FacePro Expands Low-Cost Facial Animation Service to Unreal 3 Developers

For Immediate Release

PRIEST RIVER, IDAHO– Feb. 10, 2010– FacePro has announced the expansion of its low-cost facial animation service to game developers using Unreal Engine 3.

“UE3 includes the FaceFX® animation toolset, and since we use FaceFX as part of our streamlined production pipeline, it makes sense for us to offer Unreal developers a dedicated program” said Rod Stafford, President of FacePro.

Included in the new UE3 service is facial rigging, FaceFX setup, and pre-production testing.

“The FacePro UE3 service offering is unique, because it leverages the powerful integration of FaceFX technology in Unreal Engine 3. FacePro is adding world-class service to an industry leading technology platform,” according to Doug Perkowski, CEO of OC3 Entertainment, creators of FaceFX.

Working closely with OC3, FacePro has developed new techniques for creating highly realistic facial animation, and developed the innovative REV animation interface to streamline the process and reduce production costs– to only $5.00 USD Per Second.
