[prMac.com] Vancouver, Canada - First Rodeo Software today is pleased to announce the release of Face2Face 3D 1.0, a new face swapping and blending app for iPhone and iPod touch. Requiring minimal user input, the app lets users swap or smoothly blend between pairs of faces in photos. The results are often startling and hilarious.
Unlike traditional 2D methods, which often make it look like a cutout head has been pasted onto a body, Face2Face's 3D algorithms automatically determine and compensate for the orientation and shapes of the heads. This allows for faces to be rotated away from the camera, and provides very convincing blends with the user required to position only a few points within the images.
The app creates a full 3D model of each face which is fun to play with using the iPhone/iPod touch screen. Users can rotate, translate, and zoom the 3D "masks" to achieve exactly the effect they want with the overlaid face. When the creation is complete, it can be shared via email or Facebook, or saved for later viewing. A short video tutorial is bundled with the app so that users can get fantastic results immediately.
* iPhone or iPod touch
* Requires iOS 3.0 or later
