FVG LLC (http://www.fvg.com) has more than 14 years of experience in the publishing industry and over 30 in digital modeling and artificial intelligence. FVG produces the highest quality custom content for global audiences.
Two months ago FVG started using LIFESTUDIO:HEAD, the leading head modeling and facial animation technology developed by Lifemode Interactive (http://www.lifemi.com). Here is the FVG LLC quote:
LIFESTUDIO:HEAD Pro: Indispensable Technology
FVG Custom Media is a turn-key producer of high quality green and corporate social responsibility-related special advertising sections appearing in BusinessWeek magazine and online animated productions, which illustrate successful CSR and green corporate initiatives. We partner with respected sponsors such as the GLOBE Foundation, Business for Social Responsibility and content providers including the Environmental Defense Fund. Our production timelines are measured in hours or days.
LifeStudio:Head Pro (LSH) has become an indispensable part of our workflow. LSH is used to rapidly prototype models, lip syncs and animations, which are then fine tuned in ZBrush and Maya. Using LSH in our workflow allows us to create photorealistic models and animations in minutes or hours instead of days or weeks. The documentation is excellent and the system is bullet proof, i.e. it just works and does not get in the way. Integration of LSH with Autodesk Maya is seamless.
This is truly a remarkable technology, which is an incredible value for the price. I am amazed at the new uses we find for the technology beyond its primary positioning.
