Tutorial – Face Rigging 101 for Brekel Kinect Pro Face

I’ve posted a tutorial on how to connect a blendshape / morph target rig to FBX data from Brekel Kinect Pro Face.



I use Maya but the concepts should be applicable to any 3D package that can read FBX files and use blendshapes / morph targets, which should be pretty much any 3D package nowadays 🙂


If you want to follow along, the latest installers will place the  example rig in your installation folder, example data files can be found on the downloads page.


Big thanks to Jochem Aarts from www.realizm.nl for providing the model!
