This guide teaches beginning to intermediate 3D artists, designers, and animators how to create realistic facial expressions. It opens with an overview of the anatomy of the human head and facial muscles. Other topics include (for example) the lip-synch process and weighted morphing. The second edition features two new chapters on using 3ds Max and Maya for animating facial expressions. Contained on the CD-ROM are color versions of all of the figures from the book, as well as sample animations, and expression and phoneme templates in JPEG format.
