iPad Facial GUI

A small test with connecting my iPad to 3DSMAX using the magic of TouchOSC. I had to struggle with the setup a bit until I realized I had a few too many Virtual MIDI controllers installed on my laptop. TouchOSC sends MIDI messages that are read by Float Motion Capture controllers on the facial mask that drives the morphs (I’m skipping here a couple of steps but I wouldn’t mind sharing the complete process).

There’s almost no latency between the iPad controls and 3DSMAX. In fact, what you see in the video is the real speed on both sides, with no editing to fix the delay.
