Default If you thought Valve or Crytek had good facial animation look at this!

Game called L.A. Noire. From Rockstar and Team Bondi. Never heard of them.
I couldn't find any other post about it.
Coming May 17th 2011.








Edit: OMG it's not coming to PC, I'm so pissed.

Saw this a few months ago and I was very amazed. Animation in general is an area in games where there is still large room for improvement, so once games like this become the norm, many "current" games are going to look a generation behind. I'm pretty excited about this game.

BTW, from what I gathered, Team Bondi are a Sydney, Australia based division of Rockstar. Bondi is a suburb in Sydney.

It's a interesting tech, where you actually generate the geometry as well from the captured information.
This means that the character heads are basically a 3d videos of the subject.
So no capturing of performance and moving it to liara from Mass Effect, you would have to put makeup to the actor so she would look like liara and then act the scene.

Also it is pretty clear that the shaders on characters faces are quite simple and the texture resolution doesn't really hold up. (Understandable as this tech uses a lot of storage.)

It΄s also probably pretty difficult, if not impossible, to use another face then the acctual actors, to accurately transfer the topological capture to a different mesh without affecting the face too much.
And there is a disconnect between the face and body at times, since it΄s recorded separately.

But it looks much much better then having skinned joints to map mocap on.
It is probably very expensive though, which is probably why the rest of the game isnt as hot as other modern titles.

The media lab here at MIT has been doing things like this for a while, but this is the first time I have ever seen it used in a game. It looks awesome.
