VQFR (ECCV 2022 Oral)

This paper aims at investigating the potential and limitation of Vector-Quantized (VQ) dictionary for blind face restoration.
We propose a new framework VQFR – incoporating the Vector-Quantized Dictionary and the Parallel Decoder. Compare with previous arts, VQFR produces more realistic facial details and keep the comparable fidelity.
