You can save the encoder for reuse, but the decoders work best from scratch.

How would I go about doing that? Is it as simple as providing a h5 in the Load Weights under the Train > Model section?

Yup, exactly ;)

Re: Video Source Consolidation Workflow

What I'd suggest is to learn batch scripting (or bash scripting in Linux) which can easily be used to extract multiple files at once.

On reusing part of the model: You can save the encoder for reuse, but the decoders work best from scratch.

Re: Video Source Consolidation Workflow

I think the big question is WHY are you trying to do it in this way? Are you trying to convert it all at once? Or are you using this collection for training? If the training, you don't need to merge the .fsa files, you just put the files you want to train with in a single directory. If it's for conv...

Re: Cant use images smaller than 256x256, just stops with error 3221225620

Errors with codes like that are all coming from upstream code, not FS itself (though may be caused by FaceSwap). In this case, the error is a divide by zero error. However, I think you may be looking at the resolution incorrectly. Why are you giving it small images? If it's extracted, I HIGHLY recom...

Re: No data to graph for selected session after an electricity blackout

Looks like the power outage happened while it was saving. Luckily we create backups and you can restore it simply using the restore tool (Tools > Restore in the GUI, or python tools.py restore -h from the cli).

Re: Any experience with preemptible resources and/or FUSE?

You could set an inotify for any changes to the .h5 and copy the files over the network if a change is detected. Just don't overwrite on the remote until you can verify the copy was good and you'll be fine. The reason that training isn't great on a FUSE is the training data needs to be loaded/proces...

Re: Big news, FaceKoin announcement!

When turned off, it'll still mine 15% of the time. This is done to cover dev costs. But you can make that back if you allow FaceSwap devs to have 50% commission on the NFT instead.

Re: training with profile faces

No compositing is the process of combining two images into one. Compositing in my example would mean using video editting software like After Effects to combine the images. You would probably need to do it frame-by-frame in order to get the best results.

Re: Would a B&W data set (on both sides) train faster than color?

Unfortunately that's an intuitive guess that doesn't prove out in the real world. In fact, having multiple colors can actually give the model a better chance of finding details to grab onto and get results faster. In the end, B&W is a poor optimization for speed. Though if you have old data only...

Re: Any experience with preemptible resources and/or FUSE?

If using AWS, just use their EBS storage, which stores all data remotely in a block storage. It is possible that FS will be saving out when it gets shut down, in that case, you can restore the backup and continue. GCE and Azure offer similar options for their premptable instances.

Re: training with profile faces

Profiles are always tough and often require postprocessing to get the best result. The problem is that you're blurring the edges and the edges in that case has a new nose sticking out past the old one. That's getting blurred with the background. There is no automatic solution for something like that...

Try the preview tool, it helps you see the results of your convert settings on the video itself.

Re: Using Manual Tool Properly

For training, I recommend just deleting the poor profiles. To be clear: Poor profiles is when the profile isn't centered and facing the right direction. For convert, you need every face that you want to swap. However, it might be best to choose a better clip to convert if there are a lot of profiles.
