    Got to look at it in more detail (and costs etc) but first thoughts are that could be quite handy for adding in 'people' for 3D renderings...

    Why is that so slow? I'd expect it would take minutes, not months, for a Ryzen or Core processor to generate the physical model. Or do these models contain a working brain?

    They're bringing it to market in a couple of months not that it takes a couple of months to make the models.

    Unity will make something that explodes and is pretty but produces something in the aftermath of chaos whereas CryTek will sue Epic for something stupid and will ultimately lose.

    Re: Epic introduces the MetaHuman Creator cloud streamed app

    Epic bought two companies which specialised in digital humans called "Cubic Motion" and "3Lateral". This is just an editor around the work that those guys have been doing for years... Still cool though but I bet it came more from the film industry needing people which trickled down to games rather than games going up.

    How long until deep fakes are being churned out by malicious 14yo scripter kids and keyboard trolls? The CS generators will have nefarious uses already lined up no doubt.

    They are bringing it to market in a couple months and takes a couple of months to create a realistic human using traditional method which this is aiming to take down to a few minutes (though I'd bet that it's going to take a couple hours)

    Re: Epic introduces the MetaHuman Creator cloud streamed app

    Do not matter if you deep fake politicians, anyone know you can not trust one of those anyway, but it could be immensely funny.

    It will be cool when you can actually play with your own actual looks in a game, thats about the one thing that could make me have any interest in the player skins.
    Though when i was competitive player, using a female skin / figure and then go beat the snot out of the boys it was pretty fun, and this was before talking to one and other in games was a thing.
    If i was playing today and in a talking game, i would so use a voice changer and play with the voice of a little girl.
    BUT ! no one make a bloody game worth playing.
