Originally used as an argument against the dangers of 3D reconstruction, jargon such as ‘Photorealism’, ‘Hyper-realism’ and ‘Physically accurate’ have often been applied so liberally by archeologists in recent years that they actually now fail to work as benchmarks for the level of visual quality being achieved through CGI in heritage.

Check out this phantastic Nextlimit Realflow Case study for the film the "Immortals" ! Stephen Elphick from BarXseven, talks about how RealFlow was used to simulate the wrath of Ares, God of War in Immortals. ----The Problem How to create slow motion exploding heads using CG fluid simulations as Ares, the God of War, annihilates the enemy warband by smashing open their heads with his hammer. To show his speed and power, Ares moves in realtime throughout the carnage, which is shot in slow motion to highlight the comparatively sluggish nature of fragile mortals. Stephen Elphick: "The most challenging aspect was creating an explosion that had the right interior pressure on the fluid. This had to give a sense of a smash from a hammer blow. And the schedule was tight! With only five months to develop the explosions of nine heads simultaneously, and a small team of six. ----The Solution BarXseven had never used RealFlow before but found that it integrated well with their existing pipeline. "Realflow is attractive due to its easy to learn workflow. It offers good results with a large amount of control without overwhelming new users with the complexities of its inner workings. We decided to go with Realflow because it was important to have an application that gave consistently good fluid simulations and was integral with Maya which constitutes our main 3d pipeline. It also boasted a very easy to learn workflow and it was immediately clear it was easy to get good results. Realflow performed exactly as it promised to and allowed simulations to be repeated with speed. It was very easy to pick up all the features that we needed to complete this project and had the flexibility to mix and match the interaction of rigid/soft body and fluid simulations." ----How? "I modeled and textured the helmets and masks of the victims in Maya and then used a procedural script to create a shattered helmet. I imported these collections of geometry into Realflow where they were filled with the simulation fluid. The end process involved importing everything back to Maya and layering to create a fantastical explosion of blood and gore." ----THE RESULT "The most rewarding part of the project was seeing people's reaction to the end result. After staring at simulations of heads exploding for five months it had completely desensitized me from the subject matter, which has to be one of the goriest scenes in the film." BarXseven is a visual effects and animation company based in Montreal, Canada, staffed by a dynamic group of talented 2D and 3D artists, known for tackling creative and challenging work. From pre-visualization to post production and concept to completion, BarXseven delivers beautiful artistic shots for feature films and television.

