How to Connect Hallway Tile with Blender Using Faceit

Install Faceit

Next, download the Faceit plugin. Note: Leave the file unzipped.

Open up Blender and install Faceit.

To install Faceit, go to Edit → Preferences → Desktop → Install Add-on (in Blender):

Enable the Add-on

Faceit + OSC settings

Make sure your sending settings are correct inside Hallway Tile on Windows:

Make sure your receiving settings are the same inside the Faceit pane within Blender:

Next, link your model’s rotation transforms within the Faceit pane by selecting the rotation pane, then using the eye-dropper (next to Head Object) to select your model so that Faceit links it:

Next, do the same thing for location by selecting the location pane, then using the eye-dropper (next to Head Object) to select your model so that Faceit links it:

Note that you may need to increase the Location multiplier to match the size of your scene!

Start animating!

Now you should be able to hit Start Receiver in Faceit to start the process of receiving updates from Hallway Tile in blender! You will need to enable OSC streaming in Hallway Tile as well!
