Lifemode’s multi-platform Lifestudio:Head SDK is high-end software tool for creating heads in character models, and contains a package of features and character libraries that supports Windows, PlayStation 2, Xbox and Xbox 360 platforms. The technology allows game developers and 3D artists to create sequences in games that combine automated lip-synch with nonlinear facial animation in real-time.
