A new tool for creating deepfakes.
Take a look at this fascinating motion transfer framework by Jian Zhao and Hui Zhang. The thin-plate spline motion model allows changing the person's face or even the whole body in animation. The method can also animate other objects, including pixel animations.
To generate realistic, high-quality images, the authors use multi-resolution occlusion masks and additional auxiliary loss functions.
The paper trains the model for 100 epochs for a fair comparison, and it looks really impressive.
