Is there any good software available to stretch for example face textures. I would like to change the face texture for one model to be a face of one of my friends (got a nice photo of him)?
I tried all kind of warping & morphing softwares but gould not find any goood one for this.

Any hints?

I think the problem is people have unique facial proportions. Eyes that are further apart/closer together. Big chins/small chins. High brows/low brows etc etc.

I don't think software could really remap a human face texture and apply it over a mesh designed for someone elses face, just by stretching alone. I think that would be more of a manual task in a photo app/image app.

Only problem is, when you rejig his face, he probably won't look the same anymore :o)

I've seen this kind of software somewhere, you could mark key points for eyes, mouth etc.. into both photos and then it changed the original to look like the target image, or some something like that.

Just forgot the name of the program unfortunately....

Anyway of course I need also make some vertex manipulation for the head shape etc...
