This video focuses on facial bone rigging and animation. Most game engines do not support blend shapes so it is imperative to know how to create a solid facial rig with just using bones. With the right rig and setup, it is possible to create stunning facial animations in very short amounts of time. If you are a student this video is great to become exposed to professional techniques in the game industry.
