Is it possible to have an animated texture of facial features on a characters face in unity? (I haven't made the game yet, I'm researching). I would like to achieve a cartoon effect.
Yes you can achieve this using many way like:
Solution # 1, Using sprite sheet like mechanism: (not recommended)
It this way you will be having multiple texture for you character face and you will be changing character face texture over time.
- Easy to implement.
- Too many textures.
- No run time controls.
- Hard to make changes to the facial expression.
Solution # 2, Using Blend shapes:(recommended)
It this way you don't have to create too many texture instead you will be having only one texture.
- Only one texture to work with.
- Full facial expression controls at run time.
- Easy to edit.
- Can create many expressions.
- time consuming at start.
