SMALR means "SMAL with Refinement". To estimate animal 3D shape and texture we exploit the SMAL model to estimate pose and provide an initial shape estimation. Then, in the refinement step we deform the estimated initial shape to better match image evidence. Here is the SMAL model we have used for initialization and the CVPR 2018 paper results.

    • We provide:
      • the SMAL model (smal_CVPR2018.pkl)
      • additional model data (smal_CVPR2018_data.pkl)

      The SMAL model is similar to the one you can download at, where you can also find instructions and demo code for usage.
