Video anonymization by face detection

Project description

Deface: Video anonymization by face detection


From PyPI (official releases):

$ pip install deface

Current git master:

$ pip install 'git+'


Basic usage after installing the deface package:

$ deface -i <input.mp4> -o <output.mp4>

Show help and all options:

$ deface -h

Hardware acceleration with ONNX Runtime

CUDA (on Nvidia GPUs)

If you have a CUDA-capable GPU, you can enable GPU acceleration by installing the relevant packages:

$ pip install onnx onnxruntime-gpu

If the onnxruntime-gpu package is found and a GPU is available, the face detection network is automatically offloaded to the GPU. This can significantly improve the overall processing speed.

Other platforms

If your machine doesn't have a CUDA-capable GPU but you want to accelerate computation on another hardware platform (e.g. Intel CPUs), you can look into the available options in the ONNX Runtime build matrix.
