Yakuza 7

Facial Rigs

  • Company: Cubic Motion
  • Technology: Maya

I provided rigging support for the Yakuza 7: Like a Dragon dub to English.

Because of fundamental differences in speech between Japanese and English the facial rigs for Yakuza 7: Like a Dragon were adjusted to fit the needs for the animators working on the English dub.

To meet the needs of the animators a new rig was made for the lower face to get the best results for the lipsync animation in English. The rigs were made in Maya with in house rigging tools.
