Face Modeling Language

The Face Modeling Language (FML) is a scripting language used for creating facial animation in 3D projects. Initially developed by Viewpoint DataLabs, it was intended to provide a standardized method for representing facial movements and expressions across different platforms and software. The FML scripts can be applied to the underlying geometry of a character's face or head mesh, allowing animators to define how these structures deform during speech, emotive gestures or other actions. It also helps facilitate the transfer of complex facial animations between various 3D modeling and animation programs without requiring manual reworking, saving time and effort in the production pipeline.
