Re: maximizing input quality

We don't use JPG. We use PNG which is lossless. I somehow failed to notice it was PNG instead of JPG. I also didn't know PNG was lossless - I though it supported lossy compression but was better at it - and less legally unencumbered. Good to know, that eliminates any concern about loss during the e...

Re: manual tool - purpose of third window?

I wouldn't bother, It's being replaced with something much better, Any guess when that'll be released? If it's really soon (days or weeks), it would make sense for me to avoid investing any more time practicing with and building on the existing tool and spend my time on other factors until the new ...

maximizing input quality

Let's say you want to use a face from a film, with maximum quality. The highest quality is whatever the scene was originally record on - either a film negative, or some kind of raw DV tape. From there, the post-production process will end up re-encoding (and compressing) that original asset multiple...

Re: manual tool - purpose of third window?

Manual tool is being reworked. Nice. I love progress. Hold down the middle mouse button in the box and drag up/down to adjust the box height and left and right to adjust the box width. Ok, with that understanding a little patience, I got that to work. I find it unintuitive - especially when the res...

Faceswap GUI : A Textual Representation

I don't know if this will be useful to anyone else, but I decided to scratch an OCD itch and create a textual representation of the GUI for convenient referencing under certain circumstances: https://gist.github.com/odigity/acdb7cad5fb04d199bf9490e256ecbd0 (Posting here because there's no forum for ...

Re: [Guide] Extraction - A Workflow

If you're training with a mask or using Warp to Landmarks, then you need an alignments file, as stated here: https://forum.faceswap.dev/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=27#why Great, that helps. I'm just getting into learning the Manual tool now, and made a decision to figure out masks and landmarks *after* I g...

Re: manual tool - purpose of third window?

Arg. Problem #4. In the meantime, decided to try converting the video using the work I'd already completed in the current version of my alignments file, to see how close I am. Total fail. Almost every frame errored with something like: 02/12/2020 12:59:35 ERROR Failed to convert image: 'test_000130....

Re: [Guide] Extraction - A Workflow

In a broad sense, a clean set of images means keeping the extracted faces you want to swap, deleting unwanted faces extracted from the video clip and also deleting any extracted objects falsely identified as faces. Was that in response to me? Not trying to be rude, but genuinely confused because it...

Re: manual tool - purpose of third window?

Arg. Problem #3: I just finished manually adjusting the alignment (or deleting the frame) across 900 frames (30s of video) and saved them. I then ran Extract to see the results as a set of images, and there's where I found surprises. For example, when I'm in the Manual tool, if I'm looking at frame ...

Re: manual tool - purpose of third window?

Still working on my first video (900 frames), realigned most of them manually already, but there are about a dozen that for some reason I can't make work. Where ever on the face I click, the bounding box ends up being much smaller than I need. In 98% of cases I click around the mouth/nose area and i...

manual tool - purpose of third window?

Finally trying out the GUI in order to learn how to improve alignments for conversion, based on the guide in this subforum. I figured out how to navigate, adjust bounding boxes, and save, which is great - but I'm confused about the purpose of the third window. What I mean is, when I run the manual t...

I'm confused: What's the purpose of merging alignment files when merging training sets given that alignment files aren't actually used during training?

Re: tattoo removal? GANs?

faceswap(real1,real2) = identity swapping
faceswap(real1,fake1) = ethical identity hiding

Imagine being able to vlog or stream about sensitive political topics with the full range of human facial expressions but without showing your face.

As to your second, yes, absolutely :) Cool. I just finished chapter 3 of Deep Learning Illustrated by Jon Krohn, which introduced me to GANs, which blew my mind. In terms of what's relevant to faceswapping, the possibility of being able to autogenerate completely original faces free of legal and et...

tattoo removal? GANs?

Has anyone attempted to use deep learning for tattoo removal? And if so, has anyone packaged that tech up in a convenient tool like faceswap?

Also, is this an appropriate forum to discuss creating original faces with generative antagonistic networks?

Re: CUDA book recommendation?

You're not going to get a whole lot more out of faceswap by reading books. You might be underestimating my ignorance. I don't even know the difference between CUDA, Keras, and TensorFlow. I just know they're relevant things. That said, if you're interested in AI/ML books in general, I highly recomm...

Can anyone recommend a good book for someone who's completely new to CUDA to get up to speed on the concepts, for practical benefit - such as understanding how to better operate faceswap?

Wow. It's literally ten times faster that what I got used to last week.
