Python wrapper for FeatureExtraction #767

wants to merge 27 commits into
base: master


Copy link

commented Aug 29, 2019

This branch (python) contains all required modification in bash files, dependencies and code to compile a python shared library containing the FeatureExtraction example with minimal controls.

The main issues i had with the code are the linkage with python3:

  • upgrade of CMake (3.15.0) - see &
  • upgrade of Boost (1.71.0) + a custom compilation configuration - see &
  • adjustments on dlib cmake configuration - see

The main modification to OpenFace code has been done in Utilities::RecorderOpenFace to retrieve landmarks, head pose and gaze easily. That is certainly not the best way to do it but it was the fastest.

All CMakes of OpenFace have also been altered to compile libraries in SHARED and not in STATIC. For the dependencies, this has been done via cmakes, so nothing to change manually.

CMake and compilation has been tested on Linux Mint 18.4 only.

Even if not complete or well documented, i think this could be a good basis for a complete OpenFace python lib.

All the best, great work by the way.

This will take some time for me to take a proper look at, but looks very promising, and as you mentioned would serve as a great foundation for a proper python interface to OpenFace (which would be awesome).
