Please note that this version only works on Windows.
If you are used to marginal savings when switching software, please do NOT assume so for this software!
This software empowers you to very easily create custom-built, realistic 3D heads, as many as you want. More importantly, once created, the 3D-models will automatically have built-in professional-quality 3D animation. You can complete all the work within Unity.
You can instantly get the expressions and mouth-shapes you want, and blend them together, all by a few simple mouse-clicks, without any need for rigging, morphing, key-framing or motion capture. It is so simple and intuitive that it is no more difficult than getting your own face to generate expressions and talk.
Though it is only a Free-version, you could appreciate that, instead of spending hundreds or even thousands of dollars on other software, and days or weeks to model and animate one single 3D head even after years of training, you can vastly cut down the cost and time by using NaturalFront's revolutionary solution.
You can watch this video to see how easily you can get this software to get you super-productive.
Please see this thread for the differences to other versions of NaturalFront plugin.
To create and animate custom-built 3D heads quickly, your hardware should have at least:
* 4-core i7/i5 CPU, or their equivalence;
* 64-bit OS;
* 8GB RAM.
Please note that in this version, the letters "NF" will be added to computed texture, which is different from the demo video that was captured on a previous Free-version.

This review was submitted for a previous version of the package. Version: 1.0
I am so new to Unity and its assets. I thought I'd try this using a photo of myself and I was totally amazed at the results. I thought it had crashed Unity, but after a good bit of patience, I had a model of my head staring back at me. Unfortunately, I have no idea what to do with it yet as all the things I really wanted to work with are disabled in this version. Can't get any full or trial versions from their site, soI'm guessing they haven't released it yet. But if/when they do, I think this will be totally brilliant. Take note though that I am a total beginner and maybe to others this is not as great as I believe it is, but so far I am taken aback that a model of my head can be created to simply from a photograph of myself.
For this Free-version of 3D Face Animation Unity Plugin, in addition to creating realistic, custom-built 3D heads, you should also be able to very easily get widely varied facial poses and extensive range of facial movement, as shown in the YouTube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fw3r7sKldbg). However, you will not be able to save the poses since it is a Free-version. Perhaps you might want to elaborate on “as all the things I really wanted to work with are disabled in this version”, so we can better help you.The Pro-version is athttps://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/#!/content/82488The Pro-version will offer - Realistic, custom-built 3D heads, as many as you want;- Super-fast modeling;- Super-fast 1-Click Animation;- Realistic and wide-range of facial expressions;- Realistic and wide-range of mouth-shapes;- Highly intuitive user interface;- Synchronization between animation and audio, and support of lip-sync;- Exports high-quality 3D models and their animation to FBX files, which can instantly run in any devices and apps supporting FBX.You will achieve these without any need for rigging, morphing, key-framing or motion capture, and the animation will be professional-quality. All you need are a good-photo and good mouse-clicking. For more details, please watch this YouTube video https://youtu.be/n-UU7Q7Cjow.You might appreciate that, for professionals and hobbyists who want to create expressive 3D characters but are short on time, budget or training, this software will empower them to race with large studios that have the budget most of us can only dream of. Don't only listen to our words, try yourself!
I used a frontal picture of myself and within 3 minutes I had a model of my face. I'm definitely going to buy the basic version so I can get the animations.This plugin rocks!!
Thank you for trying the Free-version!The Basic-version of the 3D Face Animation Plugin is now at http://u3d.as/oBxLike the Complete-version (http://u3d.as/os8), the Basic-version will offer - automatic animation; and - synchronization of animation and audio;- very easy creation of custom-built, realistic 3D heads, as many as you want.You will achieve these without any need for rigging, morphing, key-framing or motion capture. All you need are a good-photo and good mouse-clicking.However, unlike the Complete-version, the Basic-version will not offer widely varied facial poses and extensive range of realistic facial movement.But, we still can see how easy and fast 3D-face-animation could be, and will be.Things should be made as simple as possible. Do you agree?

Tried it out. Got a two exception errors thrown. The generated head doesn't look anything like the source image. Contacted the publisher waiting for reply. I'll update once I get some answers.
