PoseFix: Model-agnostic General Human Pose Refinement Network

PWC

PoseFix makes pose result of any methods better from a single '.json' file!

News

We achieved top performance by refining the state-of-the-art (HRNet, CVPR 2019). You can always make your results better!

Introduction

This repo is official TensorFlow implementation of PoseFix: Model-agnostic General Human Pose Refinement Network (CVPR 2019) for model-agnostic human pose refinement from a single RGB image. What this repo provides:

Dependencies

This code is tested under Ubuntu 16.04, CUDA 9.0, cuDNN 7.1 environment with two NVIDIA 1080Ti GPUs.

Python 3.6.5 version with Anaconda 3 is used for development.

Directory

Root

The ${POSE_ROOT} is described as below.

${POSE_ROOT}
|-- data
|-- lib
|-- main
|-- tool
`-- output
  • data contains data loading codes and soft links to images and annotations directories.
  • lib contains kernel codes for 2d multi-person pose estimation system.
  • main contains high-level codes for training or testing the network.
  • tool contains dataset converter. posetrack2coco_output.py converts posetrack output files to coco format.
  • output contains log, trained models, visualized outputs, and test result.

Data

You need to follow directory structure of the data as below.

  • In the tool of TF-SimpleHumanPose, run python mpii2coco.py to convert MPII annotation files to MS COCO format (MPII/annotations).
  • In the tool of TF-SimpleHumanPose, run python posetrack2coco.py to convert PoseTrack annotation files to MS COCO format (PoseTrack/annotations).
  • Download imagenet pre-trained resnet models from tf-slim and place it in the data/imagenet_weights.
  • Except for annotations of the MPII and PoseTrack, all other directories are original version of downloaded ones.
  • If you want to add your own dataset, you have to convert it to MS COCO format.
  • You can change default directory structure of data by modifying dataset.py of each dataset folder.

Output

You need to follow the directory structure of the output folder as below.

${POSE_ROOT}
|-- output
|-- |-- log
|-- |-- model_dump
|-- |-- result
`-- |-- vis
  • Creating output folder as soft link form is recommended instead of folder form because it would take large storage capacity.
  • log folder contains training log file.
  • model_dump folder contains saved checkpoints for each epoch.
  • result folder contains final estimation files generated in the testing stage.
  • vis folder contains visualized results.
  • You can change default directory structure of output by modifying main/config.py.

Running PoseFix

Start

  • Run pip install -r requirement.txt to install required modules.
  • Run cd ${POSE_ROOT}/lib and make to build NMS modules.
  • In the main/config.py, you can change settings of the model including dataset to use, network backbone, and input size and so on.

Train

input_pose/test_on_trainset/result.json should be prepared before training. This is test result on the training set with the groundtruth bbox and used when synthesizing input pose of not annotated keypoints in the training stage. Testing result of TF-SimpleHumanPose is used.

In the main folder, run

python train.py --gpu 0-1

to train the network on the GPU 0,1.

If you want to continue experiment, run

python train.py --gpu 0-1 --continue

--gpu 0,1 can be used instead of --gpu 0-1.

Test

input_pose/name_of_input_pose.json is pose estimation result of any other method. You have to rename the it and also input_pose_path of the data/$DATASET/dataset.py. The input_pose/name_of_input_pose.json should be follow MS COCO format. To test on the PoseTrack dataset, run tool/posetrack2coco_output.py before testing to convert PoseTrack output files to COCO format.

Place trained model at the output/model_dump/$DATASET/ and pose estimation result of any other method (name_of_input_pose.json) to data/$DATASET/input_pose/.

In the main folder, run

python test.py --gpu 0-1 --test_epoch 140

to test the network on the GPU 0,1 with 140th epoch trained model. --gpu 0,1 can be used instead of --gpu 0-1.

Results

Here I report the performance of the PoseFix. Also, I provide pre-trained models of the PoseFix and test_on_trainset/result.json.

As this repo outputs compatible output files for MS COCO and PoseTrack, you can directly use cocoapi or poseval to evaluate result on the MS COCO or PoseTrack dataset. You have to convert the produced mat file to MPII mat format to evaluate on MPII dataset following this.

Results on MSCOCO 2017 dataset

We additionally applied our PoseFix on HRNet (Ke etal. CVPR2019), and achieved the top performance.

  • You have to set dataset, backbone and input_shape to those of the model in config.py.
  • Pre-trained PoseFix model (COCO 2017, ResNet-152, 384x288) [model]
  • Testing result on the COCO 2017 training set of TF-SimpleHumanPose [kps]

Results on PoseTrack 2018 dataset

  • You have to set dataset, backbone and input_shape to those of the model in config.py.
  • Pre-trained PoseFix model (PoseTrack 2018, ResNet-152, 384x288) [model]
  • Testing result on the PoseTrack 2018 training set of TF-SimpleHumanPose [kps]

Troubleshoot

  1. Those who are suffer from out of bound index issue, please refer this issue. According to TF docs, tf.scatter_nd will ignore out of bound indices in GPU mode. However, BruceLeeeee had a issue with that and fixed by clipping coordinates.

  2. For those who suffer from FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'tmp_result_0.pkl' in testing stage, please prepare human detection result and input pose properly. The pkl files are generated and deleted automatically in testing stage, so you don't have to prepare them. Most of this error comes from inproper human detection file.
