Deep Spatial Transformation for Pose-Guided Person Image Generation and Animation

27 Aug 2020  ·  Yurui Ren, Ge Li, Shan Liu, Thomas H. Li ·

Pose-guided person image generation and animation aim to transform a source person image to target poses. These tasks require spatial manipulation of source data... However, Convolutional Neural Networks are limited by the lack of ability to spatially transform the inputs. In this paper, we propose a differentiable global-flow local-attention framework to reassemble the inputs at the feature level. This framework first estimates global flow fields between sources and targets. Then, corresponding local source feature patches are sampled with content-aware local attention coefficients. We show that our framework can spatially transform the inputs in an efficient manner. Meanwhile, we further model the temporal consistency for the person image animation task to generate coherent videos. The experiment results of both image generation and animation tasks demonstrate the superiority of our model. Besides, additional results of novel view synthesis and face image animation show that our model is applicable to other tasks requiring spatial transformation. The source code of our project is available at https://github.com/RenYurui/Global-Flow-Local-Attention. read more
