This is a technical demo for face substitution technique. The application works in real time and it's developed using the opensource framework for creative coding openFrameworks: openFrameworks.cc
Most of the "magic" happens thanks to Jason Saragih's c++ library for face tracking web.mac.com/ jsaragih/ FaceTracker/ FaceTracker.html. The face tracking library returns a mesh that matches the contour of the eyes, nose, mouth and other facial features.
That way the mesh obtained from a photo is matched to my own face in the video. Applying some color interpolation algorithms from Kevin Atkinson's image clone code: methodart.blogspot.com/ gives it the blending effect that can be seen in the final footage.
The definition of transmedia storytelling and 3 rules to make it better. Most of you know how we believe at Toast that transmedia storytelling, by definition, is synonymous with modern media consumption.

We are no strangers to the benefits of storytelling in content marketing. Knowing that audiences are more likely to remember (and share) stories that connect in an emotional way has allowed marketers to develop truly unique content. But storytelling is an art that requires finesse, integrity and a touch of humility, and there is possibly no greater storyteller than filmmaker Steven Spielberg.
With more than 30 films, seven Academy Award nominations and three wins, Spielberg has the...
Previs. You may or may not have heard of it. If you have, you may have heard conflicting or more often muddled definitions. Many assumptions have developed around this often misunderstood word. Join Gare Cline, Previsualization Storyboard Artist, in this series of articles as he defines what previs is and isn't, what it can do for you, why you should use it, and how it works.
Adam invited animator Marty Cooper to the Cave to geek out about traditional hand-drawn cel animation and Marty's creative augmented reality cartoons. Using overhead projector transparency sheets and a stop-motion app, Marty lets loose one of his creations in the shop!.
Hello World! Processing is a documentary on creative coding that explores the role that ideas such as process, experimentation and algorithm play in this creative field featuring artists, designers and code enthusiasts. Based on a series of interviews to some of the leading figures of the Processing open programming platform community, the documentary is built itself as a continuous stream of archived references, projects and concepts shared by this community.
It is the first chapter of a documentary series on three programming languages -Processing, Open Frameworks y Pure data- that have increased the role of coding in the practice of artists, designers and creators around the world.
The series explores the creative possibilities expanded by these open source tools and the importance of their growing online communities.
If you work as a 3D artist and modeller then at some point you'll probably be asked to make a 3D 'something' for someone. The question then becomes "how much should I charge for 3D modeling"?; it's a tough one to answer. This article, updated for 2010, passes along some thoughts and considerations to help you work out baseline costs, comparisons, rates and the potential income.
We take that to mean that it's more like a floating 3D movie, rather than a virtual object you can study from any angle. Since they're seeking a patent, Helson and Jackets are coy about exactly how it works, but say that there's ...
We live in a world of unseeable beauty, so subtle and delicate that it is imperceptible to the human eye. To bring this invisible world to light, filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg bends the boundaries of time and space with high-speed cameras, time lapses and microscopes. At TED2014, he shares highlights from his latest project, a 3D film titled "Mysteries of the Unseen World," which slows down, speeds up, and magnifies the astonishing wonders of nature.
