On Monday, 27th May 2022, Roblox launched a new developer feature called “dynamic head.” A dynamic head is a type of avatar head that supports facial expressions. This feature allows the developers to add emoticons to characters through facial expressions in the games.
Adding this feature, Roblox now allows the developers to do customizations and express their creative sides. Moreover, Roblox will soon be adding this feature to the avatars shop for all the 52 million players from around the world.
Previously, the dynamic heads beta version was out. But now it is officially realized. Developers can now use them for NPCs, can add them to their avatar editor, trigger emotes combining body and facial expressions, and much more!
In short, facial expressions are a new addition to the culture of the Roblox platform.
Moreover, the update also enables the developers to sculpt Roblox avatars. They can carve faces to fix certain facial expressions according to their will. Developers are enjoying the new feature and adopting them at a quick pace in their games. One of the developers tweeted.
“I wrote a short script to generate a random face animation using Roblox’s new facial animation system. And oh god, what have I done.”
Along with this, adding the Dynamic heads feature opens a gate to more possibilities. Developers can use this feature to make more realistic avatars. They can add blinking, smiling, talking, and other facial movements to the game characters.
Moreover, with a little bit of creativity and skill, developers can also create amazing mini-movies! Yes, you read it right. Making use of the Dynamic head feature, developers can develop mini-movies such as “The Last Guest” a 2019 hit on Youtube by ObliviousHD.
Everyone likes the new feature, and the Roblox developers gave a positive response to it.
