This paper presents an automatic face replacement approach in video based on 2D morphable model. Our approach includes three main modules: face alignment, face morph, and face fusion. Given a source image and target video, the Active Shape Models (ASM) is adopted to source image and target frames for face alignment. Then the source face shape is warped to match the target face shape by a 2D morphable model. The color and lighting of source face are adjusted to keep consistent with those of target face, and seamlessly blended in the target face. Our approach is fully automatic without user interference, and generates natural and realistic results.
