Forget makeup, Disney Research uses a projector-based illumination to alter the appearance of human performers in real-time during performances. Using infrared illumination, an optically and computationally aligned high-speed camera detects facial orientation as well as expression, while the estimated expression blend-shapes are mapped onto a lower dimensional space. The facial motion and non-rigid deformation are then estimated, smoothed and predicted through adaptive Kalman filtering. Last, but not least, the desired appearance is generated interpolating pre-computated offset textures according to time, global position, and expression.
