  journal={IEEE Trans. Pattern Anal. Mach. Intell.},
This paper addresses the issue of 3-D motion estimation in model-based facial image coding. A new approach to estimating the motion of the head and the facial expressions is presented and has the following characteristics: 1) An affine nonrigid motion model is set up. The specific knowledge about facial shape and facial expression is formulated by this model in the form of parameters. This affine motion model is especially suitable to such a type of nonrigid motion as facial expressions. 2… CONTINUE READING
