Sample text

In this mode, the user has the option to lock the shape of a particular facial feature that exhibits a good likeness to the corresponding feature in the target face. This is achieved by choosing a region in an iconic face located on the right hand side of the interface and then selecting one of the nine virtual faces. Placing the cursor over a feature in the iconic face and using a single click of the left mouse button turns that region from grey to blue, indicating that the shape of the chosen feature will be fixed through subsequent generations.

All dimensions in face space represent commensurate quantities which describe characteristics of the face as a whole. Such a representation is mathematically and intuitively satisfying. Appearance space is an optimally compact space. The combined linear PCA on shape and texture ensures that the resulting matrix of appearance parameters is optimally compact in the linear, least-squares sense. Thus, a representative training sample will enable us to reconstruct both in and out-of-sample images, to within a given least-squares error, using a minimum number of dimensions in appearance space.
