This paper describes the representation, animation and data collection techniques that have been used to produce "realistic" computer generated half-tone animated sequences of a human face changing expression. [] Key Method Animation was accomplished using a cosine interpolation scheme to fill in the intermediate frames between expressions. This approach is good enough to produce realistic facial motion. The three-dimensional data used to describe the expressions of the face was obtained photogrammetrically…

3-D Facial Animation Using Image Samples
TLDR
A new method is presented here, combining 3-D computer graphics with texture mapping techniques to synthesise and animate facial images which are convincing enough to be comparable with real video images.
Modeling and Animating Realistic Faces from Images
TLDR
A new set of techniques for modeling and animating realistic faces from photographs and videos that allows the interactive recovery of a textured 3D face model and can be linearly combined to express a wide range of expressions.
The computer synthesis of expressive faces.
TLDR
This paper presents a methodology for the computer synthesis of realistic faces capable of expressive articulations that offers superior realism by utilizing physical modelling to emulate complex tissue deformations in response to coordinated facial muscle activity.
Distance fields applied to character animation
TLDR
It is shown that similar algorithms can be used for skin, clothing and facial animation, at interactive rates, with plausible dynamics for fairly detailed models at around 60fps on a PIII computer with Nvidia Gforce2 graphics.
An Interactive Facial Animation System
TLDR
The system is built on top of the facial animation system developed by Keith Waters which uses a muscle based face model to produce keyframe animations of a synthetic face model.
Computer Facial Animation: A Review
TLDR
This paper reviews several geometric-based modelling and data-driven animation techniques used in computer graphics and vision for facial animation and the main concept and problems for each technique are highlighted in the paper.
A Survey of Facial Modeling and Animation Techniques
TLDR
The theoretical approaches used in published work are summarized and their strengths, weaknesses, and relative performance are described and taxonomy groups the methods into classes that highlight their similarities and differences.
EasyFace: a realistic face modeling and facial animation authoring system
TLDR
A system called EasyFace is developed that constructs textured 3D face models from a single frontal face image with no user interaction and automatically generates a realistic 3D human head model which can be animated immediately from customized animation files.
Realistic 2D Facial Animation from One Image
TLDR
This work shows how facial animation with a variety of realistic expressions can be generated very efficiently, where not only main facial components but also pseudo-depth values obtained from their alpha mattes are utilized in this system.
Parameterized Facial Modelling and Animation
TLDR
The aim of this chapter is to give a comprehensive overview of current state-of-the-art parametric methods for realistic facial modelling and animation.
