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.

FaceBuilder provides a set of checks to disable some parts of a model. It can be handy when you exporting a part of a head, not a full model.

PinTool under the hood

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.

FaceBuilder FAQ

What actually happens when I change a pin's position?

Using all the pins from all the key frames FaceBuilder recalculates the resulting model's shape and model's positions in each key frame.

Can I use FaceBuilder with a video?

Yes, you can build a model using a video instead of a sequence of photos. Basically there is no difference between the two ways.

Can I use FaceBuilder with a set of photos with different resolutions?

No. Currently all the photos should have the same resolution.
