FaceShop Pro is a powerful stand-alone application that allows you to create a unique 3D head from your images.Recreate your favorite celebrities, family, or friends from a single photograph through patented technology which actually recreates the original camera angle for accuracy.
FaceShopâ„¢ is an innovative software program that converts a 2D image into a 3D "Poser friendly" face and head. The program not only recreates face morphs, it also creates an identical texture of the copied face. FaceShop comes in two version: Basic, and Professional.
Both versions of FaceShop are comparable when it comes to the final duplicated rendered face. What differentiates the two versions? The Basic version can only output to DAZ|Studio, while the Pro version allows output to both DAZ|Studio and Poser.
The FaceShop Basic version only allows morphing using DAZ Michael 3 and Victoria 4 figures, while FaceShop Pro allows the importing of any face mesh OBJ file. This feature allows for additional creativity when developing new characters and is especially useful when recreating a child's likeness.
With FaceShop you only need one photographic reference, unlike Poser's Face Room, which requires a portrait depicting both front and side views. Although it is possible in FaceShop to create a satisfactory finished model from a three-fourth portrait using the "mirror" feature, a straight-on-portrait gives the best results.
For this article I am reviewing the Professional version. In addition to FaceShop Pro, I utilized two additional software programs: Adobe Photoshop CS3 and e frontier's Poser 6. Although I used Photoshop for pre-prepping the photograph for my FaceShop Pro example, an Image Editor is not necessary to utilize the program.
The first step in working with either version of FaceShop is to find the perfect image. FaceShop imports the following file formats: JPEG, TIF, GIF, BMP or PCX. The specifications for the reference photograph that I used was 273 x 336 pixels at 72 dpi. Larger images can be used as the reference image, however images of 800 pixels x 800 pixels, or less, work extremely well. I highly recommend using a portrait (photograph or artwork) with a full frontal view of the face. The 'mirror image' function works well for minor imperfections, however, starting with a near perfect image creates a final image with less need for post work of the final output image.
