I think we are going to the opposite pole, there is more post production than ever.

I hate that phrase "the future of filmmaking". Its quite possibly A future, but definitely not THE future of filmmaking. Its just another tool in the filmmakers toolbox.

That said, there is nothing really revolutionary about this technology, it seems to be a polished version to a similar system they used on Avatar.

Regardless of being the future or not, or being new or not, it looks really cool!

Wow. I don't see any reason that eventually the quality couldn't rise to CG levels. The stormtroopers looked great, the Trandoshan was definitely game-level though.

Also, one of the clips on that page is "Justin Bieber gets hit by grenade".

You can do almost all of that right now in CryEngine.
Certainly the rendering part. The mocap is really nice,
and seems very stable, but that isn't revolutionary either.

The time of day changing is a common feature in nearly every videogame sandbox editor, especially in CryEngine.

Again, thanks for posting it though!

That's ironic, since several monitors clearly show the Unreal Engine (the interface looks like UE3 but it could be UE4). And although I agree that most of the technology already exists, the tech is not the most important part in such circumstances. I prefer the Unreal Engine over the CryEngine because of its tools such as the material editor and Cascade which can do more than the CryEngine equivalent. But of course that's my own opinion. Still, it's remarkable they use the Unreal Engine.

the question is, as someone allready mentioned- how does it cope in a real movie scene situation...
These presentation which are tailored for optimum efficiancy are often misleading..

non the lest i was very impressed with the quality and creative implications..
though i was just as impressed with rin-tin-tin..
