    Blender vs Face Gen opinions
    This alternative is disputed. Blender is still a legitimate alternative to Face Gen, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    Blender is not an alternative to Face Gen period. Sure, you can create 3d models of heads with it, but it lacks all of the automation features that make Face Gen what it is.

    Blender is 3d modeling tool. Facegen is a way to automatically generate models of humans. Blender lacks this automatic functionality.
