Hi All,

This is my first post, hope I am posting in the correct location....

I need to develop an application for a college project that displays a 3D facial model whose expression is controlled by and reflects the "feel" of music currently playing. Is it possible to do this using FacePoser?

Basicaly, is it possible to change/trigger facial expressions through the use of sound or music?

Any ideas/suggesions?

Thanks,
Lewis.

Its possible but I'd recomend coding a tech demo mod to do it.

Theres a major problem your going to run into though, detecting the tone of the music, yur eithier doing it manually defeating the purpose or you've got to do some crazy analyzing crap, that or laod another file that contains mood changes and times.
