MyHeritage Deep Nostalgia has been announced and it is another mind-blowing tool. If you have ever dreamed of having your pictures move like in the Harry Potter movies, well…now you can!
How Does MyHeritage Deep NostagliaTM Work?
MyHeritage Deep NostagliaTM uses “deep learning algorithms.” This allows the user to animate any face in a photo. The picture truly comes to life with movement, blinking, and even a smile. It works on black and white or colored photographs.
The out-of-this-world technology for animating photos was licensed by MyHeritage from D-ID. Once a photo is uploaded to MyHeritage Deep NostagliaTM , the system analyzes the orientation of the photographed individual’s head and the direction of the eyes to choose which pre-recorded driver video is best. It is then applied to your photo and wa-la, Grandma is moving!
There are several different pre-recorded drivers or movement sequences. You will definitely enjoy playing around with those. Learn more about how to do that in this helpful blog post at MyHeritage.
The end result is a high-quality video animation of the person in the photo. It can be shared on social media or downloaded in MP4 format.
Here is a quick video compilation I made of my ancestors pictures. Take a look at what you can do:
