KeenTools FaceBuilder for Blender 2.8+

Version:
What's new?

KeenTools Core can be downloaded from its dedicated page

I have installed it but cannot see it anywhere/it doesn't work

First, it's always good to review the installation instructions from our guide.
Anyway, if you have installed something and it doesn't work it's better to remove it first and relaunch Blender. Then please make sure you're installing the add-on zip file on the Blender add-ons page and then you're installing the KeenTools Core library on the installed FaceBuilder settings page.

We have a guide in our blog. A video-tutorial will be available soon.

How to install FaceBuilder for Blender?

If the machine where you're going to install FaceBuilder is connected to the Internet, you need to download the add-on file only, and install it using the 'Install...' button on the Add-on page of Blender preferences window, then you'd need to install the core library using 'Install Online' button on the FaceBuilder settings pane.
If that machine is not connected to the Internet, you need to download both, the add-on file and KeenTools Core library. Then you can install the downloaded core library using 'Install From Disk' button on the FaceBuilder settings pane.

How to update FaceBuilder for Blender?

To update the add-on you need to reinstall it. Before installing a new Core Library you need to restart Blender. The recommended process would look like this: remove the old add-on, restart Blender, install a new version of add-on and then install the new Core Library. We'll address this hurdle in future releases!

What is KeenTools Core Library? Do I need to download it?

Due to Blender license limitations we have to ship our core library separately.
Luckily, our add-on is able to download the core library almost automatically, but if the machine where you want to install FaceBuilder for Blender is not connected to the Internet, then you need to download not only the add-on itself but also KeenTools Core.

Can I use FaceBuilder with Blender 2.79 or older?

Unfortunately, no. FaceBuilder works only with Blender 2.80 and newer.

Do I need a license for FaceBuilder for Blender?

Not at the moment! You can use FaceBuilder for Blender for free while it's in free open beta test. Though, we'd be really grateful if you tell us about your experience and issues you faced!

Is the KeenTools FaceBuilder open source? Where's the repository?

The add-on is an open source adapter for KeenTools Core Library, its Git repository can be found here.
