Title (EN) A METHOD FOR THE AUTOMATIC COMPUTERIZED AUDIO VISUAL DUBBING OF MOVIES
(FR) PROCEDE DE DOUBLAGE AUDIOVISUEL INFORMATIQUE AUTOMATIQUE DE FILMS
Abstract:
(EN) A method using computer software for automatic audio visual dubbing (5), using an efficient computerized automatic method for audio visual dubbing of movies by computerized image copying of the characteristic features of the lip movements of the dubber onto the mouth area of the original speaker. The invention uses a method of vicinity-searching, three-dimensional head modeling of the original speaker (3), and texture mapping (10) technique to produce new images which correspond to the dubbed sound track. The invention thus overcomes the well known disadvantage of the correlation problems between lip movement in an original movie and the sound track of the dubbed movie.
(FR) Procédé mettant en oeuvre un logiciel informatique dans le doublage audiovisuel automatique (5), à l'aide d'un procédé automatique informatique performant permettant le doublage audiovisuel de films par duplication informatique, sur la zone buccale de l'acteur, d'images des caractéristiques essentielles des mouvements des lèvres du doubleur. On utilise un procédé de modélisation tridimensionnelle de la tête de l'acteur (3) par recherche de proximité, ainsi que des techniques de texturage (10), afin de produire de nouvelles images qui correspondent à la piste sonore doublée. Ce procédé permet donc de pallier l'inconvénient bien connu que représente le manque de cohérence entre les mouvements des lèvres des acteurs et la piste sonore du film doublé.
