Manual Alignments Tool issues

Post by MaCaWi »

I'm seeing some weird behavior in the Manual alignment tool and I'm not sure if it is a bug, or if I am just misinterpreting things. I've been playing around with Faceswap for a few days, mostly just following the main guides from this forum.

As you can see in the video, selecting an image seems to throw off the mask. Note the preview before I select an image, and the resulting display. Using the "next frame" functions seems to throw everything off as well.

Thanks for any advice!

The input to the manual tool should be frames or a video, not a faces folder.

I figured I was missing something simple... that did the trick.

Appreciate the help!

Using Manual Tool with folder of images as source

Post by F_Again »

Hi
I've been using the manual tool with pretty good success on video based sources. However, I have a bunch of additional images in png format that I'm also trying to create alignments for for later training.

The Extract and Sort process go just fine. When I load the output into the manual tool, I get some wonky behavior. As noted in another thread, the alignments are all shifted off the extracted images each time I advance through the images. And when I go to extract the final faces based on the redone alignments, I get the error below.

Reading the threads, it seems like the manual tool really wants the extraction process to use video, not source images. Is that true? DId I miss a way to fix alignments if the source is a folder of distinct photos? Or am I being a noob and missing something obvious?

Any help appreciated.

You can use images, but don't give it the folder of extracted faces, you need to give it the original folder you extracted from.
