For those of you who are not aware, Dynamixyz is specializes in developing tools and technologies for facial capture for video games and movies. GamingBolt recently spoke to the company’s CEO, Gaspard Breton and asked him about his thoughts on the PS4 and Xbox One and whether their technology will cater to them.
“Yes, of course! Our technology is dedicated to preparing data which can be played with any hardware, system, game engine… We’re very much looking forward to the new console generation. The new computing power will allow studios to create even more realistic characters, which puts more pressure on the quality of facial animation. This makes our technology all the more relevant, as quality is always our top-priority,” he said.
But the main bottleneck for them is the lack of computation power and he is still to come across consoles and gaming hardware that can accurarely do facial capture above 30 frames per second. “For us, the bottleneck is the computational power when doing real time. We are still missing a machine which is able to track accurately, retarget, animate and render at more than 30 FPS (in real-time),” he said.
