Face Capture is the process of electronically converting the movements of a person’s face into a digital database using cameras, laser scanners or software.

This database may then be used to produce CG (computer graphics), computer animation for movies, games, or real-time avatars. Because the motion of CG characters is derived from the movements of real people, it results in more realistic and nuanced computer character animation than if the animation were created manually.
