How to Record for the ‘ARKIT (LiveLink Face)’ format

Here’s how to make a recording in the ‘ARKIT (LiveLink Face)’ format.

It requires an iPhone 11 or higher (Epic Games recommends iPhone 12 or higher).

 

INSTALL & SETUP

  1.  Install the latest “LiveLink Face” app on your iPhone.

  2. Open the “LiveLink Face” app.
  3. It might ask you if you want to record in ARKIT or METAHUMAN ANIMATOR format, and if it does, choose the ARKIT format to record in.
  4. Go into the SETTINGS

  5. Make sure it’s in ARKIT mode.


  6. Get out of settings.

  7. Click the CALIBRATION icon
  8. Click on ‘RECALIBRATE‘ or ‘CALIBRATE‘ if the option appears


  9. Make a neutral face expression and press the record button
  10. Change the recording name and take number to something helpful, like ‘Performance / Take 1‘.
  11. Now record your performance take. Press the red RECORD button to start recording.

 

TRANSFER TAKES TO YOUR PC

Once you finish recording, you need to transfer all the takes to your PC.

  • To do that, go into the playback menu of the app.

  • Choose all performance takes, and transfer them to your desktop computer.

AUDIO FROM RECORDING

If you want to use the audio (that your iPhone captured during your recording) in iClone, you’ll need to find the .mov file that it recorded, then use an audio program (freeware AUDACITY does a good job) to convert it to a 16-bit or 8-bit WAV file.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT create a 32-bit FLOAT WAV file (which is the default in most Adobe programs). iClone is not compatible with 32-bit FLOAT WAV files.
