newbie question - limited sculpting functionality required?

Posted: June 05, 2007
I am scanning Point Cloud to Polygons - human faces

I want to replace the eyes, which are generally a mess, with preformed eyes.

I have such an eye in OBJ format but I need to tweak it for each individual subject as eyes are very unique and form a major part of our recognition siugnature.

I need a basic 3d prog that does not have a huge learning curve. All it needs to do is allow me to push and pull at polygons so as to move the brow shape/ undercut around - and also to shape, recurve and resize the eyelid contours. See image attached. I would use a standard jpeg texture photo for working from.

Some functionality in hair would be a bonus. I don't need lighting, texture, or anything else.

I wondered if there are any relatively easy learning curve 3D apps that will enable me to push and pull polygons around in this way. All I need is one tutorial! After I have “individualized” the eye file I can drop it (register)back into the polgonized head scan.

If you have any ideas I would be grateful to hear them

Many thanks

You can try wings 3d it's free and has all the functionality you need.
Another option would be silo 3d.. it is a more complex commercial program for 3d modeling.
