Loom.ai enables a new era of virtual communication by automatically converting selfies into expressive 3D avatars. The core technology leverages Loom.ai’s deep expertise in computer vision and machine learning combined with VFX magic to create life-like human face visualizations.
The animatable and expressive faces can be used to power applications in VR, gaming, messaging, e-commerce and virtual classrooms for individuals and businesses around the world.
Personalized photoreal 3D facial rig from a single front facing photograph using our public Avatar API. Fully automatic pipeline deployed on the cloud. These results are produced using a pre-defined facial animation cycle.
The output of Avatar API is an industry-grade FACS facial rig customized to the user photo and can be imported into any standard game engine or digital content creation pipeline.
