A deepfake video is video footage that is not real but appears more lifelike than traditional “fake videos”, so much so, that they can be very hard to identify. As technology advances, it is becoming more difficult to separate the real from the fake due to developments in video editing software. Deep fake videos tend to include footage of a person, with another face imposed onto their body.
In recent years, deep fake videos have gone viral and their use has increased across social media, with many celebrities sharing funny deep fake videos of themselves for entertainment in a bid to interact with their followers.
Professional deep fake videos can be used to commit fraud, sway political feeling or create political tension, and it is these videos that require professional editing and software. Videos like the ones shared by celebrities such as Miley Cyrus on the other hand are both simple and fun to create and can be made in a few minutes.
In short, yes you can! There are many apps available on the market that can be downloaded to your device in order for you to try out some deep fake videos of your own. While they may not be up to the standard of believable fake news – they can take your face, or faces from photos of your friends and family, and add them to funny videos, pictures or GIFS for endless hours of entertainment. Here are some ideas of what you can use face swap online applications for:
Ever wanted a photo with your favourite celebrity? Well, with face swap apps your dream can turn into a reality. Simply choose a photo of them with their other half, or co-star, and let the app swap their face with yours.
