Facial Studio for Windows Released

Di-O-Matic has released Facial Studio for Windows, which is said to provide more than 500 controls over the 3D head creation process.Based on technology originally available as a plugin for 3ds max, Facial Studio for Windows is a standalone application that supports Kaydara’s FBX interchange file format, allowing for export of 3D heads that can be imported into such apps as Cinema4D, Maya and LightWave.

New in Facial Studio for Windows is a PhotoMatching feature that can generate 3D heads from one lateral and one vertical photograph or drawing. The resulting head can then be modified using the Facial Studio toolset before export. A wide variety of facial elements can be deformed including the mouth, eyes, ears, nose, jaw, teeth, tongue, chin, eyebrows, cheeks, forehead and the overall head shape.

Facial Studio for Windows is available for $899.00 from the Di-O-Matic site. A 30-day limited trial version is also available for download.
