Data-Driven Facial Animation Based on Feature Points Data-Driven Facial Animation Based on Feature Points Presentation Transcript

  • Data-Driven Facial Animation Based on Feature Points Pamela Fox
  • Goal of Project
    • Develop a system for generating facial animation of any given 2-d or 3-d model given novel text or speech input, which is both realistic and realtime.
  • Step 1: Capture data
    • For realism, motion capture points of a human speaking must be captured that encompass the entire phonetic alphabet and facial gestures and expressions.
  • Step 2: Choose feature points from mocap data
    • A set of points from mocap data must be selected for use as the “feature points.”
    • Only the motion of feature points is needed for animating a model.
  • Step 3: Select same feature points on model
    • User must tell the program what points on the model correspond to the mocap’s selected points.
  • Step 4: Compute FP regions/weights
    • Program searches out from each feature points, computing weights for each vertex in surrounding neighborhood until weight close to 0.
  • Step 5: Animate the model
    • Given information about vector movement of motion capture points, each feature point is moved and then neighbors are moved according to weights.
