Beginning with version 3.5.5, three add-ins, Face Extractor, Face Locator and Face Mixer, were added to the FantaMorph Deluxe edition. With these intelligent, powerful and novel tools, morphing faces or fusing multiple faces into one has never been easier and faster! With Face Extractor, the program can automatically extract the face portion from an image. With Face Locator, the program can now automatically detect the facial features (eyes, nose, mouth, etc.) and place key dots on appropriate positions, this will extremely save your time. With Face Mixer, you can mix two or more pictures into one. In most cases, we use Face Mixer to compose a virtual face with multiple real faces.
For example, we have a series of images as shown below. We will show you how it is easy to morph multiple faces or compose a virtual face with multiple real faces by using FantaMorph Deluxe.
Using Face Extractor
In most cases, the picture size and aspect ratio of the source images are very
different, and you will find that you only wish to work with the face portion of
the images and don't wish to use entire images. Although you can use the
built-in crop tool (see "How to Crop
Source Images") to select the desired face portion of an image, it is not an
easy work. Especially after you change the movie size, you have to re-crop all
the source images to keep the aspect ratio, otherwise the movie will be
Now, with the intelligent tool, Face Extractor, the program can automatically extract the face portion from all the source images in the project using an extracting template. See more about "How to Use Face Extractor".
After using Face Extractor, all the cropped source images are in the same aspect ratio, and all the extracted face portions are aligned. This will ensure the final morph very smooth.
Using Face Locator
Now, the most important element is to place key dots on all the source images in order to define how the morphing or composing process will operate. But, we all are tired of placing key dots one by one manually... With the intelligent tool, Face Locator, the program can automatically detect the facial features (eyes, nose, mouth, etc.) and place key dots on appropriate positions. This will extremely save your time! See more about "How to Use Face Locator".
After using Face Locator, the morph result is almost good. You can then spend a little time to modify the key dots accurately or add more key dots for a better result. Any way, with Face Extractor, placing key dots on a face of an image has never been easier and faster!
Especially, after you change the final movie size, just launch Face Extractor again, it will automatically re-crop all the source images to fit the new aspect ratio.
Using Face Mixer
With Face Mixer, you can easily mix multiple pictures into one. In most cases, we use Face Mixer to compose a virtual face with multiple real faces. See more about "How to Use Face Mixer".
Can you imagine what a virtual face we will get? See below. Yes, it's virtual, but it looks strikingly life-like, as a real person. It is none the person in any source image, but it is really influenced by each person in the source images.
By default, we get an "average" face of the source faces as above. Face Mixer can also create countless results by using random percentage of the source faces. See below. Please try to fuse different pictures of your favorite stars, your friends and family, men, women, children or any people into a wonderful, awesome or funny face. It's just plain fun!
