Faux-tographer’s dream program

Half of this image is a photo, and half is a CGI rendering.

Look for better sim-imagery in the future. One wonders why the military doesn’t already use it?

 

Hyper-Realistic CGI Is Killing Photographers, Thrilling Product Designers

 

Computer-generated images are moving out of theaters and onto store shelves and catalog pages, thanks to software that makes it nearly impossible to distinguish the real from the photorealistic.

    Holy Sh#tBalls! That is impressive! Bastards! Well if they still employ their terrible “so called” witness actors, their “fun with numbers” and their Symbolism Schticks, Sniffing Out These Lying Scum should still be possible – IMO

    One wonders why the military doesn’t already use it?

    a guess on why the military do not use this already might be that they depend on film & image having the same textures and image quality. rendering the type of image seen in this article 12-25 times a second would still be difficult in real time, especially if the setting is a room with objects or in nature. every pixel of an image needs to be photorealistic,,,

    another issue might be that rendering programs still are standalone applications for images and film and often use different rendering engins and/or texture banks.
    as an example on how well the 3d rendering is coming along in architecture, here is a link to some pretty perfect 3d renderings,,, with flaws so they look like the real thing:
