Avatar SDK update: local compute, facial capture SDK and more!

Today we want to share with you some new exciting features that we released just recently! This includes a local compute option for the Cloud SDK and a beta of Face Capture SDK!

Local Compute SDK

The Local Compute SDK for iOS and Android creates an avatar locally on a mobile device without sending an image to the Avatar SDK cloud. It has the same per-avatar pricing as the Cloud SDK, and supports Face avatars (animated_face pipeline) as well as Head 1.2. It requires an internet connection only to send the number of computed avatars to the cloud. Right now the Local Compute SDK is available for Pro plan subscribers, you can download it from your AvatarSDK developer dashboard

Face Capture SDK

We have released a beta version of a facial motion capture SDK that works in realtime on modern smartphones! It allows you to animate an avatar generated by Avatar SDK from just a video stream! Beta version of the Face CaptureSDK is available on iOS and Windows for every subscription plan starting with Indie. You can get it by sending a request to our support.

We’re eager to receive your feedback! Please let us know if you have any suggestions, questions, or want to request new features. We are always available at
