Face Sample Synthesis
Face Sample Synthesis denotes the process of generating the image of a human face by a computer program. The input of this process is a set of parameters that describes (1) the position from which the face is viewed, (2) the illumination environment around the face, (3) the identity of the person, and (4) the expression of the person. Other parameters may also be used such as the age of the person, parameters describing the makeup, etc. The output is an image of a human face.
Face Sample Synthesis denotes the process of generating the image of a human face by a computer program. Optimally, this image should be realistic and virtually indistinguishable from a photography of a live scene. Additionally, the computer program should be generic: able to synthesize the face of any individual, viewed from any pose and illuminated by any arbitrarily complex environment. The objective of this article is...
