EA games has adopted new tech which will see players in games such as FIFA 13 looking a lot more realistic.
A press release from Glasgow-based Dimensional Imaging says the firm’s new technology will allow EA to give more players the “Digital Imaging 3D star treatment”.
“We recognised a few years ago that raising the quality of facial appearance was an increasing priority for our game teams,” says Mike Harrison, director of EA Capture at Electronic Arts. “Working closely with Dimensional Imaging has allowed us to develop a highly accurate 3D facial capture pipeline that is now so efficient that we can apply it to more characters than we ever thought possible.”
Dimensional Imaging CEO Colin Urquhart added his thoughts on the matter saying, “The relentless increase in the quality of computer graphics makes it ever more necessary to capture real life human likenesses in order to create believable virtual characters, but this process has traditionally been very time consuming for video game development.
“EA was one of the first developers to recognize the need for improved capture workflows, and working with them since EA Sports FIFA 10 has been instrumental in helping Dimensional Imaging to develop a product suite that is now suitable for even the most demanding development pipelines in the business.”
While FIFA 13 is inevitable, it’s still not been announced as of yet. It will however be interesting to see what changes the publisher has for it this year.
