Anyone who isn't familiar with what a Deepfake is, you can check
out this Subreddit.
I would attempt it, but I'm fairly certain my home system is not
technically proficient or powerful enough to perform the operations
needed to create these videos. But if anyone else has a more
advanced/powerful computer, I would really be interested to see
what you could get up to.
There's so much potential for face/head/voice swaps. I would really
be curious to see some people here make the attempt.

I seem to be one of the very few people interested in it for
"PG"-rated purposes. I'm actually awaiting some stuff to upgrade my
PC--I've done a few experiments, but results are fairly poor due to
hardware. But once I get the new stuff....|
Anyways---here is a family-friendly, great example of the things
that can be done:

I tried TF movie character with emma watson.
Quality is so bad.

I agree with the assessment that we should have some more PG-rated
Deepfakes as well. People on Reddit seem exclusively interested in
utilizing Deepfakes for use in porn. I'm more interested in movie
clips and celebrity interviews, etc.

Exactly, those are main two things----like, take a movie clip and
"cast another actress in the role". Or like for an
interview---maybe swap the interviewer and interviewee.|

I am attempting to do this now. Over the years I have done a number
of photomanipulations of my own face as if it were female:
different angles, different expressions, different poses, and
morphed halfway with many different female faces. Ideally it will
produce a recognizable amalgam of my face with female features. I
do not know whether it will work because a) I only have a hundred
or so images of me, b) they may not be similar enough to make a
good model, and c) my video card barely meets minimum specs. If it
doesn't work, or if the quality is low, I may be able to justify a
computer upgrade during the summer after I get out of grad school
and try again.|

Well Reddit just banned the /r/deepfakes subreddit, on the grounds

Could the program be used for like putting an actress face from
like teen wolf that’s in werewolf makeup onto a porn Star ? How
many images are needed?|
, 19 months, post #11 |
The official recommendation is "hundreds," which is what you can
get in 8-10 seconds of full-motion 24 fps video. In my very limited
experience watching the training sequences progress, the reason you
need that many is so you have as much variety of angles and
expressions in your target as you do in your overlay. In other
words, if the target's face is moving all around, talking,
blinking, seen in profile, looking up and down, then you're going
to want enough images in your overlay to roughly match that
variety. On the other hand, if your target has only one expression
(eg, smiling) or only seen from one side (eg, the front) then your
overlay pictures can be mostly smiling from the front too.|
Would it work for an actor in heavy prosthetic makeup? I don't
know. Perhaps. It depends how well the two faces line up. It might
take forever, or it might not work at all, if starting and ending
images are too dissimilar.

For prosthetics---the "replacement" face will not have them--that
may or may not be your goal. The AI is remarkably good at
"stripping away" things when replacing---extreme eye makeup, even
mustaches. But it also means it can handle "extreme" situations
, 19 months, post #13 |
Wait, think I got that backwards---you wanted the girl in werewolf
makeup, to be the face that is replacing the original one in the
video? Then it should work fine, keeping the makeup.|
, 19 months, post #14 |
Yea ^ so that could be done with like 10 pics or so then?|
, 19 months, post #15 |
10? Highly unlikely, unless the clip used only has the woman with
almost zero variation in facial expression and angle/positioning of
head throughout the scene, and the 10 werewolf girl pics matched
that almost perfectly.|
, 19 months, post #16 |
I should also mention that the first step is automated facial
recognition. If the app can't recognize either face as human, it's
not going to know how to match it. Facial recognition technology is
based on taking a directional histogram of a simplified form of the
image: basically, sensing where the picture is getting lighter and
getting darker. If it matches a certain basic configuration, the
algorithm says a face is present. Whether this works on a werewolf
face depends, I suppose, on how extreme this makeup job is and what
camera angles you're using. A wolf face from the front might match
as human. From the side, maybe not. A spotted Dalmatian dog with
lots of extraneous light and dark spots? A cow face with the eyes
toward the outside? Maybe not at all.|

The actual technical part/guide for how to use it, r/fakeapp, is
still up. After that, dpfak.org seems to have about the best info,
compiled from Reddit before the ban. Most all other places that
splintered off are nothing but porn, and porn requests.|

r/FaceApp just got banned. Dpfak.org doesn’t work. Where has the
migration of deepfakes gone too?|
