Two weeks remaining in the class and I finally was able to make progress on writing my own style transfer code. I didn't write it from scratch, I rewrote the existing code I found online to improve the code quality and make it fit my workflow. I'm going to continue working to make further improvements over the next few days.
Right now I can do a style transfer on a single image. I have some of the code written for videos. I'll finish that in the next day or two.
For now, here's a test. I converted this:
I compared it to the existing code and my code gets the same results. Style transfers aren't that complicated once you get the hang of it.
It's critical I understand how this code works so I can write my own code to do style transfers for 360 video. I'll get there. Maybe not in the next two weeks, but I'll get there eventually.
