Stuck on an issue?

And, if you’re still stuck at the end, we’re happy to hop on a call to see how we can help out.

Is there any way to download the FAN and FAN-D before using them in a script?

See original GitHub issue

Issue Description

When I run

fa = face_alignment.FaceAlignment(face_alignment.LandmarksType._3D, enable_cuda=False, flip_input=False)

, it downloads the models for the first time and takes quite a while. Is there any way I can skip this? Like manually downloading the required files and putting them in a specified folder?

Let me make a conclusion that how we can download the model files in advance and load them. After you use pip install face-alignment install the face-alignment package 1.0.0, the default face-alignment data directory is /root/.face_alignment/data if you are using the root in a docker. In general, you can use cd ~ && pwd to check the detailed user data directory, and the directory where you should put per-trained model files will be [user_data_dir]/.face_alignment/data, i.e., using

cd $(cd ~ && pwd)/.face_alignment/data

to directly access the directory. If the directory does not exist, you can make it by yourself.

The necessary model files are as follows:

Hi @IAmSuyogJadhav,

Yes, you can. Download links: https://www.adrianbulat.com/downloads/python-fan/2DFAN-4.pth.tar https://www.adrianbulat.com/downloads/python-fan/3DFAN-4.pth.tar https://www.adrianbulat.com/downloads/python-fan/depth.pth.tar

You can copy them in your home folder in .face_alignment folder (You can also check your existing installation just to be sure, its hidden by default).
