Rig on Demand is out!

October 13, 2016

Hi Folks,

we are incredibly proud to announce the release of Rig on Demand, Eisko's online rigging technology, second automatic service from our dedicated platform: eiskoservices.com




And this one is all you expected and more! From just uploading any static head model (sculpted or scanned-based), you'll simply get back a fully functional facial set-up featuring more than 120 expressions, skinning rig and different levels of  controllers.

These expressions are all issued from HD scans (
also available separately with Blendshapes on Demand). They cover the whole set of muscular deformations, as well as a large range of visemes/phonemes and emotions, and are all perfectly adapted to your model's morphology and topology whatever your character's design (photoreal, stylised, cartoon...).

The rig is both detailed
 and intuitive, allowing the fine control of the expressions through blendshapes, side panels sliders combination and on-mesh curves & handles. All separate elements such as eyeballs, eyebrows and eyelashes, inner mouth (jaw, teeth, gums, tongue) are linked to the facial deformations, but can also be driven precisely by adjustable controllers.

Flexible, robust and easy to use, the rig is compatible with Maya 2016 and will then smoothly integrate any precomputed or real-time animation pipeline, regardless of your animation approach (Keyframing, Motion capture or Video tracking).

Put it this way, if you need a fast, high-quality and affordable facial rig for Maya, fitting all morphologies, topologies, and modeling styles, and you want it compliant with any animation technique, Rig on Demand is just what you are looking for.

Don't hesitate to contact us for more details or visit our faqs.

Get ready for Rig On Demand

September 14, 2016

Hi Folks,

after the success of Blendshapes on Demand, we are really excited to introduce Rig on Demand, the next technology feature of our online platform Eisko Services.




You might have guessed: this fast and automated service will grant any rigid head model with a fully functional facial rig in just a few clicks. As it is based on blendshapes generation, the rig takes advantage of a complete set of facial expressions covering the whole range of muscular deformations, visemes and emotional expressions, all perfectly adapted to your model's morphology and topology.

But bones/skinning fans needn't worry, it will also offer a more traditional and detailed way of controlling the shapes and expressions, as well as a fine control over the head's complemented elements (eyes, eyelashes, inner-mouth, tongue and jaw features), and all perfectly adapted to your animation's approach i/o (MoCap, Video tracking, Keyframe...).

Therefore, Eisko Services' Rig on Demand fits right in for any indie projects or larger animation  frameworks and will make you gain tremendous amounts of time, energy and money!

Stay tuned and don't miss the launch date!

Cheers
Eisko.

January 19, 2016

Happy new year Folks,

we could not wait to reveal the first digitally reconstructed model in the very style of the legendary Harcourt photos. Working closely with celebrities' favorite studios has been a real treat for our team on every step of the production.

This collaboration brings together what is best in terms of live-action photography, meticulous lighting and framing at its core, hand in hand with the high-end technological expertise of Eisko in order to push new boundaries in the fields of prestige digital photography, 3D printing and many other innovative interactive representations.

Have a look at what it took both Harcourt and Eisko to bring about this undertaking, from studio shoot to 3D capture, reconstruction, virtual lighting, mobile stylized visualization and 3D printing:




What a better way to kick off the new year!

Stay tuned as we’ll soon reveal more about the brand new products of this amazing collaboration!
