Daymare: 1998 will be more cinematographic than ever thanks to Reallusion's iClone Faceware facial mocap software, Invader Studios announced in a press release.
The animation technology has enabled the studio to streamline the production of its first third-person survival horror IP, due out in the third quarter of 2018.
"Reallusion's iClone Faceware technology is giving us fantastic advantages. These software tools are incredibly fast, high-quality, and remarkably affordable. A true AAA technology potential for all indie video game development studios like us," the studio said in a press release.
An independent software house located in the Italian countryside, Invader Studios was officially founded in July 2016 by a group of young and ambitious game developers. The core team is made of more than 10 professionals with external collaborators working remotely from different regions.
Faceware Realtime for iClone is a professional quality, real-time facial tracking software designed to give iClone users a simple, cost-effective, and powerful tool for animating character's faces. Use a PC webcam to live mocap or import pre-recorded image sequences to drive and export natural human facial expressions and head movements to your 3D characters.
Reallusion's partnership with Faceware Technologies enables iClone 7 uses to achieve real-time facial motion capture and recording with one powerful software package. This will empower indie studios of all levels, giving them access to pro-level facial motion capture tools that are fast, accurate, and markerless -- all from a webcam.
