Data and Morphable Face Models

3D Morphable Models are a well established technique in computer graphics and vision. They are generative shape models, and as such applicable in image analysis and synthesis tasks. 3D Morphable Models, and specifically 3D Morphable Face Models are the core of the research in the Computer Vision Group at the University of Basel.

The construction of 3D Morphable Models involves data aquisition and registration, which is a cost and labour intensive task. To allow a larger group of researchers access to high quality Morphable Models, we make the Basel Face Model available on this website.

The following versions of the model are available:

Additionally, an illumination prior model is also available for download:
