Markerless face motion capture from a video file with Deepmotion and Blender

How to turn your video into facial motion capture data automatically using no markers at all? In this video DJ tests the new feature introduced by Deepmotion in their Animate 3d cloud service (link: https://www.deepmotion.com/animate-3d)

Creating a simple alien abduction scene from raw video recording, DJ shows how you can create a 3d avatar straight on Deepmotion's webpage (that can even use a photo for creating a likeness of your 3d character).

With such a custom 3d character or a dummy model, you can easily create a full-rigged animation that you can download and use in Blender or any other 3d software like 3dsMax, Cinema 4D, or Maya.

The facial animations are made using shape keys so if you'd like to use your own character with the service you need to make sure itís properly set up with a rig and appropriate shape keys for the face features.

I hope you will enjoy the video and learn new skills. 😊
