FaceApp FAQ

What is Bellus3D FaceApp?

Bellus3D FaceApp for Apple iPhone X class devices, uses Apple's TrueDepth camera to capture a face in 3D. FaceApp then reconstructs the face as a lifelike 3D selfie that can be exported and shared with others.

How does it work?

Apple's TrueDepth camera projects 30,000 infrared dots onto a user's face. The Bellus3D FaceApp utilizes this camera system to capture 3D information while the user slowly turns their head in front of the camera. FaceApp then uses proprietary and sophisticated vision processing to generate a high-resolution and photo-realistic 3D model of the user's face within a few seconds.

What kind of files can I save with Bellus3D FaceApp for Apple iPhone X?

The free version allows users to save their 3D face model as an MP4 video clip in the camera roll of their iPhone. There is also an In-App purchase that allows exporting in 3D file formats such as glb, stl, or obj with .jpg texture map.

How big are the MP4 files?

The MP4 video files are typically just under 5MB depending on the compression of the scan.

Who would want to use Bellus3D FaceApp?
