Introducing the Facial Auto RIG tool, the first of its kind in the Tuna series.

The existing blend shape FACS-based rigging method is very good in quality and features, but I thought it was time-consuming and expensive in the manufacturing process especially for individual users.

So I decided to develop this tool at the end of my consider.

This tool is for Maya and only works as a joint. However, the movement of each joint was designed for FACS based muscle movement.

Of course, it's not incredibly perfect compared to the existing FACS blendshape RIG or actual real face.

But if you use this tool, even individual users can easily do high quality facial rigging.

You can also control the degree to which other controller's movement is affected by the follow attribute to match the actual facial muscle usage of the character, even after rigging the character's face.

This rigging method is very suitable for developing game character facials. However, for animation purposes, please note that there are no features such as squash or stretch the facial muscles.

    I would like to ask this plugin can be generated in Maya2017, but can I use these face controllers in Maya2016?

      Thank you for your interst! This tool was created in Maya 2018, but we confirmed that rig can also be generated in Maya 2017. However, when setting up rigging using Maya 2017, there was a problem with the character's eye target system and controller. I think this might be occur in Maya 2016 as well. So I recommend you use Maya 2018. If you use a version lower than Maya 2017, sorry about that I cannot guarantee the function works properly..
