Live Pic is an algorithm in the domain of Image and Video Processing for processing facial expressions in images and videos. The algorithm is targeting social media as well as industrial environment such as Film Industry. The purpose of this algorithm is to make a new platform where people play with their images and videos by swapping facial expressions and share them on social media or save them. The core functionality of the algorithm is to extract expressions from a face in an image and to apply those expressions on the face in a video so the person in the video give similar expressions as the person exists in image.
People can place their facial expressions from an image to a video in which an actor/actress or anybody is talking. The user can then analyze how much his expressions matches with the person talking in the video. User can also place expressions of the person which is dead to analyze how he/she would be looking while talking. The algorithm will also empower the user to change a little bit the position of facial parts such as, if somebody has taken an image and the eyes are a little bit close, the algorithm will help him to open is eyes a little bit.
In the industrial environment, the proposed algorithm will help newbie actors/actress to place his/her facial expressions to a professional actors face while practicing. This will help them judge the difference between their expressions and the expressions of a professional actor, instead of watching the video or the person again and again and practicing him, as this is a really time consuming and may be annoying thing. The newbie actor can then improve his expressions by judging himself on one video as many times as he wants. This algorithm is a next wave in Image and Video Processing world as there is no such algorithm exists except CGI while people are yet unfamiliar with CGI and this is the technique used in Film Industry. People do not know how to use it or they do not know about CGI technique.
