Not sure if this was said in the post (i understand 2% of anything said in the post), but will this be forced onto old avatars?

this is legit scaring me


No. This post isn’t specifically about the faces, but it’s about the technology that allows accessories like beards and glasses to wrap around all types of heads including dynamic heads. They’ve mentioned numerous amounts of times that they won’t force Dynamic heads into players.


These beards just need a nice texture! The sharp contrast with the goblin makes it look like electrical tape!


Hi Developers!
Today we are releasing Automatic Skinning Transfer out of beta!

So, what does this mean?

It means that Automatic Skinning Transfer can be enabled for any Layered Clothing asset in a live experience. This allows accessories to be deformed properly without having to build skinning into the asset itself.

While Automatic Skinning Transfer was in beta we ran performance tests to ensure that this tech did not materially affect the performance of any live experience. We are constantly looking for feedback so let us know if you encounter any issues!

So, what’s next?

Currently, Automatic Skinning Transfer doesn’t work on blocky-type bodies that are not skinned. We are working on extending auto-skinning to work on layered clothing items for bodies that are made out of rigid parts without skinning.

We have also released new documentation around creating a Face Accessory, you can find that here: Link

Please let us know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns!
