  • The Facial Animation Toolset has been very helpful in my debut film Lost &Found Box of Human Sensation which features human and abstract characters alike.

  • I've been impressed with the exceptional face animation tools, developed by the Filmakademie. I have followed their development from the beginning. They bring a new level of realism to games, VFX and virtual human design. When I wrote Virtual Humans these tools were not yet available. They are changing the game in a very positive way.
    Peter Plantec - Writer, Digital Artist and Software Designer
  • We used the Toolset to recreate historic personalities for a VFX production and I was quite surprised by the fidelity of the facial movements.

  • The quality of the non-linear deformations is simply stunning, muscle group movements and fine nuances can easily be adapted to any character.
