Pendulum Studios’, AlterEgo division combines facial expression software, precision motion capture, and good old-fashioned artistry to reproduce the most minute facial movements you’ve ever seen on a digital actor. Every wrinkle, crinkle and twitch is reproduced with startling accuracy.

The guys over at AlterEgo have developed proprietary “facial performance software”, which combined with special mo-cap hardware, can produce unbelievably real digital faces in record time.

Test Renders of Riffa Clock Tower. Im usually eager to test my lights initially in any 3d enviroment, it helps me visualize how my end product would look like.

Light vs. Modelling, As i see it testing lights lets me know how much i need to work further on the model, a good lighting setup sometimes balances a very basic model overall giving it a very realistic look. So i know when i need to stop modeling when i get the idea of lights , since there is no point of wasting my time modeling when the lights are helping me do the job ;).  The final render of this model can be seen here.
