Single image facial view synthesis using SFS
W.A.P. Smith, A. Robles-Kelly and E. Hancock (University of York)

We present a facial view synthesis technique based on explicit shape and re-
flectance information extracted from a single image. The technique combines
an image based reflectance estimation process with a novel method of interpolating
between needle-maps recovered using shape from shading. This
allows images of a face to be synthesised under novel lighting, pose and skin
reflectance given only one example image.
