See how far you can push your rig with the NVIDIA Faceworks rendering demo

NVIDIA FaceWorks

By on May 14, 2013 at 3:06 pm

NVIDIA have released the application behind their recent human face-rendering technology video, so that home users can run it for themselves.

You can adjust the rendering options in real-time during the video, to see how NVIDIA’s FaceWorks technology copes with different lighting conditions. Getting creeped out by the Uncanny Valley effect is not part of the demo but you’re welcome to do it anyway.

If you’d like, you can download the demo right here from our file library which is, of course, quota-free for iiNet group customers.

File not found…

 

???

It works just fine for me.

 

You should add that it requires a CUDA enabled GPU… effectively ruling out ATI and intel GPUs to test it.

 

Tim Colwill,

Getting a 404 here too…

edit: no it’s working now, strange…

 

runs great on a 660Ti

 

Working fine on my GTX580.

But why in God’s name wouldn’t you use an attractive girl’s face?!

Because we’re not all young horny teenagers?

Installed, runs great, looks amazing, can’t wait till they implement it into games.

 

You can hold mouse down and move around the head. Move around to back of head, then zoom in using mouse wheel and you go inside head. Seeing the back of the moving eyes is a bit strange.

 

Works pretty well, even on my GTX570. No super smooth but it’s consistent.

^ this :P could it be that the games industry is starting to grow up?

 

Actually it might because I’m a sad lonely near-40 year-old but I think the cute girl face would’ve made me happy too. It would not have shown the technology very well though, it’s a lot easier to model an attractive female head than it is to create a realistic looking well-animated average male head. We are, after all, showing off new technology here, you want to show something that’s a little difficult.

 

if you want a sexy elf type fairy girl, get the new dawn demo :)

as for this one, sli NOT working as default, but just adding it to the programs and using the alternate rendering mode works. it is kinda freaky and lacking in options was only fun for 5 minutes, the new dawn demo had a much longer replayability time ;)

 

Runs well on the 690

 

hellbender,

Nvidia have an unfortunate habit of this.

I prefer the look of women myself they’re more aesthetically pleasing /shrug

This!

 

Doesn’t look like its changed too much from the old human head tech demo from the 8800 days in 2007?? 6 years ago

wait – no, I take that back….

it yells now.

Re-read what and how it was written.

Yep, just reread your comment and it still sounds like you’re assuming everybody who thought a female head would be better is a horny teen.
