Hey guys. Found this clip on youtube of what looks like some next gen facial animation. What do you think? The lipsynch and eye movements are extremely realistic and the performance is pretty gripping.
@darkcitycop: It's interesting. The mouth is a little over animated though, I think.
The biggest problem to producing a believable character model is that so many animators underestimate the value of a properly animated tongue. It's the most consistent reason I've found that I have trouble reconciling what I see when a character speaks with what I expect to see.
