Learning Joint Reconstruction of Hands and Manipulated Objects - Demo, Training Code and Models

Yana Hasson, Gül Varol, Dimitris Tzionas, Igor Kalevatykh, Michael J. Black, Ivan Laptev, Cordelia Schmid, CVPR 2019

This code allows to generate synthetic images of hands holding objects as in the ObMan dataset.

In addition, hands-only images can also be generated, with hand-poses sampled randomly from the MANO hand pose space.

Examples of rendered images:

Hands+Objects Hands
handobject hand

Rendering generates:

  • rgb images
  • 3D ground truth for the hand and objects
  • depth maps
  • segmentation maps

Installation

Setup blender

  • Download Blender 2.78c (wget https://download.blender.org/release/Blender2.78/blender-2.78c-linux-glibc219-x86_64.tar.bz2 for instance)
  • untar tar -xvf blender-2.78c-linux-glibc219-x86_64.tar.bz2
  • Download getpip.py: wget https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py
  • Try blender-2.78c-linux-glibc219-x86_64/2.78/python/bin/python3.5m get-pip.py
    • If this fails, try:
      • Install pip path/to/blender-2.78c-linux-glibc219-x86_64/2.78/python/bin/python3.5m path/to/blender-2.78c-linux-glibc219-x86_64/2.78/python/lib/python3.5/ensurepip
      • Try to update pip path/to/blender-2.78c-linux-gliblender-2.78c-linux-glibc219-x86_64/2.78/python/bin/pip3 install --upgrade pip
  • Install dependencies
    • path/to/blender-2.78c-linux-glibc219-x86_64/2.78/python/bin/pip install -r requirements.txt

Clone repository

git clone https://github.com/hassony2/obman_render
cd obman_render

Download data dependencies

Download hand and object pickle data-structures

Download SURREAL assets

  • Go to SURREAL dataset request page
  • Create an account, and receive an email with a username and password for data download
  • Download SURREAL data dependencies using the following commands
cd download
sh download_smpl_data.sh ../assets username password
cd ..

Download MANO model

  • Go to MANO website
  • Create an account by clicking Sign Up and provide your information
  • Download Models and Code (the downloaded file should have the format mano_v*_*.zip). Note that all code and data from this download falls under the MANO license.
  • unzip the file mano_v*_*.zip: unzip mano_v*_*.zip
  • set environment variable: export MANO_LOCATION=/path/to/mano_v*_*

Modify mano code to be Python3 compatible

  • Remove print 'FINITO' at the end of file webuser/smpl_handpca_wrapper.py (line 144)
-    print 'FINITO'
  • Replace import cPickle as pickle by import pickle
-    import cPickle as pickle
+    import pickle
  • at top of webuser/smpl_handpca_wrapper.py (line 23)
  • at top of webuser/serialization.py (line 30)
  • Fix pickle encoding
    • in webuser/smpl_handpca_wrapper.py (line 74)
-    smpl_data = pickle.load(open(fname_or_dict))
+    smpl_data = pickle.load(open(fname_or_dict, 'rb'), encoding='latin1')
  • in webuser/serialization.py (line 90)
-    dd = pickle.load(open(fname_or_dict))
+    dd = pickle.load(open(fname_or_dict, 'rb'), encoding='latin1')
  • Fix model paths in webuser/smpl_handpca_wrapper.py (line 81-84)
-    with open('/is/ps2/dtzionas/mano/models/MANO_LEFT.pkl', 'rb') as f:
-        hand_l = load(f)
-    with open('/is/ps2/dtzionas/mano/models/MANO_RIGHT.pkl', 'rb') as f:
-        hand_r = load(f)
+    with open('/path/to/mano_v*_*/models/MANO_LEFT.pkl', 'rb') as f:
+        hand_l = load(f, encoding='latin1')
+    with open('/path/to/mano_v*_*/models/MANO_RIGHT.pkl', 'rb') as f:
+        hand_r = load(f, encoding='latin1')

At the time of writing the instructions mano version is 1.2 so use

-    with open('/is/ps2/dtzionas/mano/models/MANO_LEFT.pkl', 'rb') as f:
-        hand_l = load(f)
-    with open('/is/ps2/dtzionas/mano/models/MANO_RIGHT.pkl', 'rb') as f:
-        hand_r = load(f)
+    with open('/path/to/mano_v1_2/models/MANO_LEFT.pkl', 'rb') as f:
+        hand_l = load(f, encoding='latin1')
+    with open('/path/to/mano_v1_2/models/MANO_RIGHT.pkl', 'rb') as f:
+        hand_r = load(f, encoding='latin1')

Download SMPL model

  • Go to SMPL website
  • Create an account by clicking Sign Up and provide your information
  • Download and unzip SMPL for Python users, copy the models folder to assets/models. Note that all code and data from this download falls under the SMPL license.

OPTIONAL : Download LSUN dataset (to generate images on LSUN backgrounds)

Download LSUN dataset following the instructions.

OPTIONAL : Download ImageNet dataset (to generate images on ImageNet backgrounds)

  • Download original images from here

Download body+hand textures and grasp information

  • Request data on the ObMan webpage

  • Download grasp and texture zips

You should receive two links that will allow you to download bodywithands.zip and shapenet_grasps.zip.

  • Unzip texture zip
cd assets/textures
mv path/to/downloaded/bodywithands.zip .
unzip bodywithands.zip
cd ../..
  • Unzip the grasp information
cd assets/grasps
mv path/to/downloaded/shapenet_grasps.zip .
unzip shapenet_grasps.zip
cd ../../
  • Your structure should look like this:
obman_render/
  assets/
    models/
      SMPLH_female.pkl
      basicModel_f_lbs_10_207_0_v1.0.2.fbx'
