I’ve been playing around with the Avatarify Iphone app with some very interesting results. For those of you not familiar with it, it helps you apply motion (such as lip sync and head movements) from a video source and apply it to a still image of another face.
The app is more or less a toy but the underlying technology is amazing. As far as I know it’s not yet available as a Mac desktop application. Anyone knows something similar that can be used on the Mac, maybe as an After Effects plugin?
Take a look at Adobe’s Character Animator. I use it in my tutorials for lip sync and have played around with the webcam feature for face-tracking. I particularly like that you can export the mouth shape values to After Effects.
