During this year’s GTC2013, Nvidia showcased some truly amazing features that might be coming to the next-generation titles. Among to those features were some stunning ocean simulation physics and FaceWorks, a technique that has been used to render and animate a human head with incredible image fidelity. According to Nvidia, the data from Debevec’s team exceeded 32 gigabytes for a few expressions of Ira (the man who was rendered) and as a result of that, even the most advanced GPUs will choke on the immensity of that. FaceWorks reduced this to a very manageable 300 megabytes. Debevec’s tech demo was running in real-time on a single Nvidia Titan card. You can view a video from that demonstration below, courtesy of YouTube’s ‘Ubergizmo’. Enjoy!
