The Philippines is one of the growing game development countries in the world. As of now the game titles that have been produced by local companies are less than a handful. Some of today's games are becoming more and more realistic in terms of the look, the feel and the motion that is done by the characters within a game. Motion capture is one of the most optimal way of replicating movement for 3D movement.

The research has devised a way to replicate, or at the very least approximate, the movements of human face in a given digital video to a 3D face model. The proponents have utilized image processing techniques for movement detection and XML scripting for movement encoding. As for the #D face renderer, the proponents have used the XFace Toolkit. The system posted an average correctness of 80.60% using frame per second comparison of the input video and 3D animation sequence output. The proponents also conducted a survey to reduce the subjectivity of the visual comparison, which in turn has an average of 77.06% confidence value.
