Maybe this is not the correct forum but its the closest I can find.
Saw this new software and saw a vision of a posible future. Just imagine this software with higher processing power and state of the art graphics. It could very well be possible to make a movie with no actors and very few collaboratos if any and no camera or equipment at all.
It's definitely an interesting concept for the future. But it would need unbearably good graphics for most people to care. Right now it looks like The Sims. There's no way they would be able to make a consumer product that would compete with the emotion that real computer animators are capable of creating. If this program would emulate *even slightly* a 5 second clip from say, Toy Story 1, then I'd be impressed. Still, this is only the framework for a consumer product that will likely only end up being average. Can't you already do similar things at Xtranormal?
What I gathered from the video is a very controlled environment. There may be a lot of options, but still you only have the options that the program permits. Interesting idea, though. This actually seems like a cooler way to make the framework for amateur video game creation as opposed to movies, in my opinion.
