No, the various controls are statistically correlated and cannot be perfectly isolated.
Yes. If you don't like any of the meshes included with Modeller, you can add your own with Customizer.
This is done automatically based on the amount of detail in the source photo, up to a max size of 2048x2048 (32-bit) or 4096x4096 (64-bit version).
No. Hairstyles for 3D printing must be specially designed for that purpose.
We will be adding more hair models over time. You can also add your own using the Integration Tools or the older Customizer.
This requires our SDK
The age control goes down to age 15, and the photofit works optimally down to about age 12, below which results may vary. We have no near-term plans to extend the range.
FaceGen is a static face modelling technology which creates a personalized head mesh along with morph targets for animation. It does not produce any kind of timeline data so another program must be used to do the actual animation.
The Shape and Color tab sliders are linear projections into our 'face space' consisting of 50 dimensions of symmetric shape, 30 dimensions of asymmetric shape and 50 dimensions of symmetric color. The age, gender and racial group sliders are linear regressions on our data set in that space. The caricature and asymmetry sliders are difference magnitudes from the mean for the given age, gender and racial group. Our face space was created by principal components analysis from a data set consisting of 273 high-resolution 3D face scans (scan demographics). We have not published a paper detailing our methodology.
