When you proceed to checkout and upload your model, you need to respect the following criteria:

   • Your 3D model must have a neutral pose (eyes open and mouth shut)

   • Model can be uploaded with full body, rig, and skin.

   • You must include your model's eyeballs and inner mouth (teeth, gum, tongue) as additional meshes

   • If you have any other additional features such as eyelashes, eyebrows, or beards, they should also be included

After uploading your model, it is added to the queue and our team will check it. As soon as they approve it and your order is the 1st in the queue, it will be processed within 24 hours.

By default, we combine the different geometries in one single mesh to facilitate using the model in motion capture or performance capture. If you would like to have the blendShapes for each geometry, we do that too, just let us know when you make your order!

Support and retakes are provided free of charge for 3 months after the delivery date.
