Face Analysis for ComfyUI Description

Face Analysis for ComfyUI leverages DLib to compute Euclidean and Cosine distances between faces, requiring the installation of the Shape Predictor and Face Recognition model from the Install models menu.

Face Analysis for ComfyUI Introduction

ComfyUI_FaceAnalysis is an extension designed to help AI artists evaluate and compare facial images. By leveraging advanced face recognition technologies like and , this extension calculates the Euclidean and Cosine distances between two faces. These distances provide a quantitative measure of how similar or different two faces are, which can be particularly useful for artists working with AI-generated faces. Whether you are refining a character's appearance or ensuring consistency across different images, ComfyUI_FaceAnalysis offers a reliable way to assess facial similarity.

How Face Analysis for ComfyUI Works

At its core, ComfyUI_FaceAnalysis uses face recognition models to extract facial features from images. These features are then compared to calculate distances:

  • Euclidean Distance: Think of this as a straight line between two points in a multi-dimensional space. It measures the "as-the-crow-flies" distance between two faces.
  • Cosine Distance: This measures the angle between two vectors (representing faces) in a multi-dimensional space. It helps in understanding the orientation or direction of the faces relative to each other. By comparing these distances, you can determine how closely two faces resemble each other. For example, a smaller Euclidean distance indicates higher similarity, while a larger Cosine distance suggests greater dissimilarity.

Face Comparison

  • Batch Processing: You can send a batch of reference images to the node and compare them against a fourth reference image. This is useful for establishing a baseline similarity score.
  • Customizable Models: Choose between DLib and InsightFace models based on your needs. DLib is known for its robustness, while InsightFace offers state-of-the-art performance.


  • Model Selection: Depending on your requirements, you can select different models for face recognition. For instance, DLib offers various landmark predictors (68, 5, and 81 landmarks) that can be used to fine-tune the analysis.
  • Distance Metrics: Customize the analysis by choosing between Euclidean and Cosine distances, or use both for a comprehensive comparison.


  • Graphical Output: Visualize the comparison results with graphical outputs, making it easier to interpret the data and make informed decisions.

Face Analysis for ComfyUI Models

DLib Models

  • Shape Predictor 68 Landmarks: Ideal for detailed facial analysis, capturing 68 key points on the face.
  • Face Predictor 5 Landmarks: A simpler model that captures 5 key points, useful for quick and less detailed analysis.
  • Face Predictor 81 Landmarks: Provides the most detailed analysis with 81 key points.
  • Face Recognition ResNet Model: A robust model for face recognition tasks.

InsightFace Models

  • ArcFace: Known for its high accuracy in face recognition, suitable for tasks requiring precise facial similarity measurements. Each model has its strengths, and the choice depends on the level of detail and accuracy you need for your project.

Troubleshooting Face Analysis for ComfyUI

Common Issues and Solutions

  1. Model Not Found: Ensure that the required models are downloaded and placed in the correct directory (dlib for DLib models).
  2. Incorrect Distance Values: Verify that the reference images are correctly loaded and that the faces are properly aligned.
  3. Performance Issues: If the analysis is slow, consider using a less detailed model (e.g., 5 landmarks instead of 68 or 81).

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: Can I use both DLib and InsightFace models simultaneously?
  • A: Yes, you can install and use both models, switching between them as needed.
  • Q: How do I interpret the distance values?
  • A: Smaller Euclidean distances indicate higher similarity, while larger Cosine distances suggest greater dissimilarity.
