Ahead of E3, Sucker Punch is giving fans of inFAMOUS franchise a behind-the-scenes look at the technology that will power the next chapter, inFAMOUS: Second Son.
The video takes a look at the facial capture technology used and the level of expertise that goes into create dramatic action shots.
“At Sucker Punch we have sought to meet this demand by introducing a new facial capture technology to our studio that takes detailed 3D scans of the actor to “learn” unique surface physiology of the actors to help train our system,” says Technical Director, Spencer Alexander.
“The overall result is a very natural, organic feel directly tied to the anatomy and performance of the actor instead of something that’s feels very mechanical, linear, repetitive, or just plain unsettling. With the assistance of Digital Domain’s cutting edge motion capture studio, we were provided a high level of expertise and animation polish that helped see our tech all the way to the finish.”
inFAMOUS: Second Son is due for release later this year. More details will be revealed at E3 in June.----
