Images formed by a human face change with viewpoint. A new technique is described for synthesizing images of faces from new viewpoints, when only a single 2D image is available. A novel 2D image of a face can be computed without explicitly computing the 3D structure of the head. The technique draws on a single generic 3D model of a human head and on prior knowledge of faces based on example images of other faces seen in different poses. The example images are used to ’’learn‘‘ a pose-invariant shape and texture description of a new face. The 3D model is used to solve the correspondence problem between images showing faces in different poses. The proposed method is interesting for view independent face recognition tasks as well as for image synthesis problems in areas like teleconferencing and virtualized reality.
