I was checking out this cool app called Morfo refer this link http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/morfo/id418900007?mt=8 . According to their product description -
Use Morfo to quickly turn a photo of your friend’s face into a talking, dancing, crazy 3D character! Once captured, you can make your friend say anything you want in a silly voice, rock out, wear makeup,sport a pair of huge green cat eyes, suddenly gain 300lbs, and more.
So if you take a normal 2D image of steve jobs & feed it to this app it converts it into a 3D model of that image & the user can interact with it.
My questions are as following -
- How are they doing this?
- How is this possible in iPad?
- Isn’t it computationally intensive to render and convert 2D image into 3D?
Any pointers, links to websites or libraries in objectiveC which do this is very much appreciated.
UPDATE: this demo of this application is here in this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjWaJo2-2Xo shows how morfo, uses a template mechanism to do the conversion. i.e. after a 2D image is fed, one needs to set the boundaries of the face, where the eyes are located, size & length of lips. then it goes off to convert it into a 3D model. How is this part done? What frameworks or libraries they might be using?
