Likee has launched a brand new effect named ComicBeats enabling users to create their real time American-comic-style avatar.
Launched under hashtag #CartoonKori, the effect creates a comic avatar with a real-time adaptation of facial expressions taking user's facial details and subtle expressions, reviving them vividly with a personalized touch thanks to cutting-edge AI technology.
Users will be able to create cool and fashionable eye-catching posters with their Likee IDs. The feature provides a free and simple yet elegant approach in contrast to what other short video platform offer.
The effects simply triggered by nodding, smiling or stretching out your palm. The effect has been designed in a manner that users will be able to apply it easily while creating a singing or dancing video.
While some popular celebrities from Bangladesh, such as actresses Arifa Parvin Zaman Moushumi, Mumtaheena Chowdhury Toya and Sallha Khanam Nadia have already joined the celebration by creating videos using the effect, many more are slated to join the fun bandwagon in near future.
Notably, a few celebrities in Russia and Indonesia have already showcased their creativity by making their comic avatars.
Following in-depth research by Likee's R&D teams, the algorithm has been optimized so that users can enjoy the effects irrespective of the technical prowess of a mobile phone.
The effect can also adapt to different facial features, skin colours and clothing styles, ensuring a more localized approach.
The combination of short-video and poster format makes the videos easily sharable across different social platforms.
Likee spokesperson said, "ComicBeats is deeply rooted in the comic cultural phenomenon that's universally applicable to the younger generation. Likee has shown its ambition to leverage effects to boost a business model for collaborations with global brands."
Based on Likee's philosophy of 'Let You Shine', the effect inspires creativity and lets users express themselves in as diverse ways as possible.
