Training separated yaw angles.

Post by tokafondo »

There are tools to separate the faces in different yaw angles, placed in different folders.

The more the bins setting, the more folders are created.

I would sort by yaw angle both for A and B, every folder with its own alignments file. And then I would train the same yaw angle folder, the one for A with the corresponding one for B. And I would repeat for every yaw angle folder that would match A and B until I would have all my faces trained.

Would it help for speed, quality, detail... any of these variables, to train those different folders, compared to train all in one folder?

Unlikely, it will probably just lead to poorly generalized results as yaw is not the only feature that you care about. What if the best match for the expression is in a different yaw set? You'd be starving the model of data it needed. Your best bet is to keep all the data together but properly cleaned following the extraction guide.
