Softimage Face Robot

Avid Technology today announced that it will preview Softimage Face Robot, its revolutionary new facial animation technology at the Siggraph 2005.

Face Robot software is the first technology that allows 3-D artists to
achieve realistic, lifelike facial animation for high-end film, post and
games projects. The Face Robot software supports both keyframe animation and motion capture, the primary techniques used for digital acting today. The soft tissue model
at the core of the technology removes the need to manually create dozens or even hundreds of 3-D shapes for different facial expressions and allows animators to work with an optimal number of control points. More details in this press-release.

Videos and background information on the technology are available here. Information about the famous Siggraph conference can be obtained here.
