    The available cracks out there simply don't seem to work - you can use the tool, but exporting and reloading projects fails with a 'get faceshift at faceshift.com' project loaded/exported instead.

    Would it be possible to get this fixed? Faceshift was acquired by Apple and even legitimate customers are now left unable to use the tool as support is no longer staffed, so activation is impossible.

    I can provide installers; licensing seems to be partially via RLM.

    Dynamixyz Performer is way better than Faceshift and doesn’t need specific hardware.

    I ask primarily because I have a license for this but can't activate it and can't use it. The workflow, given a Kinect, is somewhat pleasant in Faceshift, with the guided calibration and automatic marker setup (rather than manual tracking marker placement). I'll take a look at your suggestion, though it looks like you can't just go directly from a Webcam. but need an offline recording (and it doesn't have the opportunity to guide you through the calibration poses as a consequence.

    Might be coz the website no longer exists. It obviously used a web connection to check. I looked at the code and it does make a few calls to the internet. Dead product.

    Not any more - I used to (2014.x, perpetual license), but faceshift licensing commits suicide if the OS changes unexpectedly (major upgrade, reinstall). Given warning / experience, the license could be rehosted, but by the time you realize something broke the license, it's too late so that option is largely useless.

    The iND faceshift 2015 release seems to work for the initial session (you can calibrate, record a track, etc. and all seems fine). There must be some checks that are failing, but I hoped might be fixable.

    Apple, as usual with acquisitions, moved fairly quickly to kill off the overall product - it didn't fail for lack of value, but more due to Apple's continuing 'mine' attitude.

    Performer and Grabber are a lot better than Faceshift, you can use a simple webcam and don’t have to place markers. It’s working with machine learning.

    The tracking results are also a lot better than with Faceshift.

    Integrations in 3ds Max/Maya and Real-time in UE4 are also possible.

    Hello Max, what is the difference between Grabber and Performer?

    Performer is for offline capture and training a machine learning model.

    Grabber is for real-time tracking with a machine learning model trained in performer.
