☕ David Antoine Short VFX breakdown, facial rendering (mid 2015). There is still that uncanny valley making it look artificial but it's pretty impressive. I wonder if and when will they reach that point where we won't be able to differentiate between a CGI character and a real human... youtube.com/watch?...

😀 Tom Pretty good. Yeah, we'll probably get to that point pretty soon. In this veraion, I could tell be the facial and body movements that they weren't natural.

☕ David Antoine Yes it's not perfect, the more "she" moves, the more your spot the CGI... But pretty good indeed...

Mark Dain Holy hell if this is the future of graphics... I can barely tell she's not real! Imagine a day where characters in games or movies can be created exactly how someone imagines. I've also seen some leaps (of a sort) in speech synthesis: youtube.com/watch?... combine these two and Skyrim would have a field day.
☕ David Antoine And that VFX tech is nearly 2 years old... I guess they will inevitably make that looking 100% real in the (near ?) future. I'm just not sure what will be the balance between good and bad applications, like every tech... But I would not mind to see that used for games. And Realivox is impressive too !
😀 Tom Just imagine someone doing that with normal speech, and your voice. What about the President's/Prime Minister's/King's/etc voice? "Fake News" is going to be a lot more worrisome in the future. Combine that with facial rendering, and you could easily have a convincing video of a world leader announcing that aliens have landed.
