The improvement directions of AnimeGANv2 mainly include the following 4 points:  
  • 1. Solve the problem of high-frequency artifacts in the generated image.

  • 2. It is easy to train and directly achieve the effects in the paper.

  • 3. Further reduce the number of parameters of the generator network. (generator size: 8.17 Mb), The lite version has a smaller generator model.

  • 4. Use new high-quality style data, which come from BD movies as much as possible.

1. Inference

python test.py --checkpoint_dir checkpoint/generator_Hayao_weight --test_dir dataset/test/HR_photo --save_dir Hayao/HR_photo

2. Convert video to anime

python video2anime.py --video video/input/お花見.mp4 --checkpoint_dir checkpoint/generator_Hayao_weight --output video/output

3. Train

1. Download vgg19


2. Download Train/Val Photo dataset


3. Do edge_smooth

python edge_smooth.py --dataset Hayao --img_size 256

4. Train

python train.py --dataset Hayao --epoch 101 --init_epoch 10

5. Extract the weights of the generator

python get_generator_ckpt.py --checkpoint_dir ../checkpoint/AnimeGANv2_Shinkai_lsgan_300_300_1_2_10_1 --style_name Shinkai
