New Facial Capture Technology Used on GTAIV, MGS4, Killzone Explored by Image Metrics

Image Metrics shows how their new facial capture technology works on GTA 4 and other game productions.

"Image Metrics has bridged the Uncanny Valley, developing a superior facial capture and animation system that creates facial animation with far greater accuracy, as much as seven times faster than key framing, and they only need video files and a facial rig and 3D model to get started."

The gap between realism and gaming is practically diminished at this point. If I had to vote for my favorite in that video, it would have to be GTAIV and Killzone.

Damn...and lets not forget MGS4.
*Waiting patiently for that boob mini game*

:( i wish i didn't already know that. NO more MGS4 spoilers PLEASE.

MGS4 is looking to have the best in game cut scenes yet.

decapitator3539d ago (Edited 3539d ago )

Oh man, am sorry about that then. But I dont think a boob should be a spoiler for you. I mean its a BOOB son...:)

EDIT: Am sorry guys, if I have spoiled it for ya.

I listened to that podcast also. I wish I didn't. Know I am even more eager to play MGS4 so please no more spoilers. Its gonna be tough since several people in the game media got a change to play through the game. Out of these videos the Samburu Warrior was the most awesome. I hope they are using that in a game. We need something like that. A game with African warriors that take place back in the time of Shaka Zulu would be really cool and something new.

How is this new if its been used in Gears 1 and many UT3 games?

yesah3539d ago

I wonder if Mass Effect is using that as well?

decapitator3539d ago

Possibly but the article makes no mention of that though. But with the graphics that the game had, I would not be surprised if it was using it or something similar to it.

InMyOpinion3539d ago

The facial animation in the article video looks amazing, especially when you see the split screen with the human and the target animation. Lifelike, to say the least =)

Massacre3539d ago

Damn, that animated girls animation look pretty slick.

BilI Gates3539d ago

Is that from Killzone 2? Anybody know?

decapitator3539d ago

NO. That is the trailer for Killzone: Liberation for PSP.

BilI Gates3539d ago

Thanks for clearing that up.

decapitator3539d ago

No problem. Glad I could help..:)

ThaGeNeCySt3539d ago

Samburu Warrior.... ahh... i was looking for that one to show to a few friends.
