C++ library and MatLab toolbox for Active Appearance Model


this is a note about free C++ libraries and MatLab toolboxes for Active Appearance Model.

1. C++ libraries:

  1. DeMoLib
    implements several AAM fitting methods.
    Difference from other libraries is that DeMoLib provides several AAM fitting methods such as some Inverse Compositional algorithms and 2D+3D fitting method. This feature is fantastic.
    The library requires OpenCV, VxL, and CMake.
  2. CoDe library
    is implementation of a CVPR 2009 paper “On Compositional Image Alignment with an Application to Active Appearance Models.
    With the library, we can align an AAM to a target image from an initial starting position.
    Its documentation tells us that the library requires Blas, Lapack, Cmake, and MatLab. MatLab is probably for PCA based learning part of AAM.
  3. FaceTracker
    is deformable face tracking library based on AAM.
    Looking at the author’s website, the library must work quite nice.
    It requires OpenCV.
  4. AAM-API
    is a C++ implementation of AAM.
