A useful use for deepfakes has finally been found. And it's not even porn

British startup Flawless has invented a technology that will help deepfake neural networks find application in professional cinema. His team developed a program called TrueSync, which analyzes actors’ faces and changes the movement of their lips depending on the language in which the film is dubbed.

As a result, the characters can realistically speak any language, the image is exactly synchronized with the voice acting. The Flawless promo shows several examples – including Robert De Niro, who speaks his lines in different languages, and each time he looks like he spoke that language during filming.

In some countries of the world, it is not customary to voice films just because the translation does not coincide with the movements of the actors’ lips, which looks unnatural. Usually in such countries films are shown with the original soundtrack, which is accompanied by subtitles. Flawless technology is designed to solve this problem, and with the right choice of voice actors, films can be dubbed almost perfectly. The only problem is that in the videos passed through TrueSync, as in any deepfake video, slight artifacts are noticeable. The lips seem to be animated and move like video game characters, and not like living people.
