The Face Machine is Anzovin Studio’s new auto-rigging tool for Maya, but instead of rigging bodies, it rigs faces! Like The Setup Machine, The Face Machine (or TFM) automatically installs a high-level facial setup and does intelligent point weighting.
TFM supports both box controls and direct controls that allow the animator to simply grab the face and deform it into the exact expression desired. Since it’s based on direct deformation, rather then a set of pre-defined blend shapes, TFM rigs can produce any expression you can imagine with unparalleled ease. The Face Machine makes rigging a face fast and easy.
