Despite the fact that facerig can be found on Steam it is not a game but rather an application. How does it work you might ask? Well it is relatively simple.The application uses your webcam to digitally transfer your face to the computer and then create a 3D avatar of any character, you might choose.
The avatar which is going to appear on the screen is going to copy moves of your lips, face and your speech. Imagine, how much fun it might provide to you. To provide you with an example, you can choose your favorite and turn yourself into them.
Great application for webcam and streams
The application gained a lot of praise from streamers and people who create webcam video productions. For example you can prepare a stream on twitch on Halloween where you are going to look like character from horror movie. Simply amazing and great for entertainment.
Characters and models
The thing which probably is going to interest you the most about Facerig is what types of characters and models you can use to have fun. As it was stated before you can create your own avatars. However, the software also has a quite impressive list of already existing avatars which you can use immediately after you download Facerig. Since the application was provided on Steam, it has an entire roster of characters from Team Fortress 2.
However, there are many more other characters. For example Santa Claus. Imagine cold, white Christmas and your children waiting for a Santa Claus. Now you can turn yourself into him with a simple camera. Make your children happy (if you have them) during Christmas.
New level for video production
Facerig seems like a really simple program. It provides video creators with countless new possibilities. They can produce independent characters which they can use in their movies, quite easily. The interface within the context of models creation is really simple to use for almost everyone. Hence, you can actually consider Facerig as a program which is going to allow you, to take first steps in the 3D graphics. This application is going to provide you and your friends with many hours of fun and dozens of good laughs.
