      Given that all their projects look subpar because they do it in a week, I doubt it. It would need to be a Corridor Digital video, but that wouldn't fly because that wouldn't be a "buzz catching" video.

    The complete CGI shot of Smith on the motorcycle brandishing the pistol was the single most convincing live-action-replacement shot I’ve ever seen. It makes Tarkin and Leia in Rogue One look like video game NPCs.
    WETA engineers are geniuses. The pore, melanin, and eye techniques are all game-changers. Incredible.

      Agree with everything you said. Just think though what other shots you've seen and had no idea it was a CG character. Maybe you've seen better and didn't notice. That is what the artists are aiming for no?

    • Peter Lenham

      @Darryl Giors Yes. Ive seen films that seemingly had no CGI, then discovered they had lots. The effects where invisible and completely seamless.

      carlotta4th Hace 29 días

      It was definitely the "most" convincing, but personally I could still tell it was CGI. He moves too easily for that position, the muscles aren't giving the same details. The heada/shoulders in relation to the arms also seem a bit off. These may just be subconscious notices but it's there.
      Definitely very, *very* impressive though. They did great!

    Besides the ridiculously high frame rate and obvious uncanny valley issue, Gemini Man tripped up because literally everyone knows what young Will looked like. They had to go back to Season 1 of Fresh Prince.

    • Dhakadice

      Frame rates over 30 fps sends EVERYTHING into either uncanny valley or the "soap opera" look.
      I remember seeing The Hobbit in a movie theatre (ok, it was the sequel) and it just looked like a bunch of guys running around in the woods playing wizard.

      @Dhakadice That's because it didn't have the LoTR budget to properly build the props and hire a bunch of extras. Also, too many stupid videogame elements.

      I had the same problem with a movie called Noble House. It starred a younger Pierce Brosnan aged up with makeup and gray hair to look like an older version of himself. But it doesn’t match how he actually has aged, as seen in his many films.

    It will always be so incredible to me how science-y vfx are. They almost need a human science/biology degree to be good at their job. When they talk about the muscles and melanin and eye structure it takes me back to my anatomy and physiology classes.

    • Batmang

    The main takeaway from this video should be how Weta learns anatomy to make CG characters look real

      it should be about how badly Marvel treats their VFX artists.

      OSAMA-KIN TMZ Hace 27 días +2

      Well yeah, even as a 2D artist you need to learn anatomy, this is not something new lol. Takeaway should be more that they need time and tolerance to reach stuff like this, two things that big companies are giving less and less of.

    • Kyle Carter
      Kyle Carter Hace 27 días +1

      @Osama-KIN_TMZ01 I know way too many people who try to draw and have zero knowledge of anatomy. My comment wasn't for me, it was for people who want to be an artist who see my comment.

      OSAMA-KIN TMZ Hace 27 días +3

      ​@Kyle Carter And I know way too many people who try to model and have zero knowledge of anatomy. Obviously, I wasn't talking about you, I was saying that it is not something to boast about as it is the bare minimum you should be learning in most artistic mediums, anatomy I mean, same with learning perspective. I'm talking in the professional setting, but you can never be called a true visual artist if you don't understand the real thing.

    While Weta's approach to realism is often more science than art, the talent and skill of the artists are the only way that approach could even work. Their models could literally be used for medical research purposes in some cases, and the level of detail and knowledge each artist utilizes is so vast and in-depth, they could almost be experts in the scientific fields of study of the real-life subjects they're tasked with recreating. I'm constantly amazed by the work they do, and it's awesome to see and hear them talk about their craft. Great episode.

      Don't forget though that behind every cutting-edge modelling, texturing, and rendering technique, there are a bunch of programmers coming up with the algorithms and making sure they run as smoothly and quickly as possible. _They_ are the unsung heroes IMO. I was really excited when they had Paul Debevec on the couch the other week - a proper hero of mine he is.

    There was an episode of the "Farscape" TV series that opened on a closeup of a pair of eyes, and you could feel the grief and sorrow radiating from them (a major character had died at the end of the previous episode). Then the camera pulled back, revealing that it was Rygel, one of the puppets created by The Jim Henson Company. They got more emotion from a puppet than a lot of human actors can manage.

      Farscape is one of the best sci-fi shows ever made. You could feel the love that was put into every character. I really wish I could one day watch a remake movie directed by James Gunn. He already said he was inspired by Farscape to make GotG.

