    quote:
    This new method is unique from other approaches in a number of ways,
    including that any face used in the set can be swapped with any recorded performance,
    making it possible to relatively easily re-image the actors on demand.
    The other is that it kindles contrast and light conditions in a compositing step
    to ensure the actor looks like they were actually present in the same conditions as the scene.

    Don't worry, it will get tagged as racist because all the fake people were white, and disney will get cancelled.

    I wonder if this technology has ever been used for news broadcasts, a la WAG THE DOG?

    I have to ask why?? What's the purpose?? And just so I'm clear on this matter, not only can we NOT believe anything that's said (fake news) but now we can't believe anything we see?? Am I close??

    They will say this makes movies cheaper to make, that it allows stunt doubles to do dangerous stuff, but it still looks like the star is doing said dangerous stuff, etc. But, when has technology not been misused to consolidate power to the detriment of the people?

    I don't believe anything I see right off the bat and that has been for several years. Ever since camera tracking came to cell phones. Used to take me hours if not days to set up and do a convincing track. To get the present and the merry christmas to look real took me days. Now it would take minutes. This was 8 years ago.

    Dead-on.

    Anything read, viewed or heard in the media? Assume it is a huge pile-o-sh*t until proven as fact.

    Leaders want to turn the police into the version from Demolition Man. Now they get to use the media from Running Man to help. As we all move toward Idiocracy.

    So they can buy the rights to an actor's likeness and keep using them at any stage of their career long after they get old or die.
