Technical Specification

This page provides technical metrics of Face AR SDK feature performance. The values below are for your reference only. We received them on fixed conditions. However, many factors may influence the actual technology performance, e.g. the state of device, other apps running, wi-fi enabled, room temperature, etc. We encourage you to test each feature within your environment.

note
  • FPS โ€” Frames per second of the face detection algorithm on a given device.
  • Angles โ€” Maximum angle on which the technology was able to work during the measurement.
  • Distance โ€” Maximum distance on which the technology was able to work during the measurement.
  • Real-time (online) โ€” Technology performance in real-time.
  • Photo (offline) โ€” The processing time needed to take a photo or process it from the gallery.

Faces Number* โ€” Maximum number of faces which SDK can track with acceptable quality and performance on most mobile devices. The actual number allowed for multi-face tracking is not limited by the technology but only by the physical ability of the device and proportions of the screen.

Effect performance#

Banuba SDK allows for a variety of Face AR effects. Some of them require only face tracking and can be represented as a single 3D mask with textures and materials. Other effects are implemented with separately trained neural networks.

Below, you may find information on the real-time performance of Face AR effects which require only face tracking, i.e. face filters, avatars with action units, beautification, and makeup filter (without lipstick).

Beautification#

Beautification filter#

Basic face beautification filter includes skin smoothing, morphing, teeth whitening, eyes flare and LUT. It requires only face tracking, so please, refer to the Effects performance section. Other features given below are based on neural networks, and their performance differs.

Makeup#

The Makeup filter allows for a realistic try on of foundation, eyeshadow, eyeliner, highlighter, contour, and blusher. It requires only face tracking, so please, refer to the Effects performance section. The lipstick try on requires lips segmentation neural network with a separate algorithm for Lips Shine effect.
