Stanford Team Develops Software Capable of Digitally Transferring One Person’s Facial Expressions to Another’s Face

Real Time Expression Transfer

A team at Stanford University in collaboration with University of Erlangen-Nuremberg and the Max Planck Institute for Informatics has developed “Real-time Expression Transfer for Facial Reenactment” software capable of digitally transferring one person’s facial expressions to another person’s face, essentially turning that person into a digital puppet.

The demonstration video is incredible to watch as the software, which makes use of consumer-level computers and Microsoft Kinect cameras, apply one actor’s facial movements to the other person.
