Photorealistic Faces Coming to a Video Game Near You


Inanimate objects in video games have long been quite realistic, but facial expressions on human characters haven’t been nearly as believable. For a new game called “L.A. Noire” by Rockstar Games, a newly developed piece of technology called MotionScan was used in which real actors are surrounded by a whopping 32 cameras to accurately document both their body motions and facial expressions.
