Realistic 3D Facial Animation
(c) CAIG Lab, NCTU
From the aspect of facial animation, motion capture is a convincing
approach for data acquisition. Current facial motion capture
devices can only track markers or feature points on a face. They are
difficult to handle facial details, such as wrinkles or dimples. In
this project, we plan to improve facial detail capture method. After analyzing the correlations between
feature points and facial details, a feature-point-driven facial motion
model with detail expressions can improve the drawback
of current performance-driven facial animation.
