    FaceRig's project has just now raised over 200k in sales!

    Currently here is what will be added EXTRA.

    Total: 120 000 USD. FaceRig Windows early access (that means the fully functional core features open Beta for Windows) - This is funded :D. It was the base campaign.

    Total: 130 000 USD. Hybrid sensor setup for seated position: VisageSDK for head and face + Kinect for shoulders torso. Also funded :).

    Total: 135 000 USD. Adding more hardware (camera models, video cards) to the basic set of hardware that we aim to use for compatibility testing. Funded as well :D.

    Total: 140 000 USD. Dedicated fur comb/trim tool for Windows so that it can load a model, generate the proper fur direction and length data for our fur tech, and save the model - first iteration. Funded :D.

    Total: 150 000 USD. Visual shader parameter tuner for Windows, with real time output. Will be able to detect and reload disk texture changes in real time. Can be used for characters and also as a background light environment tuner. Funded too :D.

    Total: 200 000 USD. Infrastructure for mask-based custom color tweaking (ability to easily add various spots/patterns and colors for those patterns that combine with the base texture) for any materials, taking advantage of video cards with support for DirectX 10 and 11. Will probably not work on Windows XP.






    What might come if the campaign raises enough money:

    Total: 250 000 USD. (Techno-babble warning!:) )Advanced texture compression and pre-processing tools with script driven batch processing (so that the source data is always uncompressed and the scripted adjusting iterations are non destructive, also with infrastructure in place for multi platform output so that the same source data can be compiled with different rule-sets and be output for more than just one FaceRig platform).

    Total: 260 000 USD. A second iteration on the entire common format import process (for models, materials and animations), to be made more user friendly ( the first iteration will probably have glitches/edge cases that need to be treated on a case by case basis once they are discovered).

    Total: 360 000 USD. Simple humanoid (male/female) character creator ( with sliders).

    Total: 400 000 USD. Enhanced voice processing audio engine (at Beta we expect to have an OK audio engine, but a really good one will take more resources, proper voice processing is not trivial).

    Total: 700 000 USD. Funds are also secured for the next roadmap platform iOS, and its starter pack of mobile avatars.

    Total: 710 000 USD. Web infrastructure for community avatar library.

    Total: 750 000 USD. 10 extra cinematic quality avatars we estimate a 4000 USD cost per avatar may vary depending on what outsourcing deals we may find).

    360,000 would be awesome.
    I like the idea of a massive daemon shouting at people :)

    My parents let me buy a FaceRig license and said I can only use it if I clean out my binder every few days.

    I like the steampunk Red Panda and the lady in the video who tested it out. It's my favorite model in the program so far. Can't wait for it to be released!! :D
