Face Cap

Face Cap

Face cap is a facial motion capture solution for the iPhone X.

Using the front 3D camera it records and exports the users facial expressions to be used in games, animation or vfx.


  1. Records head position & rotation data
  2. Records 50 different facial expressions (as blendshape parameters)
  3. Eye tracking
  4. User configurable recording duration up to 10 minutes
  5. Records microphone input in sync
  6. Exports a generic mesh, blendshapes and animation as Ascii-fbx
  7. Native IOS sharing interface (email or dropbox your recordings)


  1. An Iphone X. Currently the iPhone X is the only IOS device with a 3D camera.

Best practices

  1. For best results place the iPhone X down or hold it still during recording.
  2. The 3D camera has a limited range, don't move too close or too far.
  3. The 3D camera needs to see your face, don't look to far up, down or sideways.
  4. For longer recordings (3 minutes+) the exported files might get too big to transfer via email. Concider using dropbox or another sharing solution if you plan to record longer sessions.
  5. Please use the app in a well lit room for best results

A video tutorial for recording/exporting and transfering the data to other characters is coming shortly.
