Here is a small demo of the facial expression system Iím working on as part of a Flash game project. There are only a small number of expressions demonstrated here but hopefully it gives you a basic idea of what is possible. I am trying to develop a system where I have a high level of control over the facial features and that is also capable of performing smooth transitions between a variety of facial expressions. Iím quite happy with the results so far but thereís still a lot of work to be done.
Iíve made a few modifications to the original version [link]
Added a few extra expressions.
Altered the buttons.
Iíve added a body so the head isnít just floating there anymore. I should point out that the body used is not the style that is going to be used in the final game although it may be used in other projects.
Iíve altered the transition so they donít start off as slowly. This was to show how you can interrupt at transition mid-transition into a different expression. Hitting multiple buttons in quick succession seems to result in slowdown but this shouldnít be an issue in the final game.
