Re: CUDA driver version is insufficient for CUDA runtime version

gpu_driver: 390.143

That is definitely not the latest GPU driver for your GPU. You need to find a more up-to-date driver. I recommend checking at nvidia.com if your distro doesn't have any newer drivers.

Re: Phaze-A - 256px Demo

When using legacy faces, the face is extracted from the full image at that percentage then scaled to for the model. In the case of a 256x face at 100% coverage, then the while 256x256 image would be scaled and used to train. If you're using a 256x256 model with less than 100% coverage you may need h...

Re: Dual GPU: 3090 FE Installed, any use of keeping 2080 Ti as Dual?

I would not recommend mixing. You'll be limited by the speed, ram, and featureset of the worst card option. In general you'll be better served by using the extra GPU on a separate system.

Re: Can I install and use Faceswap on Nvidia Jetson?

Jetson Nano wont be feasible. It simply doesn't have much ram at 2 or 4gb depending on version. With a TX1 or TX2 it's possible, but you'll have to either use a much older version or modify it to remove the pynvml checks. Unfortunately it wont be an easy solution to run on any Jetsons without modifi...

Re: Phaze-A - 256px Demo

Quick question @torzdf - Did you use "no warp" at the end of training for this video? Or was it simply a run of 2M iterations with the StoJo preset model? Torzdf has said in the past that he regularly turns off warp for the last part of training. I would guess that he did the same here. Y...

System ram is not really critical importance. OOMs apply to vram and not to system ram.

Re: Putting single photo B face on model?

One image just isn't how FS works. It will never get unblurry with a single image. I'd suggest if you want to do that go check out First Order Model or "one-shot" solutions.

Re: What is most important in lighting data? Shadows? Resolution?

Loss is a poor measure, especially if you control one side of the data. I'd say that the most important thing is Variety. Variety is key because the model can learn all the different types of lighting itself. I'd suggest trying to move a light across the face to get different angles. Getting some fi...

Re: How much memory for 256 resolution Dfaker?

Unfortunately it's not an easy question to answer. It depends on FAR too many variables. You can try it (at a low batch size) and see if it'll work for you. But everything from your OS, to your driver version, to your web browser can effect the amount of vram it takes to train.

Re: Problem with new FS version, downgrade

Model collapses can happen anytime and are COMPLETLEY unrelated to the alignments. In fact, alignments are not ever fed into the model itself, and are only used to store masks and the like. Downgrade is possible, but your data will almost definitely need to be re-extracted and created. To do it you'...

Mask out anything that you don't want to swap in. You might want to check out the new Bisenet masker. It gives you more options and accuracy.

Unfortunately a model can collapse at any time. I'd suggest trying again, and if you still have problems, try reducing your Learning Rate.

You can copy/paste the error messages when they show. That said I think your problem is a corrupt model file. Try the restore tool.

Re: Doubts about the use of google colab

We have no official notebook for Colab and cannot provide assurances that it isn't doing anything malicious (same as Google themselves, hence that warning).

If you're worried you can audit the notebook code yourself or follow a guide for the official version on a bare server.

Quality means noise/variety more than high resolution. You don't want a whole bunch of low bitrate youtube videos since the compression artifacts lead to visible face distortion. You don't have to get everything from 4k Blu-rays but you want as good of quality as possible in order to minimize the is...
