Performance – facial animation in video games starts to rival movies

Performance

If you want to take a look at the future of video game animation, especially in relation to facial animation, which has always been the tricky bit, then take a shufti at this short video trailer about Rockstar’s new title L.A. Noire.

The game designers have come up with a new system called Performance, which combines some uber clever motion capture and 3D rendering to deliver…well awesome. Take a look, and fear for the future of the movie business once this stuff starts to become indistinguishable from real life.

  Developer Diary: The Technology Behind Performance. Raising the bar of video game realism, facial expressions, motion capture, and 3-D rendering all come together in the immersive effect of the L.A. Noire story.
