Using facial feature extraction to enhance the creation of 3D human models

Boyle, Eamonn, Uscilowski, Bartlomiej, Molloy, Derek and Murphy, Noel (2005) Using facial feature extraction to enhance the creation of 3D human models. In: WIAMIS 2005 - 6th International Workshop on Image Analysis for Multimedia Interactive Services, 13-15 April 2005, Montreux, Switzerland.

The creation of personalised 3D characters has evolved to provide a high degree of realism in both appearance and animation. Further to the creation of generic characters the capabilities exist to create a personalised character from images of an individual. This provides the possibility of immersing an individual into a virtual world. Feature detection, particularly on the face, can be used to greatly enhance the realism of the model. To address this innovative contour based templates are used to extract an individual from four orthogonal views providing localisation of the face. Then adaptive facial feature extraction from multiple views is used to enhance the realism of the model.
