IMAGE-FACE: Image Based Rendering of Faces

Problem statement – market
  • The market requires face animation solutions that can be based on video sequences of real persons, in order to synthesize interactive animation of faces as new video sequences.
Scientific challenges & contributions
  • Image based rendering of faces
  • Natural expression and capture of motions
  • Only head turning with the most dominant image changes is interpolated from a set of initially captured views
  • Other global head motions are represented with a geometry model
Framework for project
  • Basic R&D Project co-finaneced by Government & EU Union
  • Some results incorporated in novel coding & transmission solutions
