Another “face changing software” is on fire. But this time, instead of turning you into someone else, it will let you completely cartoon and turn yourself into a Disney princess and prince on the run.

Recently, on social media such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, both men and women, young and old, are posting their own photos of the four-square grid cartoon. The entire network instantly became a playground for Disney and Pixar.

Hidden behind this hot phenomenon is a mysterious AI image software-Volia AI Airtist. The software was quietly released in April this year without any announcements, and then set off a viral effect. Less than two months after its release, it defeated powerful enemies such as TikTok, Instagram, and Snapchat, and rushed to the U.S. App Store. #1 in the list of free downloads. Starting from June 8th, it has been dominating the list in the United States of iOS for more than one week in a row.

It is equally strong on the Android side. So far, the Google Play store has more than 10 million downloads, and it has been among the top 10 apps in 26 countries.

It’s not uncommon to make photos animated and cartoonized. The trend of “cartoon changing face” has been blown from last year to the present, so what new tricks has this software created to be so enthusiastically sought after?

The most “Pixar” 3D cartoon face

In fact, there are many softwares for making facial cartoons. The user may open a camera app with special effects that will make you cartoon, but the level is mostly uneven: some are too rough, accidentally turning Takeshi Kaneshiro into the next door Zhao Si; some are too distorted, directly turning the big guy Become a manga beauty.

As we all know, as the ceiling of the animation industry, the animated characters produced by Disney and Pixar are so detailed that they can see even a strand of hair and a drop of dew. So this kind of simple “big eyebrows, big eyes and a little nose” special effects can’t reach their threshold at all.

A major feature of Volia AI Airtist is that its processing is very “Pixar”. It can not only accurately capture your look in the photo, carefully process the color of your hair and eyeballs, but also help you to remove freckles, wrinkles, and dark circles naturally and unintentionally, turning your photos into a picture that you will know at a glance You, but at the same time a very cartoon character.

Unlike many apps that can only deal with one style, Volia AI Airtist can transform your photos into temperament, normal, funny, baby face, evil, and baby evil within a few seconds. Different styles. Each can convey a completely different character state through subtle differences.

For example, let’s take the richest man Bezos as an example.

I have to say that Mr. Bei’s bald head shape is too suitable for this software. The slightly “windy” ears and a slightly squinted eye are perfectly restored, which is simply a character that jumped out of the Disney animation.

Next, let’s take a look at Papa Ma. The texture of the hair and the crow’s feet in the corners of the eyes have been treated vividly, and even the depth of the dimples has been slightly changed according to different effects. Is the baby version a bit too cute? People can’t help but want to pinch their faces.

In addition to the amazing details, Volia AI Airtist also has a skill that is praised by netizens in that no matter how fuzzy the photos are, it will not affect its operation in the slightest. It can even make your photos clear with one click.

For example, in this “famous scene” of Musk, the high-fuzzy picture, the tall eyebrows, the look of the eyes and the lingering smoke are accurately captured, and the skinning and brightening function is automatically added to him, and the transformed film is completely absent. The feeling of “mushy”.

Changing to a cartoon is just one way to play

If Volia AI Airtist’s functions are only the ones shown above that allow you to become a cartoon character, no matter how good the effect is, you may not be able to support so many favorites. In fact, in addition to the “Disney” style, the selling point of this software also includes various styles and tones of “face changing” features such as Renaissance, 2D cartoon, comic style, etc., and they also maintain a high level of output. .

Volia Ai Artist currently provides 4 different processing special effects

For example, in addition to 3D cartoons, the most popular “Renaissance” effect, which is also a few seconds, can let you instantly travel back to the three different eras of the 15th, 18th, and 20th centuries, and see if you were affected by that time. What it would be like for a painter to paint into an oil painting.

Let’s take a look at the “Renaissance” version of Bezos and Papa Ma, is it the temperament that has been pinched.

Even Musk’s originally cynical photo has been given the feeling of an ancient Greek fighter, and the processing effect of the high blur image is still amazing.

