AS SFC - Secondary Face Controls for Maya is a tool to improve your facial rig allowing the animators to tweaks with face expressions. This tool provides a solution and automation for make secondary controls follows the geometry vertex of the mesh modified from the blendshapes. In this way you can be able to create rig that have blendshape deformations and at the same time animation curve controls that enable to tweak expressions.

Instructions - Selection steps:

  1. the animation curve node to get the prefix or subfix of your controller
  2. the joint you want to parent with . (example: if you need to create secondary controls for face expressions you need to select the Head Joint)
  3. the mesh (with skinning and blendshapes) that will be the geometry that the seconday controls must to constraint to.