    I guess that's why some scenes in Gemini man looked super uncanny valley, but others were spot on. I'll take a gander that the spot-on ones were done by WETA. That tech he's describing with the pores and the colors shifting of the sub-surface is really mind blowing. The eyes stuff too... no more faking it with textures they really just built an entire eye. WOW.

    • sirmonkey
      sirmonkey Hace 29 días +2

      some of the issues in that movie visually had a lot to do with the decision to use 120fps. watching it at 60fps it makes the movements look too rapid and makes the CGI stand out way too much especially during the chase scene.

      The Mummy scene with the Rock as the scorpion king comes to mind in which the guest said that the Rock was in a different project at the time so they couldn't get any reference and such, so they just had to make do with what they had in the time they had.

    Always love the videos! Something I would love you guys to tackle on with the pros is the working hours of the artists in these projects. I feel thats a key element missing, lots of people getting overworked and with talks of forming a union (even if its only for the on set VFX people) I think its important to bring how sometimes people get overworked and how that is not ok. Work like balance is important, and new filmmakers should be aware you should hurt your mental and physical health for a movie.

A lot of great effects in those movies, especially considering they were made 13-20 years ago. Check out the “water god” scene at the end of Narnia: Prince Caspian, plus all the CGI non-human characters - the beavers, Asian the lion, Reepicheep the mouse, the centaurs, the fawns, etc. so many great VFX

    Absolutely loved the peek into the pore workflow and tech. Having spent a LOT of time making characters for games this is exactly the kind of thing that gets me excited. The way the skin tone shifts with movement, pore stretching/skin creasing and even with all that, I can immediately tell it's a CG face. But, it's soo good. We are getting closer and closer to CG being indistinguishable from reality, the problem is our eyes/mind are trained to notice some incredibly subtle things about faces and how they animate, many of which we don't even realize until someone points it out.
    And the eyes.... The bane of every 3d artist trying to make realistic looking characters in a real time medium.....
    Awesome video as always!

    Had the privilege of working at Weta way back during the LOTR days, and know Guy from back then. Even then, the rigging and rendering were top notch, and it's only gotten better since. The amount of thought and attention to the tiny details is amazing. I gotta say, though - we did a camera pull through an open wound at Valve in Meet The Pyro, way back in 2012.

      @ZeroPrimeSigma they were talking about pore-stretching and he said the solution was a "poor man's version." Think "poor" vs. "pore."

    I recently watched all 3 live-action Full Metal Alchemist films, and often found myself wondering if Alphonse in difference scenes were a digi-double, or an actor in a real suit. I think it would be neat to have VAR episode trying to break down the effects from those films.

    Please take a look at the special effects used in the Norwegian movies "Dead Snow" and "Dead Snow 2", since they managed to get really good effects from a budget that would be comparable to just _talking_ to a special effects team in the US 🙂

      @Bannon Rudis You're telling me that The Princess Bride cliff scene, in 1987, used VFX? It was all in-camera. A fake cliff wall for close-ups, using a winch to lift the cast, and wide angles against the real cliff face in Ireland.

    When I got around to watching She Hulk I couldn't fathom why I had heard so many complaints about the effects. To my eye everything was pretty damn convincing. Can't escape the feeling that yes, you're expecting CG so you're looking for the tiny flaws. At the end of the day everything was up to big budget movie levels for a TV show.
    Pretty fun show to boot. Had fun watching it.

    • sirmonkey
      sirmonkey Hace 29 días +1

      i think the biggest issue with she hulk was the decision to go the typical movie/tv bs "we need to make her look sexy as the hulk".. if she portrayed "hulk" closer to the actual character i think less people would of had an issue with it. she's suppose to be a bada... but instead she just looks like a green alien that reminds me a lot of the Martian Girl from Mars Attacks!. it was just poor decission making by production and the CGI team did their best to work with it.

      I think part of it is the lighting. The models look great. The movement is fine. The lighting is just off in most scenes, making them look like they aren't really there.

    Do an episode on the sound of fights! I’m rewatching “The Batman” and the punches sound so real. They have that flesh sound on fabric, or rubber, or metal. Could be the best sound editing for a fight I’ve ever heard. I know you’d talked about the sound of punches in the past, and the Batman is so good.

    • Sean Vina

      I started watching the Nolan Batman series again, and their sound effects are so much worse. The punches sound fake, like a cartoon. Even Dark Knight Rises, sounds pretty bad. What's up with that?
