Impressive: Real-Time Face Capture And Reenactment

March 23, 2016

This is a video of Face2Face, a program developed to add the real-time facial expressions of an actor to the face of someone else. The actor input video is captured via a standard webcam, and the results are surprisingly accurate. Obviously, this will be the basis of all future political smear campaigns. Plus, as Hedonistica pointed out, celebrity sex videos. The future is looking bright.

Hit the jump for the video. Also, inb4 'There's no need to fake anything Donald Trump says'.

Thanks to Josh, who agrees what a time it is to be alive.

    time to invent make-up that prevent face tracking or find a new way to deliver speeches

  • I do agree it is a time to be alive!

    So when are we going to see a "Special Edition" of Forrest Gump using this technology? Those modified vintage footage sequences have NOT aged well...

  • The_Wretched

    So pretty much anyone in a video cap can be faked to be saying pretty much anything. I can't begin to imagine what this might do for the pron industry.

    I'm curious as to why this was invented if only for evil. I can't think of a single non-evil use for this at all.

    Match the lips when translating a movie ?

  • Billy Avenue

    well you sir have found the ONLY non-evil use for this tech. good job.

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    That's a really good idea. You could make amazingly good dubbed movies that way.

  • Emmitt Morgans

    If this starts being used regularly for such purposes, I have a feeling we're going to see a lot of movies that look like an old Conan O'Brien fake celebrity interview sketch.

  • Hazakabammer

    Yep. None at all.

  • Nico Horst

    I don't know what to believe anymore....

  • Tim Buchanan

    This couldn't possibly ever be abused!

  • Mr.4maldehyde

    Uncanny. And by that I mean straight out of Uncanny Valley.
