Facial Motion Capture made easy.

Using the True Depth camera available in the iPhoneX and higher, or iPad Pro 3rd Gen, with CV-AR you can quickly, and easily, capture your facial animation and send it to Cinema 4D, including textures and sound. Create new and exciting motion graphics and character animations today!

Use your own likeness directly in Cinema 4D to create new motion graphics, drive Pose Morphs, or any other parameter in Cinema 4D.

CV-AR makes use of the front facing True Depth camera, in the iPhoneX (and higher), or iPad Pro 3rd Gen, to capture your face structure, facial movement, images, eye movement and also your voice. It requires access to the front facing camera and microphone. This data is stored locally on your iPhone/iPad within the App itself. You can manage your captures and transfer them to Cinema 4D to use your own likeness in 3D scenes, or to drive the animation of other characters.

The data can be deleted from your phone at any time via the captures tab. The data is not transmitted anywhere else, other than to Cinema 4D, which is completely under your control. When the data is sent to Cinema 4D it is stored in a folder of your choosing, and the data can be deleted at any time.

Pay attention MAXON

It’s a great app, but you need to make clear that it only works on iPhones with the required sensors. I’m not a dev so I wouldn’t know how, but if you can, limit the app’s download availability to only the devices it operates on. I already see confused reviews. Other than that, nice app!
