DIY body tracking


Well, hardly DIY.. but it always feels like that when you're hacking found off-the-shelf stuffs together.  Here I'm grabbing depth/tracking from a Kinect, and overlaying it ontop of the RBG image in real-time within Unreal itself.   

The goal now will be to clean this up,and use it to drive a Ctrl Rig, or some such...

Getting the talent ready

Just playing with a few things on the workflow for my virtual talent.  Hair dynamics, and some slight improvements overall.  She's being driven by Face Link Live.

Friday Night Lights

Devised a fun way to do real-time 'prismatic lights'.  They were created as a design element visualization for something or another..   Enjoy.

More Daz + Live Link Face

Just another nightly test I did with the Daz Girl.  Took some Miximo animation and gave her some movement.  A little work on her and I think I'll start casting her in some roles.  Enjoy.

Testing out Epic's Live Link Facial iPhone App

Hey ho..  last week Epic released the Live Link Facial app for iphone.  So I gave it a whirl.  My intial thoughts are how easy it is to use, and how effective it is even over WiFi!

So I grabbed a Daz model, and gave it a go.  Not too bad for a couple hours of work imo.
I'll keep playing with this.  This may offer a solution I was looking for of how to get Virtual Talent into some of my scenes.   Just imagine this character driving the car I've been playing with in earlier tests.

I'll keep you posted.
