FreezeD (Optional)

At the ’ Freeze the Discriminator (FreezeD)’ Colab

On the ‘Fine-tuning StyleGAN on Anime Faces’ section

there is a "AssertionError: ", on this line:
—> Dataset(‘data/animeface-character-dataset/thumb’, n_classes=n_classes),

Thanks, @Marku!

This issue has been reported to the developers to fix, although it’s been a little while so I just pinged them again to check in on it.

Here’s the post where the problem was originally reported:

Hi @Wendy @Marku ,

We working on this issue and will try to fix this shortly. Sorry for the inconvenience.


It seems the .zip dataset has been removed from the source website.

# Download Anime Face dataset to `data` folder
if not os.path.isdir('data/animeface-character-dataset'):
    !unzip -d data

Gives the following assertion error:
