Nvidia tech demo shows off new FaceWorks tech
New facial rendering tech FaceWorks was shown off at the Nvidia GPU Technology Conference this week; see the impressive real-time demo in action through the break.
For those of us at home, the interesting part of the video begins at about 8:40. It’s worth noting that this isn’t a pre-rendered demo but real time footage. It’s not the most complicated scenes, it’s running on a gaming rig beyond most of our budgets, and a real game wouldn’t be able to devote this much power to a single face, but it’s still a pretty amazing bit of graphics artistry.
