Image Metrics Reveals Facial Capture in Grand Theft Auto IV, Metal Gear Solid 4, More

9 04 2008

Image Metrics has revealed today their new facial capture technology. They show in a video of how the tecnology works in games such as Grand Theft Auto IV, KILLZONE 2, Metal Gear Solid 4, LAIR, and Unreal Tournament III. The brief KILLZONE 2 footage they show seems to be new, and looks the best of all the games demoed.

“Image Metrics has bridged the Uncanny Valley, developing a superior facial capture and animation system that creates facial animation with far greater accuracy, as much as seven times faster than key framing, and they only need video files and a facial rig and 3D model to get started.”
