Hi I am unsure what to call this technique that Live2D uses and I wanted get some more information about it.
Here’s a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XW6Yrxnn5dM
You can see how they add the 2D textures then they can give it a pseudo 3d effect like turning the head and having the face and stuff move somewhat realistically.
What’s this technique called?
It is a specific aplication: http://www.live2d.com/en/products/cubism_editor. Too bad it is not in english.
It is a program to make animations, like you can see in the keyframe editor on the bottom.
The principle is a parallax effect. It is somehow common in website design theese days. http://matthew.wagerfield.com/parallax/ In a website you can make it interactive. On that program looks optimised for animation.
It also has some morphing controls.
I am wondering if that can be done in a real3D aplication like blender using inverse kinematics… Yea… I have homework to do…
Updated: Yea its pártially in english and it has a free version.
