LOOXIS Faceworx available for download again
Due to numerous requests received by email, we are making the small tool known as LOOXIS Faceworx v.1.0 available again for Download. It was taken offline in 2011, after some bugs were discovered and made available again today (June 2013).
Faceworx is a nifty tool to easily and quickly create a 3D head out of two 2D photos, one front shot and one side shot. Both images are loaded into the software, reference lines are placed around the details of the face to adapt the generic head model to the shape of the head on the input photos. The learning curve is shallow - you will understand the tool in minutes, however don't expect miracles: Hair shape is not covered and the output 3D head in OBJ format will not be biometrically correct.
Available totally free
The Faceworx tool is available completely free no matter whether it is for educational, private or commercial use!
Some Bugs may occur
If you a discover a bug, please don't expect us to help, since it's free software and since we are making the tool available again only due to several requests!
- Error: The tool does not seem to work under Windows 64bits
Solution: Try to use a computer with WinXP 32 bits
- Bug: when exporting in OBJ format, the texture may be fully black. This is due to OpenGL issues
Solution: Try another computer or try to update your graphics card driver
