Virtual clothing trials can bring fashion and technology together. Scientists all around the world are trying to experiment with deep-learning techniques that can be use to virtually dress a 3D avatar or digital versions of humans.
These developments in this field are being made in India too.
Two researchers at TCS Research India have come up with a deep learning technique call DeepDraper that can predict how clothing items will adapt to the contours of a person’s body.
This technology isn’t new as researchers claim that the new technique is more precise.
As it allows a person to better understand how an item of clothing will look on their body.
This technique was present at the International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV) Workshop.
Brojeshwar Bhowmick, Researchers, DeepDraper.
Explained How Technique Works.
The virtual draping is done after analysing a photo or a short video of a customer to estimate their 3D body shape, pose, and body measurements.
It gets data about a garment from the digital wardrobe of a seller.
The technical feeds the customer’s physical estimates to a neural network that predicts how the garment will look on the person’s 3D avatar.
The researchers evaluate their DeepDraper technique in a series of tests that prove to be better and more realistic with their estimates.
The system was also able to drape garments of different sizes on human bodies of all shapes and different various characteristics.
Brojeshwar Bhowmick Said :
This feature would allow it to be use on online clothing websites.
DeepDraper drapes the outfit on a static human body.
Researchers are planning to experiment with human movements and animate draping.
They are also planning to improve the technology to drape loose and multilayered garments such as dresses, gowns, t-shirts with jackets, and many more.
