A new deepfake tool will let users change their appearance in real-time during live video streams—opening up a range of new possibilities for the contentious technology.
Known as DeepFaceLive, the open-source tool, released last month on the code-hosting platform Github, allows users to place another face over their own while using video messaging programs such as Skype and Zoom.
DeepFaceLive’s creator, a secretive Russian developer known online as Iperov, first shared footage of the tool’s interface to a deepfake forum in late April. Iperov is also credited as one of the main developers of DeepFaceLab, the most widely used open-source tool for creating deepfakes.
Available for Windows 10, DeepFaceLive works by utilizing the very same datasets of celebrity faces that are already used to create deepfake videos.
Much like Snapchat’s Snap Camera, which allows users to apply face filters through their webcams, DeepFaceLive can be used in conjunction with most video-based streaming and messaging services. DeepFaceLive’s face-swapping ability can also be applied to pre-recorded videos.
