We present a novel end-to-end framework for facial performance capture given a monocular video of an actor's face. Our framework are comprised of 2 parts. First, to extract the information in the frames, we optimize a triplet loss to learn the embedding space which ensures the semantically closer facial expressions are closer in the embedding space and the model can be transferred to distinguish the expressions that are not presented in the training dataset. Second, the embeddings are fed into
