5.0 out of 5 stars How does he do it?, 1 Aug. 2004
This review is from: Stop Staring!: Facial Modeling and Animation Done Right (Paperback)
seriously, Facial modelling and animation is basically one of the hardest things to do in 3D, 1 frame of bad timing or 1 over-emphasized motion could mean the loss of reality, meaning you lose your audience!
Jason Osipa has a way of taking this complex matter, and making it extremely simple! using 4 basic movements for lip synch (open - close - wide - narrow) and 2 for the brows (up/down - squeeze)
He then takes these simple motions, and by combining them he makes stunningly realistic facial animation.
I've bought about 10 books on animation in general so far, and this is DEFINATLY the best one I've read! I Truly recommend it to anyone who is serious about character animation. Although it is more aimed to the maya user, he explains how to do the same things in other packages through sidenotes. Beware though, this book is not aimed at the novice, but more at the intermediate user.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing but not for the beginner, 30 July 2004
This review is from: Stop Staring!: Facial Modeling and Animation Done Right (Paperback)
An amazing book on how to efficiently model your head for animation and which takes you through the process of animating expressions. Aimed at the Maya user (but can also be used with other software) this isnt for people new to their software package of choice. But if you need to know a lot about animating a head and all the intricacies involved then you need this!
Well done Jason Osipa on a truly great book!
