Guide for use

  1. Create a folder with name 'data' for storing training and test data, and a folder with name 'model' for storing a trained model, under the main directory

  2. Download the COFW color images from http://www.vision.caltech.edu/xpburgos/ICCV13/ and unzip the .mat files to the 'data' folder

  3. Run the example_detection.m code for SDM training and test for facial landmark detection

  • Notice: The code was tested on Matlab 2016a with the Computer Vision System Toolbox. If you do not have this tool box. You can use the vlfeat toolbox instead.
