UFPR-3DFE Dataset

The present dataset, called UFPR-3D Facial Emotions (3DFE) contains 3D avatar base emotions generated through automatic synthesis.

The full dataset has 88.6 MB and 69 files. The format of the files follows the 3D object wavefront format with the vertices information and their coordinates. Files of type .OBJ can be used in any 3D editor or library that recognizes geometric objects. The specifications regarding the emotion and output method are given below. Files of type .MTL consist of a material that can use mapping coordinates for UVW textures.
