    They ran a show on a facebook identity theft here in Australia last night. It was on the today tonight show. I don't usually watch this but was sick in bed and couldn't find the remote. But luckily I didn't as this was quite interesting.

    The link to the show is http://au.news.yahoo.com/today-tonight/lifestyle/article/-/12440266/facebook-identity-theft

    You can watch the video there.

    A quick synopsis though is they grabbed her photos off facebook and then using video software superimposed her face onto a similar featured (blond, skinny, hot) porn actress video from the web. They then advertise her as a webcam girl. So they can run their own webcam site without actresses.

    Obviously illegal as its identity theft. But I had never known that there was software that could superimpose a persons face onto an actress in a movie. The software looked very cool and obviously could be used for other black hat techniques which are not illegal. (super imposing my own face on a video).

    Apparently they found the guy running it in an overseas country and he said he was making (i think) $1300 a week off it.

    Anyone know what the software is that can do this the best?

    I'll admit I do know google is my friend and I did search it and read a bit but there is so much software out there. Has anyone done it and what is the best software / method to do it ?

    Wouldn't it look just odd though? a moving video with a still face? o_O or am I being thick?

    Anyway, you can do that with Adobe AfterEffects (with superimposed pictures or video), don't know how to do it on the fly!

    I believe the face moves as well. It just imposes the features so that it looks very much like the person.
