Re: Tools > Alignments > Manual not showing faces

That frame (and subsequent frames where nothing appears) has no alignments.
You're either using the wrong alignments file, wrong source or the alignments have been removed.

Re: Flipped face..

I've given up trying to get decent results on anything where both eyes (landmarks) are not visible for just this reason. No matter how many different images of sideways you have, you cannot train out the randomised values for the missing landmarks in both training and swap. The resultant swap is alw...

Re: Training Villain

The more you train the less the return, especially once over a few thousand It's x EG;s. It's not linear, so training for another 25% of time doesn't gve you a 25% better swap. As you summized, learning reduces the more you train. I've done experiments at 450k, 650k and 1 million and the gain in swa...

Re: So I got probably a stupid question

I think kruszkush is expecting there to be a repository or database of pre-trained models that can just be tapped in to - like Getty Images.

Re: The recovered images are quite blurred

I typically run Realface or Villain and 300K iterations is generally minimum I do, even for a simple swap. I've run one particularly difficult swap, due to lots of face movements, lighting changes and size changes, up to 1million ! If the face to swap is static. like a newsreader, you can get away w...

Re: What is the size of the GPU needed to train the Villain model?

FYI

Windows, 32Gb
4 batch size with single GTX1070ti (8GB)
8 batch size with 2 x 1070ti's in SLI. (16GB)

Takes a long time !

Re: Way to notify training failure?

You could run Tight VNC service (remote access) on the training machine and the Ripple remote version on your smart phone,. That way you can monitor, restart, and even change parameters such as batch size remotely. Tight VNC/Ripple works best if you have a static IP, just in case of a IP reset cause...

Re: I have a conversion problem

You don't know what GPU he has. Spend a few grand such on a GPU such as a NVidia TItan RTX with many cores and huge memory and then maybe you can do it in a few days. I have 2 1070ti's in SLI and can, for example, run Dfaker at 128 batch size (90 EG/s) quite easily but it still takes about a hundred...

Re: training sets and inputs

FYI - I've tried all greyscale images as one of the faces for training, result was poor (color wise and sharpness wise) swapping on a color video at 250k iters, original model. B&W images were also of poor quality due to being extracted from a film from the 1930's.

Re: Default Batch Size for each trainer?

Batch size per training model depends on the amount of VRAM you have on your GPU(s). For example, 16GB and you can run original at the maximum 256, Dfaker at 128 and Realface at 24 and so on.
To optimise the batch size for your card(s), see:

Re: I have a conversion problem

With a 1050Ti (4Gb VRAM) and maximum batch size on training and the quality you want, you're better off going on holiday for a week or two leaving the training running!

Re: I have a conversion problem

42k Iters is low, more like up to 10 times that number needed. If you have a 1080Ti and using "orginal" Trainer you should be able to increase Batch size to about 180 or even 200 (when running no other graphics programe), which will speed things up quite a bit !

Same trained model, different A face video. There are some "half face" anomolies but I haven't bothered editing these out or trying to adjust alignments as the reason behind the example was just to show that different "A face" videos can be swapped using the same A / B trained Model.

If it keeps happening it could possibly point to an instability in your power supply or wattage of the PSU is not up to the task ?.

Re: Manually Fixing for Converting Stage

My two cents, after playing about for a few months, Start with your experiments with "face on" videos and then learn the limitations of what the alignment alogrithms can do. Really 90 degree side on's are unlikely to ever be properly aligned and not even possible to manually "click to align". Is it ...
