Adobe Technical Paper Genius

August 13, 2017, 16:08 PM


Adobe delivered one of the most impressive papers at this year's SIGGRAPH technical papers. The essence of the paper is to build on previous research to provide Stylized Facial Animations based off an arbitrary example style, such as a painting. This paper is the basis of Jakub Fišer PhD at the Czech Technical University in Prague. This work is so impressive, it seems almost like magic, but in reality their clever solution takes advantage of some special aspects of faces, some core Adobe Photoshop tech and the previously published research that the team has been working on for some time.

Still, we bank on the fact that our simulation is a reasonably decent one. If it wasn’t, wouldn’t evolution have weeded us out by now? The true reality might be forever beyond our reach, but surely our senses give us at least an inkling of what it’s really like.
