StyleGAN — Encoder for Official TensorFlow Implementation
These people are real – latent representation of them was found by using perceptual loss trick. Then this representations were moved along "smiling direction" and transformed back into images
Short explanation of encoding approach: 0) Original pre-trained StyleGAN generator is used for generating images
- Pre-trained VGG16 network is used for transforming a reference image and generated image into high-level features space
- Loss is calculated as a difference between them in the features space
- Optimization is performed only for latent representation which we want to obtain.
- Upon completion of optimization you are able to transform your latent vector as you wish. For example you can find a "smiling direction" in your latent space, move your latent vector in this direction and transform it back to image using the generator.
New scripts for finding your own directions will be realised soon. For now you can play with existing ones: smiling, age, gender. More examples you can find in the Jupyter notebook
Generating latent representation of your images
You can generate latent representations of your own images using two scripts:
- Extract and align faces from images
python align_images.py raw_images/ aligned_images/
- Find latent representation of aligned images
python encode_images.py aligned_images/ generated_images/ latent_representations/
- Then you can play with Jupyter notebook
Feel free to join the research. There is still much room for improvement:
- Better model for perceptual loss
- Is it possible to generate latent representations by using other model instead of direct optimization ? (WIP)

A Style-Based Generator Architecture for Generative Adversarial Networks
Tero Karras (NVIDIA), Samuli Laine (NVIDIA), Timo Aila (NVIDIA)
Abstract: We propose an alternative generator architecture for generative adversarial networks, borrowing from style transfer literature. The new architecture leads to an automatically learned, unsupervised separation of high-level attributes (e.g., pose and identity when trained on human faces) and stochastic variation in the generated images (e.g., freckles, hair), and it enables intuitive, scale-specific control of the synthesis. The new generator improves the state-of-the-art in terms of traditional distribution quality metrics, leads to demonstrably better interpolation properties, and also better disentangles the latent factors of variation. To quantify interpolation quality and disentanglement, we propose two new, automated methods that are applicable to any generator architecture. Finally, we introduce a new, highly varied and high-quality dataset of human faces.

Using pre-trained networks
A minimal example of using a pre-trained StyleGAN generator is given in pretrained_example.py. When executed, the script downloads a pre-trained StyleGAN generator from Google Drive and uses it to generate an image:
> python pretrained_example.py Downloading https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1MEGjdvVpUsu1jB4zrXZN7Y4kBBOzizDQ .... done Gs Params OutputShape WeightShape --- --- --- --- latents_in - (?, 512) - ... images_out - (?, 3, 1024, 1024) - --- --- --- --- Total 26219627 > ls results example.png # https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1UDLT_zb-rof9kKH0GwiJW_bS9MoZi8oP
A more advanced example is given in generate_figures.py. The script reproduces the figures from our paper in order to illustrate style mixing, noise inputs, and truncation:

