DI4D is the world-leader in performance driven, facial animation services. Our proprietary 4D reconstruction pipeline reproduces every minute detail of an actor’s facial performance with precision, reconstructing a 3D scan for every video frame. This detailed surface information provides the foundation used to generate animations that capture the subtlety and intricacies of an actor’s performance, delivering convincing and believable digi-doubles and virtual human characters
Excellent client service and customer satisfaction sit at the heart of DI4D. Our talented team of experienced engineers and motion editors will be available on-hand throughout the entirety of your project. Responsive and wholly focused on success, we can adapt our core 4D reconstruction technology to the requirements of your studio’s project. Just let us know what you need and we’ll do everything that we can to make it happen.
We provide complete on-location shoot services using either the DI4D HMC or DI4D PRO systems, including shoot supervision and training. This feeds directly into our advanced, post-processing service to generate the best facial animation achievable. DI4D will slot perfectly into your studio’s facial animation pipeline to deliver direct point-cache animation applied to your mesh. If you have a facial animation challenge, talk to us and we can tailor the best solution available.
DI4D PRO Service

The DI4D PRO System captures sequences of high resolution, colour 3D facial performance data using nine synchronised 12-megapixel machine vision cameras. For closeup shots that require the most photo-real data possible, or the highest fidelity FACS, ROMS, and visemes for rigging and machine learning, the DI4D PRO system is unmatched, recreating the exact movements of any facial performance. Our DI4D PRO service includes on-set delivery, setup, supervision and 4D post-processing, ensuring your studio has the very best performance possible.
We provide a full facial performance capture service with either our UK-based system, on-location or our LA-based system and studio facilities. We’ll set up and operate a DI4D PRO System at your studio’s location of choice.
The DI4D PRO System uses standard video lighting and doesn’t require any markers, make-up or structured light projection.
The DI4D PRO System employs nine synchronised machine vision cameras with resolution of 4112 x 3008 pixels, capturing at up to 30 fps. The cameras are arranged in three “pods” of three cameras each: two monochrome (for 4D reconstruction) and one colour (for texture).
DI4D HMC Service
High-fidelity, [4D] dynamic performance capture
When projects require high fidelity facial animation in scenes with dynamic, free-moving actor performances, the DI4D HMC (Head-Mounted Camera) is the perfect solution. The DI4D HMC solution is flexible, capturing [4D] facial-performance data simultaneously from multiple actors alongside any full-body motion capture solution. Each of the stereo pair of cameras captures at a resolution of 3mp at 60 FPS, ensuring the highest quality possible while actors move freely.
We provide a full on-location facial performance capture service, setting up and supervising a DI4D HMC System capture session at your studio’s location of choice.
Combine high fidelity DI4D facial performance capture with freedom of movement and convenience of untethered capture.
The HMCs can be synchronized with the “house” time code allowing them to shoot in synchronisation with your studio’s optical motion capture systems.
We can track dense, 3D facial performance data from just two cameras fitted in place on the DI4D HMC system.
Set up and move. The DI4D HMC tracks data wirelessly, providing actors with complete free movement.
We also provide time-coded reference footage for your studio’s selection, and post-processing services, resulting in high-fidelity data supplied as a vertex cache, with optional per-frame texture and detail maps for each selected segment.
