If you always wanted to know why in all recent films that have digital actors they don't look that convincing you might be interested in this read:

A bright shining lie - Synthespians, why we don't like them and their future role in cinema

I'm talking about digital actors in a way they appear in the Final Fantasy movie or Beowolf. A full substitute for a human actors. Digital stuntdoubles are not so much the focus of the article.

Hope you enjoy the read.

    Well, the thread is over 6 years old, so that's not surprising. What I don't get is why you bumped a thread this old just to tell us that.

    Not everyone looks at a timestamp the first time a link doesn't work...

    I recommend the thread gets locked...

    For courtesy's sake. I have a home web server that's been up for about that long and don't mind getting nudged when some thing goes wrong.

    Zabiegly's site -- where the file was linked to -- is still up. I made the error of thinking that he might still be visiting this site and was unaware the link to that file was dead.

    They work better where you donA’t need close-up detail. E.g. the crowd scenes in the Lord Of The Rings movies were computer-generated.

    The days of A“A Cast Of ThousandsA” are past...