Of course, you can also try 2D cartoons and comics one by one. Silicon Stars will not show you one by one here. In addition to looking at the effects of your own photos, the software also has a built-in celebrity search conversion function. You can change the way to see what your idol looks like under various effects. Interested friends can try it for themselves.

At present, the software supports real-time taking and uploading of photos, and can automatically identify and select portraits. In the saving settings, you can share the picture to social platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp with one click, or save it directly to the local. There are two options for saving format, four square grid and single, you can save your favorite effect separately and use it to make avatar like many people do.

This software is currently free to download and use on both Apple and Android systems. But what needs to be reminded is that although it is free, there are really many advertisements and most of the duration is 30 seconds. This is also the most criticized part of this software in the comment area. If you want to skip ads and remove the watermark, you need to pay. Android is $2 a week, and Apple is $3 a week (yes, iOS is more expensive than Android).

However, the Silicon Stars felt that it was the hard work of the behind-the-scenes technical team that created such an excellent App. Choosing to pay or watch ads patiently is also a respect for the team’s hard work. Silicon Stars believe that you will still like the various interesting special effects it can bring to you very much after the advertisement.

The mysterious AI company behind

So who suddenly launched Voilà AI Artist? Behind the scenes is a company called Wemagine.AI. The company only officially registered in London, England in January this year, and launched the app less than two months after its establishment. There is almost no information about this company and team on the Internet. The homepage of its official website is also very simple. In addition to indicating that they are the creators of Voilà AI Artist, they only introduce that they are a small team that loves to combine artificial intelligence technology with creativity, and there are two main initiators. Voilà AI Artist is the first App they produced.

Fox News also tried to reach Wemagine.AI. The company responded that their core members are currently stationed in Canada, and the team is very small, all under 35 years old. At present, members are scattered all over the world in the mode of remote work. One of the two founders is still in Indonesia. Everyone has gathered together because of their love for artificial intelligence technology .

In fact, it is nothing new to use AI to change the face of a photo. Both Douyin and Snapchat have previously introduced filters that make people cartoonish in real time, which has set off an upsurge at home and abroad. And this kind of magical special effects that instantly transform into Disney’s fugitive princess and fugitive prince are inseparable from the development of artificial intelligence technology.

These “magic” are closely related to a technology called GAN (Generative Adversarial Networks). GAN, also known as generative confrontation network, is a deep learning model. It is an unsupervised algorithm that is very popular in the AI ​​field in recent years. It can generate very realistic photos, images and even videos. Now it has been widely used in image-related software.

The most powerful part of GAN lies in its automatic learning ability, which is mainly composed of two parts: generator and discriminator. The generator is responsible for generating pictures, the purpose is to fool the discriminator; the discriminator is responsible for trying to find out the fake data made by the generator. Both of them are getting higher and higher in the constant you come and me. In the end, you will be able to get a very good picture produced by the generator.

One of the technological advancements of Voilà AI Artist is that it has greatly improved the accuracy of portrait recognition and transformation. For example, the very popular princess filter on Tik Tok always gives people a uniform feeling-no matter who “changes his face”, except for the different hairstyles and clothes, they all look the same. The same type of software ToonMe that was once very popular before, although it also turned people into cartoon characters, it was often ugly after being cartoonized by users.

Voila AI Artist can perform creative processing while maintaining the characteristics of portraits, identifying and transforming details more intelligently. At the same time, the developer has an aesthetic online, which perfectly combines art and technology.

The special effects of fairy princesses on Douyin are basically the same, the picture is from Youtube 

But the software was also questioned about privacy security. Previously, Wemagine.AI’s privacy policy stated that it would not sell or expose user information to third parties for any purpose, but it also stated that it might be provided to cooperating advertisers, which caused some people’s privacy concerns. Since then, Wemagine.AI updated its statement stating that in order to protect the privacy of users, photos will be automatically deleted within 24 to 48 hours after uploading. You can also turn off the App tracking function on your mobile phone to prevent ad tracking.

In general, if you are a person who likes to make fun of your own photos, this software is still worth playing. At least it can round out our ordinary people’s “daydream” of being animated by Disney and Pixar.
