fxguide reviews Persona

fxguide’s Mike Seymour sat down with our Product Manager, Tony Lacey, and Chief Technical Officer, Steve Caulkin to talk all things Persona. Take a look below –

“The company recently launched Persona an end to end hardware and software solution for emotional performance capture. Designed from the ground up for live performances, Persona enables immediate character animation in real-time engines normally in Epic Games’ UE4.
