I agree I would not want a game thats this realistic. Thankfully with current hardware it would be impossible to run in real time so we dont have to worry about that.

I think I have a fairly good "CG-eye" (pun intended lol) Because my friends showed me various footage with realistic looking cars or objects, but for me it was easy to tell what was fake. Besides her movements seemed too erratic in my eyes.

"CG-eye"
  ;D nice one. yeh,it would be cool to play a game with this level of CG, but if all games turned like this, imagine playing, say...call of dutyX, it would be really wierd, coz it would be as if there were real people in it  :-[ ...to wierd for me

Yeah, Anything on a Screen (be it computer or TV) is 2D, although some games are Immersive, different, but a better word to use... hard to explain lol.

I still don't think it's that hot.   To me, it looked like they tried to map a CG texture over a live actor, kind of like they did with "The Mummy" to create the half-desiccated, half-regenerated scenes.  ...there's still somethign a little stiff or plastic to the movements.  If I didn't know this was CG, I would have thought she had way too much plastic surgery or Botox, and her face was partially paralyzed.

..as far as the best CG to date, it is a toss up.  So many movies go for a stylized look, there are few that try for true photorealism.  Shrek and the PIXAR movies are all stylized and cartoony.  Final Fantast VII: Advent Children has a dreamy, androgynous, anime look.    My vote would have to to go the new Star Wars trilogy for most photo-realistic, even though there weren't really any CG humans

Keep in mind that most Gollum's movements and facial expressions where driven by motion capture data created from human actor, Andy Serkis.  That said, one cannot deny the amazing textures created by the CG artists responsible for the final product.

i think the talent ( or technolgy ) it takes to create total realisim is impresive. and definitely to be respected. but i still have to think if you realy want that much realisim why not go real. i would think it easer to use real actors on a real set ( as far as movies go) for me CG is for going beyound realality.

I get your idea, motion capture I guess would be best used to get realistic animations on say, cartoony looking characters and robots (I, Robot), instead of for recreating life. Although some shows/movies like to keep characters just below total realism, like the FF7 movie, it keeps the audience amazed at the realism but relaxed (couldn't think of a better word) as they are still animated and not real.

If PVM files you need to open are XP digi photos or movies try http://www.irfanview.com/ or try MS power point I think that may work too.

PS: Please open a new thread next time.  ;) Hope this helps  :)

Seen the main player from mirror's edge? It's not very photorealistic, but there's no mistaking humanity, and perhaps emotional faces... to me, looks more realistic than this.
