Faceit is an all-in-one facial rigging, motion capture and animation Add-on. An intuitive, semi-automatic and non-destructive workflow guides you through the creation of facial shape keys that are perfectly adapted to your 3D model's topology and morphology, whether it’s a photorealistic human, anthropomorphic or cartoon model. You maintain full artistic control while saving a ton of time and energy.
