Learn how to use the Deepfake maker app ‘Familiar’? Using this you would create funny Gifs in under 3 minutes.
Opinion: Another day, another Deepfake maker app that surfaced on the internet. Days after the Back To the Future deepfake video featuring Robert Downey Jr and Tom holland came out, ‘Familiar‘ launched their Deepfake Gif maker and I must say its entertaining. Some of the Gifs that the app generated weren’t as expected, but it’s a fun app to kill some free time.
Deepfake is the term given to videos that are morphed using AI that craftily replaces your face onto the ones in the video. The end result is a real looking video with you being a part of it.
One of the most common fears of using Deepfake apps is that your facial recognition data could be misused. Should you be worried about this Deepfake maker app stealing your data? While we won’t know for sure, the app makers say that they won’t use the data for anything devious and the service is located in the United States. We are aware of the danger the technology presents, but this app seems like a step in making a complex technology easily accessible to the common folk.
What can you do with this ‘Familiar‘ deepfake maker?
Developed by John Snyder, the app lets you morph your image onto any Gif that you select from the available collection. Once you have uploaded your picture or click a photo with your face, the app saves your facial data.
The app uses Artificial Intelligence to morph the video to include your face (almost) accurately. You can use this to create funny gifs that are shareable with your friends for fun. The best part is that all of this can be done under 3 minutes and you don’t have to know anything technical.
