Cameron Talks About The Future of New CGI Technology
Cameron - If we had put the same energy into creating a human as we put into creating the Na'vi, it would have been 100% indistinguishable from reality. The question is, why the hell would you do that? Why not just photograph the actor?
Well, let's say Clint Eastwood really wanted to do one last Dirty Harry movie, looking the way he did in 1975. He could absolutely do it now. And that would be cool.
Seriously. If this is true, could this mean Star Wars episodes 7, 8 and 9 can be done with the original cast looking how they did in the early 80's? What about the return of the Joker for Batman 3? Whatever you think of Avatar as a movie, there is no denying what kind of impact this technology can have on the future of the movie industry.
It's what i've dreamt about. photorealistic cgi so real that it's impossible to tell if the person is human or not on screen. reall looking human skin, mannerisms, no dead eye, no uncanney valley, no rubbery stifness look. Just real human narure, realistic skin done to the very pores.
the future of cgi tech is is here..

voices who said they can't be fabricated, a computer stores information in binary digit an artificial copy is fundamentally indistinguishable from the original except by temporal and spatial continuity of use and disuse by various agents.
Aka, the brain uses a large chunk to deal with vision, music and voice should be easy as pie with the right information if google gets better searches get better.
