A new iOS app from Epic Games allows game developers to easily and quickly register facial expressions and import them directly into the Unreal engine. The application uses several existing Apple technologies, notably its ARKit augmented reality platform and the TrueDepth camera that Apple introduced with the iPhone X in 2017. These are the same technologies that Apple uses for its Animoji and Memoji software, which reproduce your facial expressions on avatars. The Epic app can be used by game designers and developers, but also by studio actors in motion-capture suits. Once imported into Unreal Engine, the facial animation data can be adjusted. The Live Link Face app is now downloadable for free from the App Store.
