Video-Modifying Program Transfers Human Facial Expressions in Real-Time

By: | October 25th, 2015


A new real-time expression transfer for facial reenactment program has been developed by researchers, and it does just what you think.

It can literally transfer facial expressions of one subject onto a live video of another subject’s face in real time, which is crazy to even think about.

A collaboration between researchers from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Max Planck Institute for Informatics, and Stanford University, they describe the program in the following way.

The novelty of our approach lies in the transfer and photorealistic re-rendering of facial deformations and detail into the target video in a way that the newly-synthesized expressions are virtually indistinguishable from a real video.
