FaceCook: Face Generation Based on Linear Scaling Factors

8 Sep 2021  ·  Tianren Wang, Can Peng, Teng Zhang, Brian Lovell ·

With the excellent disentanglement properties of state-of-the-art generative models, image editing has been the dominant approach to control the attributes of synthesised face images. However, these edited results often suffer from artifacts or incorrect feature rendering, especially when there is a large discrepancy between the image to be edited and the desired feature set. Therefore, we propose a new approach to mapping the latent vectors of the generative model to the scaling factors through solving a set of multivariate linear equations. The coefficients of the equations are the eigenvectors of the weight parameters of the pre-trained model, which form the basis of a hyper coordinate system. The qualitative and quantitative results both show that the proposed method outperforms the baseline in terms of image diversity. In addition, the method is much more time-efficient because you can obtain synthesised images with desirable features directly from the latent vectors, rather than the former process of editing randomly generated images requiring many processing steps.
