I'm looking for a facial recognition software that can capture in real time the eyes and the mouth of a person from a camera input. The idea is to to be able to then crop and put the eyes and mouth on another video output.

Preference for free software but will consider anything.

The software will need to run on both IOS and Android.

So far, my solution is to use the open source C library flandmark/clandmark and do some custom coding but I'd rather not. It looks simple enough and is free but the documentation is weak.

Otherwise, I've also looked into OpenCV and it also looks good but again, the documentation looks weak.

There's also openface that looked really user friendly but it doesn't support smartphone CPU architecture.

  • Did you see that it is replaced by clandmark? – user416 Aug 8 '16 at 14:26
  • @Izzy It needs to run on IOS and Android. 'This' was a C open source library called clandmark. What I like is it's in C so I'm guessing it shouldn't be a problem porting it to IOS and Android and integrating it into an app. I'm also looking into OpenCV right now which seems like a more feature rich library that does similar things. I'd really like something super easy to use though... – user2997154 Aug 8 '16 at 15:04
  • A little dated and in python but realpython.com/blog/python/… will give you a good starting point for OpenCV. – Steve Barnes Aug 8 '16 at 20:01
