hi - I’m an artist in research mode, interested in the potential of UE. I wish to use the facial tracking data of a viewer that stands in front of a screen. I want to use that data to control/trigger the pre-set responses of an animated character.
Basically: if the viewer looks at the character, the character responds one way, if the user looks away, the avatar responds another way. (The viewer would need to be about 3 feet away from the camera, so eye tracking is not possible.)
Q: Are there facial tracking plug-ins/packages for use in UE?
Q: can these be used to target and trigger event sequences of animation for a UE character?
Q: can this work as a published gaming file on a Mac or PC?
