Update

  • Jan 10, 2022: update reference code for multiview pose optimization with uncalibrated cameras.

Setup

Setup environment

conda create -n anerf python=3.8
conda activate anerf

# install pytorch for your corresponding CUDA environments
pip install torch

# install pytorch3d: note that doing `pip install pytorch3d` directly may install an older version with bugs.
# be sure that you specify the version that matches your CUDA environment. See: https://github.com/facebookresearch/pytorch3d
pip install pytorch3d -f https://dl.fbaipublicfiles.com/pytorch3d/packaging/wheels/py38_cu102_pyt190/download.html

# install other dependencies
pip install -r requirements.txt

Download pre-processed data and pre-trained models

We provide pre-processed data in .h5 format, as well as pre-trained characters for SURREAL and Mixamo dataset.

Please see data/README.md for details.

Testing

You can use run_render.py to render the learned models under different camera motions, or retarget the character to different poses by

python run_render.py --nerf_args logs/surreal_model/args.txt --ckptpath logs/surreal_model/150000.tar \
                     --dataset surreal --entry hard --render_type bullet --render_res 512 512 \
                     --white_bkgd --runname surreal_bullet

Here,

  • --dataset specifies the data source for poses,
  • --entry specifices the particular subset from the dataset to render,
  • --render_type defines the camera motion to use, and
  • --render_res specifies the height and width of the rendered images.

Therefore, the above command will render 512x512 the learned SURREAL character with bullet-time effect like the following (resizsed to 256x256):

The output can be found in render_output/surreal_bullet/.

You can also extract mesh for the learned character:

python run_render.py --nerf_args logs/surreal_model/args.txt --ckptpath logs/surreal_model/150000.tar \
                     --dataset surreal --entry hard --render_type mesh --runname surreal_mesh

You can find the extracted .ply files in render_output/surreal_mesh/meshes/.

To render the mesh as in the paper, run

python render_mesh.py --expname surreal_mesh 

which will output the rendered images in render_output/surreal_mesh/mesh_render/ like the following:

You can change the setting in run_render.py to create your own rendering configuration.

Training

We provide template training configurations in configs/ for different settings.

To train A-NeRF on our pre-processed SURREAL dataset,

python run_nerf.py --config configs/surreal/surreal.txt --basedir logs  --expname surreal_model

The trained weights and log can be found in logs/surreal_model.

To train A-NeRF on our pre-processed Mixamo dataset with estimated poses, run

python run_nerf.py --config configs/mixamo/mixamo.txt --basedir log_mixamo/ --num_workers 8 --subject archer --expname mixamo_archer

This will train A-NeRF on Mixamo Archer with pose refinement for 500k iterations, with 8 worker threads for the dataloader.

You can also add --use_temp_loss --temp_coef 0.05 to optimize the pose with temporal constraint.

Additionally, you can specify --opt_pose_stop 200000 to stop the pose refinement at 200k iteraions to only optimize the body models for the remaining iterations.

To finetune the learned model, run

python run_nerf.py --config configs/mixamo/mixamo_finetune.txt --finetune --ft_path log_mixamo/mixamo_archer/500000.tar --expname mixamo_archer_finetune

This will finetune the learned Mixamo Archer for 200k with the already refined poses. Note that the pose will not be updated during this time.
