this is getting scary and dangerous... but awesome at the same time. Realtime unreal4 engine with face motion capturing

Still uncanny, probably from the mouth and body movements - but the face is looking great! I love Unreal Engine, I see it as the future.

They even release in the same GDC (with x4 titans in parrallel) REALTIME RAYTRACING in engine - with dof, reflections, refractions, gi, ao, soft cascading shadows, everything. Realtime.

I just downloaded the software and I have been experimenting with Unreal Engine 4 and I think this is definitely the most impressive software I have ever tried.
The download was pretty large at over 6 gigs but it runs good on my desktop and the real-time lighting and textures are hard to believe.
Just learning but this will consume most of my time for the next few months trying to learn how to use it. 8-)

Glad you're getting into it. Indeed, it is magical!

Keep me posted on your Unreal Engine progress, sometimes I think I may oneday need to delegate work to someone who knows my workflow.

I'm about to decide that it really does not run very good on my computer. I have been trying to follow a youtube video on creating grass and when I add the material as shown it takes 5 to 10 minutes to simply add the material texture to the editor. I thought it was freezing up, but apparently, (after I waited 5 minutes), the texture loaded. It is simply EXTREMELY slow. I think it is the free 6GB landscape asset. I may try moving the textures to a different directory so that the path names are not so so long. Don't know whats wrong but this is totally ridiculous :? .

I was finally able to get get a good grass texture using a different tutorial with some flowers and rocks added. Will keep experimenting and move on to trying to make some landscape scenes.
