  • Added new improved identification algorithms: method7.7, method6.7, method8.7.

NOTE: These methods require results of FDA facial landmarks estimation algorithm, so if sample was created with different point set, facial landmarks will be re-estimated by FDA algorithm during Recognizer::processing. Also note that result of FDA is more than points position, so samples that created with Capturer::manualCapture(..., <vector of points>) functions will be treated the same way even if that <vector of points> contain FDA points set. So better use FDA capturers configurations, and use RawSample::saveWithoutImage and FacerecService::loadRawSampleWithoutImage instead of Capturer::manualCapture if possible.

  • Added new serialization functions: RawSample::saveWithoutImage and FacerecService::loadRawSampleWithoutImage.
