Not at all. Aside from the fact that the term “DeepFake” is often applied to videos edited with malicious intent, Flawless’ products are built from entirely different technology. “DeepFakes” work like a face filter, essentially placing a facemask over a different person’s physical performance.
Flawless, uses a patented technology called “DeepCapture,” a process powered by deep learning. It takes a detailed 4D scan of the actors existing performance, enabling the DeepCapture system to learn the intricacies and nuances of the actor themselves. The end result is that any new lines are driven by the actors original performance, not puppeteered or ‘faked’ by someone else.
