    Face Animation by Real Time Feature Tracking



    Tracking limited facial features in video and reproducing its expression remotely could save transmission bandwidth significantly, however, a number of issues need to be accounted including the real time face feature tracking under a variety of imaging conditions, and the real time face modelling and animation using limited number of feature parameters. Thus we developed a noval system to create face animation with twenty-two tracked features.
