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?
If you're training with a mask or using Warp to Landmarks, then you need an alignments file, as stated here:

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 get the basics of the Manual tool, so I haven't actually looked into them yet. I'll postpone further comments on this question until I do.

The extraction procedure is working on CPU or GPU? It is kind of slow, when I ran it on AMD 3950x, and CPU was all FULL.

Dear facewap:

Thanks to facewap for providing such a magical application, when I learned to extract according to the guide, I found that there are some abnormal situations, I don't know if other friends have encountered:

1. Extract the face in the video, the face in several frames of the picture is rotated at an angle, which will cause the face position to be misaligned in the subsequent training;

2. Among the extracted results, there are still pictures that are not faces. Can I directly delete them manually, and then use the “Clean the Alignments File” in the guide to process?

I would like to consult how to solve this situation.


       Thanks ~ ···

Yes.

The slightly misaligned faces can be fixed with the manual alignments tool.
