excerpt from videopage, fun to alter persona :) ....

"We reconstruct a controllable model of a person from a large photo collection that captures his or her persona, i.e., physical appearance and behavior. The ability to operate on unstructured photo collections enables modeling a huge number of people, including celebrities and other well photographed people without requiring them to be scanned. Moreover, we show the ability to drive or puppeteer the captured person B using any other video of a different person A. In this scenario, B acts out the role of person A, but retains his/her own personality and character. Our system is based on a novel combination of 3D face reconstruction, tracking, alignment, and multi-texture modeling, applied to the puppeteering problem. We demonstrate convincing results on a large variety of celebrities derived from Internet imagery and video."

Where do you see this being most useful? Games?

Very interesting though.

The mouth is almost always under accentuated in CG human animation I've noticed.

I wonder if this is the sort of tech that was used on Philip Seymour Hoffman in the Hunger Games?
