A group of live streamers recently used AI technology to show what they believe the Kardashians would look like without ‘plastic surgery.’ These online streamers are behind the Twitch show Vandahood Live, and they were reportedly curious to see whether the AI technology would correctly predict what Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Kourtney Kardashian would look like if they had kept their original faces.
The AI predictions
Vandahood Live’s video clip reportedly showed the AI technology depiction of the famous family without plastic surgery, which has now amassed around 2.5 million views on TikTok. The said streamers came from video and 3D visual effects backgrounds and stated that it took them almost a week to make the video.
Keith from Vandalhood reportedly told Petapixel, “We used three different AI software and two different standard graphics software and a full week to pull it off. We had to take a different approach for each member of the family since each one underwent different changes over the years.
Keith further said, “For Kylie we used Deep Face Lab and for two days trained an AI model of her face pre-surgery and set it to match the proportions of her current face. And then in Adobe After Effects, we manually reduced her cheek filler as they went outside the portions of her “before” face. Then lastly we ran it through DaVinci Resolve to grade and match her original skin tone.”
Keith continued, “For Khloe we again used Deep Face Lab and trained an AI model of her face pre-surgery and set it to match the proportions of her current face. Then ran a few frames through Faceapp to generate her original fuller cheeks then ran those frames through another AI called Ebsynth to apply it to the whole video. And then again DaVinci Resolve for the original skin tone.”
Kim and Kourtney
Keith went on to add that for Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, the makers worked with the Deep Face Lab and did minor corrections and skin tone corrections with the DaVinci Resolve.
