Face changing technology for videos
Summary:
A Korean SME specializing in computer graphics (CG) offers an innovative face changing technology for videos. With only one picture, the person's face can be applied to an actor's face in a video. And then, the person becomes a movie star. It looks natural as if the person's face was originally in the video. The technology can be used in online service such as video sharing platforms, entertainment or theme parks. The firm is seeking a partner for a licensing agreement.
Description:
Everybody dreams of being a movie star at least once in their life. However, it is not an easy thing to make it happen. Here is a technology that a Korean SME is offering to anyone who wants to experience being a movie star in a video with only one picture.

With the technology it became possible to change anybody's face in a video with any face the user wants. And the process only requires one face picture. For example, the user can become a lead character in a movie by changing the actor's face with his. Before the user changes the face, the video has to be pre-processed so that the new face can be integrated into the surrounding image seamlessly. Also the light effects and facial expressions will be properly reflected.

Only thing that the user has to do is just uploading one face picture. The rest of the process will be automatically done by the software. In the new video, the lengths and position of the shadows will change as the face turns just as they do in the original video, and the facial expression of the original face will also be replicated on the new face.

The firm has been researching digital human technologies including facial feature recognition. The technology is one of the results of that research. A few years ago this technology was introduced in Japan. And the firm produced a 20-minute drama with a famous Korean actor and actress in it. The reason for producing the 20-minute drama was to make the Japanese fans to experience the love story with their favorite actor. With only one face picture, Japanese fans could be in the drama and they could become one of the main characters. This was possible thanks to the innovative facial feature recognition technology, which could switch the main characters' face to the Japanese fans' face. It received a lot of attention from the media and was reported in news and entertainment programs. This software is applicable for virtual surgery, virtual makeup, and automatic avatar generation technologies.

With this technology, the firm is expecting to find a partner to apply this face changing technology to content businesses. For example, when a theme park plays a video clip such as short version of transformer, one of the spectators can be a leading actor in that short video clip and enjoy it. Like this, the firm wants to expand their business areas by finding a partner with a licensing agreement.
