SuchDemo version of “Vid 2 Vid Cameo”Is open to the public, so let’s use it right away. When you access the demo version, it looks like this.
Eight sample images are prepared, so when I clicked “Image 1” as a trial, a photo of a man’s face was displayed.
First, move the “pitch” slide bar to the right and then press the “Rotate” button. Then the man in the photo raised his face.
Next, I moved the “yaw (left and right)” slide bar to the right and pressed the “Rotate” button in the same way, and the man who was facing right turned his face to the front.
It is also possible to bend the neck with “roll”. Although the neck and shoulders are no longer connected, the background objects that can be seen by changing the posture are also synthesized without any discomfort, which is a fairly natural result.
In addition, you can freely change not only the orientation of your face but also your line of sight.
To try out your favorite photo, click Select File, select any photo, and click Open> Upload.
Then drag on the face photo to enclose the face in a yellow frame.
After that, you can freely change the angle of the face and the direction of the line of sight by the same operation as above.
