FaceBaker: Baking Character Facial Rigs with Machine Learning

Sarah Radzihovsky, Fernando de Goes, Mark Meyer
June 2020

Character rigs are procedural systems that deform a character's shape driven by a set of rig-control variables. Film quality character rigs are highly complex and therefore computationally expensive and slow to evaluate. We present a machine learning method for approximating facial mesh deformations which reduces rig computations, increases longevity of ... more
