Professional Review


FaceRig is a utility for PC, which hides your face behind a funny mask and mimics your facial expressions in real time. It features a large assortment of animated masks: from animals to androids. Also, there's a considerable palette of special effects. Download FaceRig if you don't mind transforming into a talking whiskery kitty samurai!

Functionality 4.5/5

FaceRig literally scans your face through the web camera and then imitates your lip movement and expressions of your face: smiling, frowning, squinting, etc. Needless to say, the FaceRig app requires a powerful, top-tier machine to run without stuttering.

The animated mask library includes a mixture of goofy, eccentric and adorable characters:

  • Talking Cheeseburger;
  • Racoonie named Fluffo;
  • Robot;
  • Santa Claus;
  • Tiger and Wolf;
  • Shy little owl known as Buckwig;
  • Twiggy the Monkey;
  • Anime girl Midori-chan, etc.

Each one of the avatars momentarily adjusts to the speed of your speech and the character of pronunciation. This allows to host funny video calls in Skype/FaceTime, record videos on the spot and probably broadcast a visual message via Twitch, etc.

Our FaceRig review reminds you that you can make a ton of experimentation in it. E.g., backgrounds are easily changeable in the FaceRig latest version. It's possible thanks to the green screen technology. Simply choose a picture from your private collection and upload it to the app.

Almost every character has different outfits and images. Besides, you can tweak their appearance via regulating the skin/fur texture quality and so on. Audio effects include pitch shifting, reverberation, filtering, distortion, etc. So if you decide to pose as a cyborg, you can make your voice sound robotic.

Usability 3.5/5

FaceRig is excellent for fun and play. A creative video-message, humorous instruction, quirky birthday greeting for a child, a light and funny tutorial — FaceRig can handle it all. Odds are it will be mostly used as a toy. But if you're into forging creative, entertaining content — the app could be added to your arsenal.

Cross-platform Use 2/5

FaceRig system requirements aren't low: 4 GB RAM and 4 GB of disk space. Sadly, you won't find FaceRig iOS version, at least so far. Only Windows and Mac can pull the job off with this one.

In-app purchases 2/5

Unfortunately, apart from the starting price of about $6, FaceRig charges almost $18 for the Pro version. The upgraded app features the full functionality plus it erases the perma-logo of the program from your videos. Additionally, there's a myriad of extra masks. Some, like Political Avatars, cost nothing. Others, like Julien the Pug, start with at least half a dollar price.

Conclusion

Silly and goofy, FaceRig is a nice hybrid of a toy and a desktop application. There's little practical usage you can gain from it, but it's good for making zany videos, starring you as another eccentric being. After all, not every single thing must be useful from the pragmatic point of view.

Conclusion

Download FaceRig if you want to amuse your close ones and yourself with the new fluffy persona!
