In the paper, we present a framework of speech driven face animation system with expressions. It systematically addresses audio-visual data acquisition, expressive trajectory analysis and audio-visual mapping. Based on this framework, we learn the correlation between neutral facial deformation and expressive facial deformation with Gaussian Mixture Model (GMM). A hierarchical structure is proposed to map the acoustic parameters to lip FAPs. Then the synthesized neutral FAP streams will be… CONTINUE READING
