FaceBuilder is a Nuke node for building 3D models of human’s face or head based on just a few photos. With FaceBuilder creating a head model is as simple as working with PinTool. Get a few photos with neutral face from different angles and place a model on each of them to build a head or face model. The resulting model can be used, for example, for rigid tracking with GeoTracker or for facial gestures tracking with FaceTracker.

In some cases all you have is a footage you have to work with and you can't get photos of actor's neutral face. Even in this case you still can use FaceBuilder to create an accurate model. You'll be surprised with the results!
FaceBuilder is built to support the workflow with people of any race and any age we have here on Earth!
FaceBuilder can export only the parts of the head you really need.
FaceBuilder is built on top of PinTool and includes all its strengths such as simple and powerful model positioning tool, advanced model drawing, a lot of exporting options, focal length estimation, etc.

Yes, you can build a model using a video instead of a sequence of photos. Actually, there is no difference between the two ways.
Using all the pins from all the keyframes FaceBuilder recalculates the resulting model's shape and model's position in each keyframe.
Unfortunately, no. All the photos should have the same resolution. But we might change it in future releases.
Unfortunately, it's not possible now.
No, it's not possible now, but we have it in our plans.
