FaceRig: Avatars, Features, and Omegle-ing
Using just your webcam, FaceRig (Holotech Studios) maps your facial movements onto a virtual avatar of your choice. I check out the beta and explore its current offerings, looking at the avatars, backgrounds, and customization that's available. I end the video by testing the program on Omegle.
Here are my impressions I wrote on NeoGAF:
Steam beta keys have been sent out to Indiegogo backers. It'll go into public beta starting tomorrow, at which it'll cost $15. It costs $10 if you preorder.
I messed with the program for a while yesterday and it works pretty well. They decided to include all the virtual avatars they currently have (excluding licensed ones, which can be downloaded later). The thing that surprised me the most is the amount of customization you have over avatars and backgrounds. You can also create your own in a separate modeling program and import them. I also used it on Omegle for a little bit. That was... interesting. I saw one guy on Twitch using the program already.
It's not perfect and they have some kinks to work out. They said they are focused on fixing bugs for the next couple of weeks.
