With our methods, we can match faces and expressions with very high accuracy. This allows to transfer realistic expression patterns, e.g. for animation of a static face scan, as can be seen in the video below.
We have established our new 3D Facial Expression Morphable Model (FEx-MM). The related paper is accepted for publication at FG2018. Using this model and some spare time, we have rendered the image shown above in Cycles/Blender.
