No words to describe this. and yet so many words to describe this.
In the end there’s only one word though. Blur.

will CG ever get past soulless eyes and face? We’ve come so far but have farther to go.

Othoap, I guess they could, but you need a client who pays for that first.

@Nildo: Agreed, editing is particularly good on this one.

Marcin, Good point.
The first HULK was the most believable human(?) CG to date.
With all the talent at Blur when will they do there own feature movie? What ever happened to Rockfish?

@othoap Givens Blur’s general budget and time constraints they do amazing work. It seems every step closer to realism just reassures us that the uncanny valley is alive and well :-)
LOL as an example, go back and take a look at Final Fantasy:The Spirits Within or Polar Express, I remember when both came out and people were like “wow the realism its amazing”, I thought they looked creepy. =)

Blur is a standard and I couldn’t come close. To produce a fake face in 30 years of CG were nature has had a million years of R&D is not fair comparison.
The face rigging tech is mostly there it’s the animation. It’s all seams to slow. The shots that really bother me is the face on camera shots. It’s not a flattering way to draw of frame a face. All the features get compressed and flat looking.
Johnny, Yes completely agree. But I like calling it “By Polar Express” that is on the depressed side.
