On August 29, Chinese selfie and social app maker Meitu announced the launch of an AI-powered digital human generator called DreamAvatar. The AI Actor feature in the new app is designed for various application scenarios including video content creation, film processing, and editing, Meitu said. It can transform real individuals into AI avatars in video clips shorter than 10 seconds. Supported by 3D human posture estimation and driving algorithms, DreamAvatar generates digital actors that are able to identify, track, and replicate human movements. Additionally, DreamAvatar employs camera pose estimation and light estimation algorithms to seamlessly integrate these digital avatars into the video background, ensuring a natural presentation, according to Meitu.
