Project: 3D face reconstruction
Input: 2D frontal face Image Output: 3D face Reconstruction and expression simulation Platform: Matlab or Opencv cpp.
I found out after study that 3D Morphable Models (3DMM) algorithm is a good starting point for my project. But I don't have the Basel Face Model (3D face Database) to implement the algorithm. However, I have downloaded GavabDB from http://gavab.escet.urjc.es/recursos_en.html. Can I develop 3DMM using the GavabDB for 3D face reconstruction from frontal image? After reading the dataset description doc, I observed that Gavab doesn't provide Texture data of the 3D scans; is texture data compulsory?
Does the output quality depend on the 3D database used for modeling?
