Abstract

The viewpoint dependency of complex facial expressions versus simple facial motions was analyzed. The MPI Tübingen Facial Expression Database was used for the psychophysical investigation of view dependency. The ANOVA revealed at best marginally significant effects of viewpoint or type of expression on recognition accuracy. It was observed that humans were able to recognize facial motions in a largely viewpoint invariant manner, which supports the theoretical model of face recognition. It was also suggested that in order to be recognized, computer generated facial expressions should 'look good' from all viewpoints.
