Really nice. Very good information about what current animation software is all about.

Just as a question. In the mona Lisa, how much percentage was it female and how much male, according to the model?

even though the premise of the book was fiction

Why do we want to remove job availability for people? Frees up time? No, it makes for people in poverty and people who are bored and both of these resort to stupid and criminal activity.

Just because we can, doesn`t mean we should.

This 3D face is obviously not what I would argue first on, but it applies, if semi-distantly.

Sorta.. this is probably a bad place to put it, that whole 3D face deal, but other examples.. bombs, biological weapons, A.I... sure, we humans have a quest to learn, but in learning things are exposed that are better left not. This 3D face thing.. give it enough time and you`ll have issues like in the movie Face Off, yes? Science Fiction isn`t so far off. Just because we -can- do it doesn`t mean we should. Quality of life is changing dramatically these days, some for the better but quite frankly, as I see it, a lot for the worse. I could talk all day on it so I`ll try to spare you.

Why do we want to open a Pandora`s box.. like 3D faces for the minor benefit of entertainment (and maybe identification of criminals) with major side effects of losing trust in photos, movies, jobs for celebrities, jobs in general, and opening a can of worms on the A.I. front?

The greatest resource on this planet is human life. And for some reason we want to replace it with machines... why?

wow. amazing, especially considering that still images give you little to nothing to work with in terms of a 3d render.

Three immediate comments/thoughts...

1- Just because we can doesn`t mean we should.

2- Photos, and videos.. are just almost useless as evidence, or will be in a few years. There`s no `original` footage anymore, it`s all computer edited, quirked, changed and adjusted.. and now it`s faked.

3- Imagine a single A.I. bot brain... that finds access to this software. Enuff sed.

There will come a time when the faces of popular dead and living actors will be licensed by studios and mapped to the faces of generic players in a movie. Maybe studios will even invent faces that they think will sell movies and map these to anonymous actors, so you could have any number of actors playing a single movie star. With voice synthesis and cgi, absolutely nothing you see in a movie will be real anymore, yet it will be even more convincing. Oliver Stone will be a very happy man!

It`s proprietary software developed by a university, you can`t get it. Also people will never be replaced by 3d, because it`s just trying to replicate something REAL it`s easier in many instances just to incorporate the real thing, espetialy with modles.

With leveling cities, then there may be some argument in favor of graphics emulation, but most times real actors are actually spliced into the emulation to give it a more real feel.

Sorry for the double post, but engelbert, I agree with you so much. I like life the way it is. I actually don`t want to be alive when there is magnetic roads and floating cars and less and less nature, more and more cities, virtual pets, and robot maids. Eh... might not happen for a few decades, but I just hope I`m not there to see it.

I can already do that with the first Sims deluxe edition. Its just not AS realistic. Its a special add on where you can create your own sim but there is a button in there where you can upload your own photo and then fix it to the points are right. Its awesome. I like sims 1 better then 2. I have both, but my computer is way to slow to take it. >_< Anyways yeah... sims is awesome.

So, any idea when this technology will become available to the public? I suppose the hard part would be the "scanning in" of 3D faces, you would probably need some expensive machine.

"Absolutely incredible! How long till we have old movie stars in new movies? We could have a Rocky Horror sequel with Tim Curry as he was in the 70s!"

We already have, Sky Captain featured a dead guy.

This is SO not done with Poser, and as frightening as this is it was done around 1999/2000.

> they kinda made the Mona Lisa look a litle manish.

It`s been proposed that the Mona Lisa is actually a self-portrait of Leonardo himself as the facial proportions match other images of him.

they should use this technology more in games, if they don`t already.

Huh. Now that they can simply manufacture any face they want, I suppose bodies are next? Who needs models or actors or real people anymore?

Looks like I`m out of a job or two.

I`ve seen this before--it`s done using Poser, which is a 3D rendering and animation program.

And as for the Mona Lisa looking "mannish?" She looks EXACTLY the same. You`re probably only just noticing it, canaryellow.

Oh cool I made it on here... There must be a crapload of back links because I submitted this 1 or 2 days ago... Oh and ironically right below this article (on digg) was an article about how they found the Mona Lisas grave and she was really the daughter of a carpenter named Lisa Geovardi or sumlikdat

This is actually very interesting. They should turn it into a game and post it on IAB.
And in the end, they kinda made the Mona Lisa look a litle manish.
