Modeling for Facial Animation

in Alias Power Animator

Step five: Example

This example is an animated GIF file of a 30 frame animation. There are a total of six keyframes applied to the head. Two for the eyes blinking, and four for the mouth opening and closing.

Everything was animated using the ShapeShifter functionality in Alias Power Animator. It's a very powerful tool that removes several tedious steps from the process of animating lipsync audio and facial expressions. Use it often and wisely.
