✴️ Animations Overview


Live Portrait (Animations), breathes life into any still photo. The Live Portrait process uses a driver video to animate a person in a still photo to precisely match the driver’s head movement, facial expressions, emotions and even voice. This artificial intelligence based technology brings a whole new dimension to photos and images, allowing them to be seen in a totally new and fresh way.
