ReveRig is a Blender Add-on specially designed to facilitate the facial animation process, from the creation of the face rig to the retargeting phase of the facial animations created with motion capture systems, up to allowing precise management of the facial animation itself. It is particularly tailored for characters with 52 shape keys provided by Apple ARKit, enhancing facial animation capabilities with devices like the iPhone X.

Key Features:

  • Facial Rigging: Automatically generates a 2D viewport facial rig that manages the 52 shape keys from ARKit. The setup integrates the facial rig with the character using semi-automated drivers.
  • Animation Retargeting: Offers tools for retargeting facial animations with an intuitive interface that simplifies the process of transferring animations from a mocap model to the facial rig created by ReveRig.
  • Drivers Manager: Provides detailed control with sliders that manage facial animations intuitively. Each of the 52 shape keys can be finely adjusted with an ‘Amp value’ to exaggerate expressions.
  • Compatibility and Versatility: Works with any character that incorporates 52 shape keys and is compatible with various rigs and armatures, such as Auto-Rig Pro, Rigify, and BlenRig.
  • Advanced Support for Facial Animation: Enables the creation of facial animations from start to finish without the need for external motion capture systems.
