I thought it would be interesting to discuss what people think will be, or could be, the NEXT big innovations in CG, coming in the next 3 years or so (or at least doable with current technologgy in the next 3 years).
I’ll post the first suggestion:
Photorealism Assistance Algorithm/Intelligent Re-Shading and Shading Transfer Algorithm
- Analyzes the shading of a rendered image.
- Intelligently alters the shading of that image (using statistical methods or similar) to create a much more Photoreal looking result
- You can also provide a photograph or other image whose look/shading you want to mimick, and the PAA will automagically apply/transfer that type of shading (or “shading profile”) onto your rendered image.
That’s my suggestion for the Next Big Innovation.
I am curious to hear other people’s suggestions now.
