Animation of Synthetic Faces in MPEG-4

  title={Animation of Synthetic Faces in MPEG-4},
  author={J{\"o}rn Ostermann},
MPEG-4 is the first international standard that standardizes true multimedia communication – including natural and synthetic audio, natural and synthetic video, as well as 3D graphics. Integrated into this standard is the capability to define and animate virtual humans consisting of synthetic heads and bodies. For the head, more than 70 model-independent animation parameters defining low-level actions like move left mouth corner up to high-level parameters like facial expressions and visemes… CONTINUE READING
