Image pose and expression control.
Drag Your GAN is an AI tool developed for controlling generative adversarial networks (GANs) with increased flexibility, precision, and generality. The tool allows users to synthesize visual content to meet their needs by manipulating the pose, shape, expression, and layout of generated objects through the interactive point-based manipulation on the generative image manifold. DragGAN is composed of feature-based motion supervision that drives handle points to target positions and a new point tracking approach that leverages GAN features to localize the position of handle points. This process allows anyone to precisely deform an image, manipulating diverse categories such as animals, humans, cars, and landscapes, among others, with realistic outputs, even in challenging scenarios such as hallucinating occluded content and deforming shapes that consistently follow the object's rigidity. The results of using DragGAN show an advantage over prior approaches in image manipulation and point tracking. Additionally, the tool allows for the manipulation of real images through GAN inversion. Drag Your GAN's impressive ability to allow users to manipulate pixels with precision and flexibility demonstrates the potential for GANs in synthesizing visual content to meet varied needs. This tool's purpose in interactive point-based manipulation adds control to GANs for better image manipulation, making it an important inclusion in the AI directory.
