    Link: Emily Is Not Real - CGI Is Getting Better - Her face is CGI. One can only wonder what the porn industry will do with this new and improved technology.

    That`s creepy.

    It really amazes me how complex facial movements are, especially in talking and how the mouth and jaw move.

    All i can think is, "OH MY GOD, this will be so cool when applied to The Sims!"

    really good but her eyes were dead. I wonder if this is because the emotion or soul shown through human eyes is nigh on impossible to recreate with technology or perhaps I am romanticising it. :|

    Besides, in the age of High Definition image and 10 plus megapixel cameras, CGI animation is only good for fantasy settings. Real people look realer on film that in real life.

    I can still tell it is CGI, and not because I was told as much. Humans are not intuitive enough to account for every little detail, and so any lengthy, continuous animation has oddities. It`s too smooth, for one.

    the quality of the film is also used to trick you, but if you watch the way she speaks it was easy to tell it was fake. There is a lot of work to be done. It is getting better, but if you really couldn`t tell, there is something wrong with you.

    holy cow. this is amazing. looks totally real, but that little ounce of thought of "it`s actually not real" keeps getting at me, but only very slightly. they`ve got to be using that new facial-screening technique. emily looks a little like kiera knightley.

    The teeth look a little off but its great. Its not CGI as such because its a bit obviously gonna be based off someone`s real movements, but still, VERY good.

    When computer games, especially shooting/action games get people like this in them... I dont think I`d be comfortable playing them anymore!

    Arkenoid, if she blinks too much it is because the face actress blinks too much. This is just like motion capturing, only more detailed.

    Let`s see here, porn applications off the top of my head:
    Anonymous porn acting. You contribute the body, they add a face.
    Custom-made celebrity flicks. Who do YOU want to see doing a Paris Hilton? Or doing Paris Hilton for that matter?
    "Underage" porn. Adult actors styled to look to be in their early teens.

    You too opiebreath.!!!

    Anyway, back to the video. They need to work a bit on the facial movements. Do something with those eyes and the mouth was way too big for such a pointy face... it was remarkable, and I would just think that the girl was trying too hard to be posh if I hadn`t known.
