FaceBuilder for Blender

This version supports Blender 3.1 and works natively on Apple Silicon builds of Blender. In terms of features, we added the possibility to apply expressions from photos to the 3D-model; split up rigidity controls of eye blinking, neck movements and general facial expressions; and added basic photo adjustment for tweaking photos for cases when they're too dark or bright.

Nuke nodes

Among many fixes and improvements to all nodes, FaceBuilder and FaceTracker nodes have received the same improvements to the rigidity customisation.

License Server

Starting with this version, License Server is using a new, more stable Hardware ID algorithm. It should help in situations when the hardware is changing often, for example due to a VPN connection that creates new virtual network adapters.

As usual, 30 days of the fully-featured trial included upon the first installation.
