3D Novel Face Model Based on Surface Stitching
3D face sample is an important data platform for model training, algorithm design. Subject to the constraint of data acquisition equipment the size of current 3D face databases are relatively small and insufficient. To solve this problem, this paper presents a modeling way for generating 3D novel samples based on surface stitching. First we use morphable model to build a global model. Then, we replace each patch of the global model based on surface stitching. We demonstrate that with appropriate choice of local models it is possible to reliably generate new realistic face samples.