The pre-trained networks are stored as standard pickle files on Google Drive:
# Load pre-trained network. url = 'https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1MEGjdvVpUsu1jB4zrXZN7Y4kBBOzizDQ' # karras2019stylegan-ffhq-1024x1024.pkl with dnnlib.util.open_url(url, cache_dir=config.cache_dir) as f: _G, _D, Gs = pickle.load(f) # _G = Instantaneous snapshot of the generator. Mainly useful for resuming a previous training run. # _D = Instantaneous snapshot of the discriminator. Mainly useful for resuming a previous training run. # Gs = Long-term average of the generator. Yields higher-quality results than the instantaneous snapshot.
The above code downloads the file and unpickles it to yield 3 instances of dnnlib.tflib.Network. To generate images, you will typically want to use
Gs – the other two networks are provided for completeness. In order for
pickle.load() to work, you will need to have the
dnnlib source directory in your PYTHONPATH and a
tf.Session set as default. The session can initialized by calling
There are three ways to use the pre-trained generator:
Gs.run()for immediate-mode operation where the inputs and outputs are numpy arrays:
# Pick latent vector. rnd = np.random.RandomState(5) latents = rnd.randn(1, Gs.input_shape) # Generate image. fmt = dict(func=tflib.convert_images_to_uint8, nchw_to_nhwc=True) images = Gs.run(latents, None, truncation_psi=0.7, randomize_noise=True, output_transform=fmt)
The first argument is a batch of latent vectors of shape
[num, 512]. The second argument is reserved for class labels (not used by StyleGAN). The remaining keyword arguments are optional and can be used to further modify the operation (see below). The output is a batch of images, whose format is dictated by the
Gs.get_output_for()to incorporate the generator as a part of a larger TensorFlow expression:
latents = tf.random_normal([self.minibatch_per_gpu] + Gs_clone.input_shape[1:]) images = Gs_clone.get_output_for(latents, None, is_validation=True, randomize_noise=True) images = tflib.convert_images_to_uint8(images) result_expr.append(inception_clone.get_output_for(images))
The above code is from metrics/frechet_inception_distance.py. It generates a batch of random images and feeds them directly to the Inception-v3 network without having to convert the data to numpy arrays in between.
Gs.components.synthesisto access individual sub-networks of the generator. Similar to
Gs, the sub-networks are represented as independent instances of dnnlib.tflib.Network:
src_latents = np.stack(np.random.RandomState(seed).randn(Gs.input_shape) for seed in src_seeds) src_dlatents = Gs.components.mapping.run(src_latents, None) # [seed, layer, component] src_images = Gs.components.synthesis.run(src_dlatents, randomize_noise=False, **synthesis_kwargs)
The above code is from generate_figures.py. It first transforms a batch of latent vectors into the intermediate W space using the mapping network and then turns these vectors into a batch of images using the synthesis network. The
dlatentsarray stores a separate copy of the same w vector for each layer of the synthesis network to facilitate style mixing.
The exact details of the generator are defined in training/networks_stylegan.py (see
G_synthesis). The following keyword arguments can be specified to modify the behavior when calling
truncation_cutoffcontrol the truncation trick that that is performed by default when using
Gs(ψ=0.7, cutoff=8). It can be disabled by setting
is_validation=True, and the image quality can be further improved at the cost of variation by setting e.g.
truncation_psi=0.5. Note that truncation is always disabled when using the sub-networks directly. The average w needed to manually perform the truncation trick can be looked up using
randomize_noisedetermines whether to use re-randomize the noise inputs for each generated image (
True, default) or whether to use specific noise values for the entire minibatch (
False). The specific values can be accessed via the
tf.Variableinstances that are found using
[var for name, var in Gs.components.synthesis.vars.items() if name.startswith('noise')].
When using the mapping network directly, you can specify
dlatent_broadcast=Noneto disable the automatic duplication of
dlatentsover the layers of the synthesis network.
Runtime performance can be fine-tuned via
dtype='float16'. The former disables support for progressive growing, which is not needed for a fully-trained generator, and the latter performs all computation using half-precision floating point arithmetic.
Preparing datasets for training
The training and evaluation scripts operate on datasets stored as multi-resolution TFRecords. Each dataset is represented by a directory containing the same image data in several resolutions to enable efficient streaming. There is a separate *.tfrecords file for each resolution, and if the dataset contains labels, they are stored in a separate file as well. By default, the scripts expect to find the datasets at
datasets/<NAME>/<NAME>-<RESOLUTION>.tfrecords. The directory can be changed by editing config.py:
result_dir = 'results' data_dir = 'datasets' cache_dir = 'cache'
To obtain the FFHQ dataset (
datasets/ffhq), please refer to the Flickr-Faces-HQ repository.
To obtain the CelebA-HQ dataset (
datasets/celebahq), please refer to the Progressive GAN repository.
To obtain other datasets, including LSUN, please consult their corresponding project pages. The datasets can be converted to multi-resolution TFRecords using the provided dataset_tool.py:
> python dataset_tool.py create_lsun datasets/lsun-bedroom-full ~/lsun/bedroom_lmdb --resolution 256 > python dataset_tool.py create_lsun_wide datasets/lsun-car-512x384 ~/lsun/car_lmdb --width 512 --height 384 > python dataset_tool.py create_lsun datasets/lsun-cat-full ~/lsun/cat_lmdb --resolution 256 > python dataset_tool.py create_cifar10 datasets/cifar10 ~/cifar10 > python dataset_tool.py create_from_images datasets/custom-dataset ~/custom-images
Once the datasets are set up, you can train your own StyleGAN networks as follows:
- Edit train.py to specify the dataset and training configuration by uncommenting or editing specific lines.
- Run the training script with
- The results are written to a newly created directory
- The training may take several days (or weeks) to complete, depending on the configuration.
train.py is configured to train the highest-quality StyleGAN (configuration F in Table 1) for the FFHQ dataset at 1024×1024 resolution using 8 GPUs. Please note that we have used 8 GPUs in all of our experiments. Training with fewer GPUs may not produce identical results – if you wish to compare against our technique, we strongly recommend using the same number of GPUs.
Expected training time for 1024×1024 resolution using Tesla V100 GPUs:
Evaluating quality and disentanglement
The quality and disentanglement metrics used in our paper can be evaluated using run_metrics.py. By default, the script will evaluate the Fréchet Inception Distance (
fid50k) for the pre-trained FFHQ generator and write the results into a newly created directory under
results. The exact behavior can be changed by uncommenting or editing specific lines in run_metrics.py.
Expected evaluation time and results for the pre-trained FFHQ generator using one Tesla V100 GPU:
|fid50k||16 min||4.4159||Fréchet Inception Distance using 50,000 images.|
|ppl_zfull||55 min||664.8854||Perceptual Path Length for full paths in Z.|
|ppl_wfull||55 min||233.3059||Perceptual Path Length for full paths in W.|
|ppl_zend||55 min||666.1057||Perceptual Path Length for path endpoints in Z.|
|ppl_wend||55 min||197.2266||Perceptual Path Length for path endpoints in W.|
|ls||10 hours||z: 165.0106
|Linear Separability in Z and W.|
Please note that the exact results may vary from run to run due to the non-deterministic nature of TensorFlow.
