Easily remove the FakeApp logo from your videos - Dengar - 02-22-2018

I know there's a powershell script for this but I didn't know about it so I came up with my own method. If you also don't feel like learning Python commands and/or are having trouble with the new open source MyFakeApp as I am right now (I so want that to get better), this might be helpful.

It might seem long & involved when I explain it here but really that's just the first time setup. Once you get it down it's really quick to fly through it.

The idea I had was to mass resize all the pictures with a border on the right that the FakeApp logo would be applied to, then simply crop them again when the faces had been swapped. This is more or less what I ended up doing. I'll save you all the research of how to figure it out though.

The guides I first found for batch adding borders were for Photoshop which I didn't know & didn't feel like learning. So I looked for a better way & found a simple program that does that and really only that called PearlMountain Image Resizer Pro (aka AnyPic Image Resizer Pro). It's not free, and I won't tell you that you can easily find a torrent of the full version with Google, because that would be wrong.

You just start it up & point to the the folder with all your extracted frames, then select them all, choose "To PNG", then add border tab on the left. Through trial & error I figured out that for a 720p video you need to add exactly 360 pixels to the right side. Hit start and now all your images will be 1640x720.

Now open a command prompt, navigate to that folder, and turn them back into a video with ffmpeg by using

ffmpeg -r 30 -f image2 -i out%d.png -vcodec libx264 -crf 15 -pix_fmt yuv420p VideoName.mp4

Use that video with FakeApp to have it extract the frames & generate an alignments.json file for the new positions of the faces.

After conversion, you will see that the FakeApp logo has been applied to the white border on the right side.

At this point I hit a snag. I thought I could use the same program to remove the borders from the pictures again, but it doesn't work that way. So I realized it would have to be done with the video itself. Again I found a lot of complicated guides for things like Premiere but I knew there had to be a simpler one & I found it. It's called Wondershare Filmora. This isn't free either, and I still won't tell you to look for a torrent with the full version that's easy to find, because that would be wrong.


Filmora has an option to crop the video to exactly 16:9 or 4:3, justified to the left, so it's ridiculously easy.

After that just export the video & you're done.

I hope this helps others that are having problems with the open source MyFakeApp and/or don't feel like learning Python.

Looks like your images aren't working! But from what I read it makes sense because I come from a video background (kinda). I'll be using this method once I get my first successful view up (currently training)

That's odd, I can see my images. Can anyone else?


Re: Easily remove the FakeApp logo from your videos - Stickyman - 02-22-2018

Yep! I can see them just fine.

Also, thanks for the guide! Will be handy.

No problem!

@dpfks, I think the problem is on your end. Can you load tinypic.com?