The future of visual effects in films, TV, and VR; from crossing the uncanny valley in human animation, to light-field camera technology that will change the way moving images are captured. Subscribe to TDC for regular videos like this: https://www.youtube.com/TheDailyConversation/ Video by Bryce Plank Editing by Robin West Follow us on FB: http://www.facebook.com/thedailyconversation http://www.twitter.com/thedailyconvo Script: Visual effects have come a long way in the 124 years since we first set eyes on the motion picture. Today, the world’s most talented vfx studios create films and TV shows that seamlessly blend the digital image with the analog, allowing artists to make their wildest dreams come to life on the big screen. The full maturation of the tools used by creators working on the cutting edge of the industry - like computer-generated worlds, real-time previewing of motion capture, cloud-based rendering, and hyper realistic digital humans - has laid the groundwork for the media revolution we’re about to experience as 360 degree Virtual Reality goes mainstream. This is a look at the near-term future of visual effects. In order to understand where we’re headed, let’s look at where we’ve come from. [Clip from Jurassic Park] Many of today’s premier VFX artists were hooked by iconic scenes like this one from Jurassic Park: aha! moments that opened their minds to the power of mixing computer-generated imagery with live action footage. Today, nearly 25 years after Spielberg's T-Rex changed the game, every single film on the 50 highest grossing movies of all time list relied heavily on visual effects, or was completely animated. But what might be even more telling is that 25 of them were released in the last five years. That’s an indication of how reliant the big studios are on VFX and how much we, the public, love to see visual effects take us to worlds we otherwise couldn’t visit. The king of VFX, is director James Cameron. For both Avatar and Titanic — the two highest grossing films of all time — Cameron pioneered a number of new techniques that heavily influenced the blockbuster movie industry, like a motion capture stage six times larger than any before, a way to preview shots in the virtual world in realtime while motion capturing them on set, and a technique to enable full performance capture using small cameras right in front of the actors' faces to collect facial expressions and, importantly, eye movement. This allowed Zoe Saldana to breath emotional life into her Neytiri character in a way that was compelling to the audience. Full performance capture has become an industry standard. But while it's become commonplace to bring characters like the Na’vi, Maz Kanata, Caesar, or the Hulk to life using facial capture technology, using it — or any other CG technique — to make a believable fully digital human is another story. We are getting closer to crossing the uncanny valley. While it’s still cheaper to hire Tom Hanks than to recreate him digitally, we’re a long way from the waxiness of the CG characters he brought to life in The Polar Express. So far, the most lifelike use of digital humans was Rogue One’s resurrection of Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia and Peter Cushing as Grand Moff Tarkin. But Industrial Light and Magic had hours of reference footage of both actors, mapped the digital recreation of their faces onto full performances of other actors, and even found a lifecast of Peter Cushing’s face from a previous role. [Artist] "This was gold for us because it was Peter Cushing as he appeared at a certain time in his life." Neither Leia nor Tarkin’s cameos were very long or involved much movement, and they still didn’t quite look human. But this technology could be about to take another leap. Last week, Weta Digital finally began post production on the four sequels to Avatar, which are slated for December 2020, 2021, 2024, and 2025 releases. And Cameron says he wants the films to set a new high bar. [Quote from director James Cameron] “What Joe Letteri and Weta Digital bring to these stories is impossible to quantify. Since we made Avatar, Weta continued to prove themselves as doing the best CG animation, the most human, the most alive, the most photorealistic effects in the world. And of course, that now means I can push them to take it even further.” But what really needs this push isn’t traditional films like Avatar, it’s the newest form of entertainment, virtual reality. Because effects studios can make literally anything else look photorealistic, creating believable digital humans seems to be the last big hurdle to creating feature-length films for VR. Why do I say that?

Synthesizing Obama: Learning Lip Sync from Audio Supasorn Suwajanakorn, Steven M. Seitz, Ira Kemelmacher-Shlizerman SIGGRAPH 2017 Given audio of President Barack Obama, we synthesize a high quality video of him speaking with accurate lip sync, composited into a target video clip. Trained on many hours of his weekly address footage, a recurrent neural network learns the mapping from raw audio features to mouth shapes. Given the mouth shape at each time instant, we synthesize high quality mouth texture, and composite it with proper 3D pose matching to change what he appears to be saying in a target video to match the input audio track http://grail.cs.washington.edu/projects/AudioToObama/

The arrival of sophisticated technology (such as renderers, games engines and VR) has brought with it much discussion. Overshadowed in the past few years by techniques like Photogrammetry, the most vocal of these arguments, “How realistic should we make our reconstructions...?” has consistently flourished, naturally progressing to the vocalization of renderers and computational processes. Originally used as an argument against the dangers of 3D reconstruction, jargon such as ‘Photorealism’, ‘Hyper-realism’ and ‘Physically accurate’ have often been applied so liberally by archeologists in recent years that they actually now fail to work as benchmarks for the level of visual quality being achieved through CGI in heritage. The author believes the reasons for this stem from a breakdown between commercially driven communities and academia, where valuable processes are often identified and then removed from their wider context (and standards) without reciprocation. This miscommunication has, in the example of CGI often led to the removal of the practitioner, their role as creator and the relationship between their current skill level and the output. Incidentally, an ‘inception like’ false reality is a very real possibility for true commercial photorealistic practitioners such as Alex Roman, Grant Warwick and Bertrand Bernoit, but instead of distancing themselves, these artists actively embrace their role as authors to hone their skill, framing their craft as an informed amalgamation of digital, film and photographic ideals. This talk will look at the benefit these same reflections could have on the empowerment of the archaeologist and our collective understanding of the past. Grant Cox, ArtasMedia
