Based on the Avatarion's Tethys 3D solution, Portraid3D allows developers to create realistic, 3D, animated avatars from image files. The avatars are web publishable through HTTP embed code or can be used in third party applications.
Depending on your desired use, pricing plans run from free (12 avatars/month) to a $1,500 ultra membership (100,000 avatars/month). Image files should ideally contain only one face with as high a resolution as possible.
The REST API creates avatars from a POST file or GET from a designated URL. Response data is formatted in JSON. An account with Mashape is required for usage of the API.
