Feature Request

facial setup integrated

Submitted by:isgo3d isgo3d isgo3d isgo3d
First of all, congratulations by your incredible product. I wonder if it is possible that you incorporate a facial animation bones setup and controls. Another question, Would it be possible to incorporate the ability to choose how many joints have the spine? Regards.

    Hey, thanks! Glad you like the rig so far! I am planning on adding an option of 3-5 spine joints to give more deformation control. In my experience, any more than that and it becomes a lot more work for painting weights for nice deformations. How many spine joints do you usually prefer? Dustin

    Hi Dustin, are you planning or in the process of creating the integration of a facial rig into the script? or is this

    A facial rig setup is something I would like to do. I am in the process of building a modular tool which I hope to release very soon. Once that is complete and I squash most of the bugs that result from a new release, I hope to start designing a facial rigging system. A face rig is not an easy feat. There are some big questions and challenges that go with it: -joint driven vs blendshapes vs clusters -controls on the face vs Osipa-style vs custom channels vs custom UI -where to put pivots of deformers. -how best to group controls and offer enough flexibility to cover a wide range of needs -how to deal with extreme difference in faces (eg. crocodiles or insects with many eyes) So these are all things I have been giving a great deal of consideration. I want to find the "best" solution that will work for most people.

    If somehow a solid surface like a mesh could be pushed or pulled and scaled over a subject's face as a marker to wrap your code into place and the optional inclusion of teeth & eyes and a circle with nodes to position and line up on the mouth and eyes. Some auto rig systems look just as busy/complicated as rigging from scratch and hard to see if your model is complex as well. -just a thought. Because RapidRig may only mainly be use for Bipeds you may not have to think about dealing with extreme facial structures like crocodiles for now. -Overall you would know better than I, I'm new at rigging. I have been looking for an advanced autorig for faces for realism, I already have The Face Machine but I like your approach better on rigging/automation -less steps/complications.

    Update : Adding a check box for adding each additional yet optional bone components allowing one to work on/move each exclusively a time such as cheeks, lips, brows etc. may be helpful.
