Nvidia tech demo shows off new FaceWorks tech

Wednesday, 20th March 2013 22:56 GMT By Brenna Hillier

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.

Thanks, PCGamesN.

    That whole video was pretty interesting. Reminded me of a similar presentation I attended over 17 years ago, except at that one the sample CGI was of a maxi pad flexing its wings (for an ad) which took several months to animate…computer graphics have sure come a long way since.
