Markerless 3D Face Motion Capturing

Markerless 3D Face Motion Capturing System has been developed for the reconstruction and manipulation of
real-time facial animation performance. Using a highly detailed polygon mesh and an intuitive markup annotation
tool developed by CERTH, our system is able to track delicate motion of the actor’s face in real time and generate
mesh geometry and texture data for the reconstruction of a look-alike 3D model. This model is rendered in real
time using physically based shading, advanced normal and tone mapping techniques to increase realism, and is
subject to modifications applied as morph targets, that allow instant manipulation of the rendered mesh and the
generation of exaggerated caricature characters.
