Eyetronics has announced an update of Shape Snatcher Suite. Version 3.5 offers new mapping features that make it easier to create realistic 3D models and improved algorithms for faster processing. Shape Snatcher Suite v3.5 includes the newest versions of Mapping Tools and Shape Matcher in addition to new and improved features such as ellipsoid and spherical mapping, improved algorithms, and transparent patches. Eyetronics has further extended the functionality of the Shape Snatcher Suite with the release of Liquid Faces, a 3D face animation program that speeds the process of mapping real faces onto existing 3D facial templates. The new process is achieved using Eyetronic’s Shape Snatcher and Shape Matcher to scan a complete face and produce a realistic 3D facial mesh. An existing face template ready for animation is then brought into Liquid Faces from the user’s 3D animation software. The user matches up several common points between the template and the scanned face, and Liquid Faces automatically performs the morphing.
