Disney Facial Recognition

Disney Research has developed the first real-time high-fidelity facial capture method to enhance a global real-time face tracker, which provides a low-resolution face mesh, with local regressors that add in medium-scale details, such as expression wrinkles. The team discovered that although wrinkles appear in different scales and at different locations on the face, they are locally very self-similar and their visual appearance is a direct consequence of their local shape. Therefore in order to train local regressors from high-resolution capture data, they proposed an automatic way to detect and align the local patches required to train the regressors and run them efficiently in real-time.
