Temporally Consistent Relighting for Portrait Videos
Ensuring ideal lighting when recording videos of people can be a daunting task requiring a controlled environment and expensive equipment. Methods were recently proposed to perform portrait relighting for still images, enabling after-the-fact lighting enhancement. However, naively applying these methods on each frame independently yields videos plagued with flickering artifacts. In this work, we propose the first method to perform temporally consistent video portrait relighting. To achieve this, our method optimizes end-to-end both desired lighting and temporal consistency jointly. We do not require ground truth lighting annotations during training, allowing us to take advantage of the large corpus of portrait videos already available on the internet. We demonstrate that our method outperforms previous work in balancing accurate relighting and temporal consistency on a number of real-world portrait videos.
