GamesBeat shows videos of Digital Ira, the result of Nvidia's Faceworks technology for rendering human faces. Does it cross the uncanny valley? See for yourself.
I think Ira looks much better than Dawn.
Pretty soon we won't need people in games!
You do know that people in games aren't real?
Think he means we won't need people for face animation. can't wait for ps5!
I know. I was just playing :)
Ira actually impressed me with the animation system. It feels so lifelike...
tech demos looks always amazing i want to see demos from upocomming games
real life faces will bankrupt! CGI will bankrupt! GPUs will profit!
about 2 tflops of power used to create this, ps4 has about 2tflops of power so in theory this is capable on the ps4 (in theory)i hope it is anyway!
2tflops were used to render the face only, I really can't see PS4 achieve same level in a full game with environment, AI, and physics.
Latest gpu are reaching 5tflops so how powerfull a gpu must be to actually run a game using that kind of face ingame. Its just a pointless tech demo.
Wait you guys are seriously discussing rendering in terms of tflops?
@papashango I have a very very basic knowledge about CPU/GPUs, compute power...etc so expect some few mistakes here and there Lol. but it was clear in the video that nVidia said that we achieved this level of performance using 2tflops, so I think nVidia knows what they're talking about. unless they're wrong and you are right?! we might never know .
AnteCash is right,it's a pointless(yet amazing) tech demo,if they pushed almost half the tflops on the titan for only one face,how will that work out on a vast world with so many NPCs running around !? Even their fairy & ship tech demos(although again really amazing) didn't show as many things running in them.
Thats where talentend devs come into work. They turned low poly models into realistic faces this gen, so I predict they will take the most out of these high poly models. And motion capture will continue to evolve and help get that hyper realistic feeling. Just look at L.A. Noire animations and Uncharted 3 facial details. All this gen and amazing considering the hardware they are running on. Or Beyond, that game is pushing the boundaries of lifelike models.
@GamersRulz It's not that they are wrong, it's just you can't compare AMD FLOPS and NVIDIA FLOPS. Seeing as how Nvidia isn't in the console market. This news doesn't apply to console gamers on N4G. All a TFLOP means is having the ability process a trillion floating point operations per second. Take Super Pi for example. It's a popular CPU benchmark that tells you how fast your CPU processes a certain number of PI calculations per second. Sometimes Intel and AMD come close in this benchmark but applied to real world applications (video games, editing) one chip almost aways does it better. It all boils down to architecture.
If you have seen the QD tech demo, you will know that the ps4 is more than capable.
no it doesnt and no it wont, lmao this is pc ftw
All these things tend to fall apart once you instruct an art department to model 600 NPC faces. That's when the plasticine comes out.
That hurt my stomach, stop it. lmfao.
Very cool. When the light hits the face it is easier to see the lifelike resemblance to a real face.
Realistic face rendering-playstation 5...not 4 since we cant even get out of 60fps and 720p diarrhea
Quantic Dream says hi!
Obviously you haven't seen this: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Oh, and the PS3 is not doing too bad either (also running in real time): http://www.youtube.com/watc...
theres gonna be a point where graphics is gonna be at the highest. where its not how detailed the world is but the size of it. i can see where like a map like GTA4 is gonna be very detailed that nearly every building is accessible and thats the limit. i can see that in 10 years we will reach that point. soon VR pods will be made to to add another peripheral to an already maxed game.
dosnt involve ps4, not interested, LOL, though seriously it looks great...ly disturbing :D
Didn't the ps4 event showed this kind of tech already? remember the Old man's face?? its more impressive because of the wrinkles. Kojima once said the hardest face to make is that of an old man unlike the fair skin of a young person. And nvidia bashing the ps4 for having an outdated low end pc architecture.
