Default Teasing the new Unreal Engine 5 posted

This certainly has some eye-popping graphics. It's almost, but oh-so-close, to being realistic; the closest I've seen.
It will be available on many platforms in 2021, but the Playstation 5 might get the first titles.
CES 2021 could be interesting.
They've sure come a long way since we played SpaceWar in the 1960s !!!

Here is the teaser. It has quite a lot of blah-blah at the beginning but really gets going about 1/3 the way thru:

Indeed. Absolutely mindblowing! Dynamic global illumination!

I remember many years ago Nvidia said they would be able to render in real-time movie quality graphics. Pixar laughed in their general direction. They're not laughing now, but instead are using the tech in their own production workflows...

I just stumbled across this. The quality of detail in the video is incredible. Facial tones and details still seem a bit off. Too smooth.

I read something a while back which said actor James Dean would be rendered into a new movie, sometime in the future. I suspect there were a lot of legal and ethical hurdles to jump to do this.

It gets worse: Team Behind Digital James Dean Forms New Company to Resurrect Other Legends (EXCLUSIVE)
Quote:
The team that helped resurrect James Dean with visual effects for an upcoming Vietnam war movie isn’t done creating digital versions of famous actors and other celebrities: Intellectual property licensing specialist CMG Worldwide has merged with immersive content creation studio Observe Media to form Worldwide XR, a new company that aims to bring digital humans to traditional film as well as augmented and virtual reality.

Worldwide XR holds and represents the rights for more than 400 celebrities, athletes and sports teams. In addition to James Dean, it will also enable creators to bring back stars like Bettie Page, Burt Reynolds and Andre The Giant, sports legends like Lou Gehrig, and artists like Maya Angelou.

"Influencers will come and go, but legends will never die," said Worldwide XR CEO Travis Cloyd. CMG Worldwide CEO Mark Roesler is joining the new company as chairman and co-founder.
Back in the day, a series of TV commercials showed a glass being shattered when Ella Fitzgerald sustained a high note, and then asked the question, "Is it live, or is it Memorex?"

The CGI Masters of the Universe have taken this idea to the innermost circle of hell. It no longer matters who someone was or what they did. If they are digitally resurrected decades after their demise, people will see their CGI avatars selling toothpaste or whatever and think either "I wonder who that used to be" or "I'll bet they never would have done this while they were alive." And yes, Mr. Cloyd, legends will die. The very idea of legends will die. And it will be you, and those of your ilk, that killed it.

The bats look janky, as do quite a few of the other physics like some of the falling rocks and the way the character moves at times, but the demo isn't really about that IMO. Shame it's owned by Epic, the Oracle of the game dev world.

Are you sure you're not looking in a mirror?

Legends like Heston, Lancaster, Bryner, Grant, Nimoy, and so many others, need to remain legends. Even if these people were given permission, I do not if it would go over well with audiences.

Does the audience approval matter?
Didn't "Star Wars" do this with Carrie F. and Peter Cushing ?
Nimoy's son is discussing bringing Spock back.

If there is money to be made then they (whoever "they" are) will do it.

So if you (the collective you) don't like it then don't pay for the crap they churn out. Just ignore it. Then it will soon die out from lack of funds.

So yes, audience approval does matter. They need people to pay for it.
