Updates

  • 06/18/2021 evaluation code of PCK (person-centric) and PCK_abs (camera-centric), and pre-trained model for MuPoTS dataset tested and released

Installation

Dependencies

Pytorch >= 1.5

Python >= 3.6

Create an enviroment.

conda create -n 3dmpp python=3.6
conda activate 3dmpp

Install the latest version of pytorch (tested on pytorch 1.5 - 1.7) based on your OS and GPU driver installed following install pytorch. For example, command to use on Linux with CUDA 11.0 is like:

conda install pytorch torchvision cudatoolkit=11.0 -c pytorch

Install dependencies

pip install - r requirements.txt

Build the Fast Gaussian Map tool:

cd lib/fastgaus
python setup.py build_ext --inplace
cd ../..

Models and Testing Data

Pre-trained Models

Download the pre-trained model and processed human keypoint files here, and unzip the downloaded zip file to this project's root directory, two folders are expected to see after doing that (i.e., ./ckpts and ./mupots).

MuPoTS Dataset

MuPoTS eval set is needed to perform evaluation as the results reported in Table 3 in the main paper, which is available on the MuPoTS dataset website. You need to download the mupots-3d-eval.zip file, unzip it, and run get_mupots-3d.sh to download the dataset. After the download is complete, a MultiPersonTestSet.zip is avaiable, ~5.6 GB. Unzip it and move the folder MultiPersonTestSet to the root directory of the project to perform evaluation on MuPoTS test set. Now you should see the following directory structure.

${3D-Multi-Person-Pose_ROOT}
|-- ckpts              <-- the downloaded pre-trained Models
|-- lib
|-- MultiPersonTestSet <-- the newly added MuPoTS eval set
|-- mupots             <-- the downloaded processed human keypoint files
|-- util

|-- calculate_mupots_btmup.py
|-- other python code, LICENSE, and README files

MuPoTS dataset evaluation

3D Multi-Person Pose Estimation Evaluation on MuPoTS Dataset

The following table is similar to Table 3 in the main paper, where the quantitative evaluations on MuPoTS-3D dataset are provided (best performance in bold). Evaluation instructions to reproduce the results (PCK and PCK_abs) are provided in the next section.

Run evaluation on MuPoTS dataset with estimated 2D joints as input

We split the whole pipeline into several separate steps to make it more clear for the users.

python calculate_mupots_topdown_pts.py
python calculate_mupots_topdown_depth.py
python calculate_mupots_btmup.py
python calculate_mupots_integrate.py

Please note that python calculate_mupots_btmup.py is going to take a while (30-40 minutes depending on your machine).

To evaluate the person-centric 3D multi-person pose estimation:

python eval_mupots_pck.py

After running the above code, the following PCK (person-centric, pelvis-based origin) value is expected, which matches the number reported in Table 3, PCK = 89 (percentage) in the paper.

...
Seq: 18
Seq: 19
Seq: 20
PCK_MEAN: 0.8994453169938017

To evaluate camera-centric (i.e., camera coordinates) 3D multi-person pose estimation:

python eval_mupots_pck_abs.py

After running the above code, the following PCK_abs (camera-centric) value is expected, which matches the number reported in Table 3, PCK_abs = 48 (percentage) in the paper.
