Banuba, an augmented reality technology vendor for businesses, has added the ability to change the size and shape of all facial features to its product, Face AR SDK. With Face AR SDK, users can customize various facial features.

Specifically, eyebrows can be adjusted for spacing, height, and bend, while eyes can be altered in shape, size, spacing, squint, lower eyelid size, and position. Moreover, the nose can be fine-tuned for width, length, and tip size, while the mouth offers options for size, smile, shape, and lip thickness. Cheeks and cheekbones can be augmented or diminished, and the chin’s length, width, and V-shape can be modified to achieve desired results.

The applications of this upgraded face morphing feature are various. Not only can it simulate the potential outcomes of plastic surgery procedures, but it also allows for easy photo editing, appearance alterations during video calls, and more. Also, the face-morphing functionality can be combined with other features like face touch-up.

Furthermore, this advanced functionality will be integrated into the TINT makeup virtual try-on platform, enhancing its virtual try-on experience. In addition to the face-morphing capabilities, the v1.7 update also brings a performance boost. This is notable for WebAR SDK and lower-end smartphones that may have limited processing power. 

With the new Turbo mode, the face tracking system skips certain frames when detecting a face, reducing the device’s load while maintaining accuracy. In the web-based version, this option is enabled by default.

Another upgrade is the performance update for virtual backgrounds, a popular feature, product designers say. Apple device users will especially benefit from this update, as it delivers up to 10 times faster performance.
