EA's Face Scanning Tech

have posted this in a few threads but I wanted to see everyone's opinion on this...




Left being 2k's scan and right being EA's scanning techniques. I think this explains why EA has a more 'cartoony' appearance in general. The article I found it from said that EA seems to work on the textures of faces after it is scanned in..and 2k seems to just capture the whole head. Explains the sort of plastic look that EA models have.

Madden's face scans never look photo realistic to me. They look great.. I can't say otherwise.. but they still look cartoony a bit

Re: EA's Face Scanning Tech

Face scanning isn't AS important in a football game as it is in a basketball game, for obvious reasons. I'm more concerned, graphically, with the player models as a whole, and the textures of the uniforms.

Re: EA's Face Scanning Tech

I wonder how much VC it would cost to call an audible in NFL2K15

Re: EA's Face Scanning Tech

I'm not sure about the 2K rig, but there's one key element for EA's tech...it's portable.



Josh Gordon being scanned AT First Energy Stadium.

That was a big reason that EA has talked so much about how many faces they've gotten in this year. Instead of having guys come into their office, they can take the scanning tech anywhere they need to.

EA touted 100s of new face scans in Madden 25 for the Xbox One and PS4 and that was completely false advertising so we will just have to wait and see.

Re: EA's Face Scanning Tech

I will leave this open for now. But don't let this turn into a EA vs 2K thread.

I don't care if y'all talk about face scans just don't need the 100th comparison thread of the year.

Re: EA's Face Scanning Tech

Not sure why they scan the entire head. They should just scan the face, which is the only part you see during the game anyways, and fill the rest up and add hair to the back. But I'm no expert, maybe they have it right.

Re: EA's Face Scanning Tech

as a Dolphins fan, it was annoying that they had the wrong face/hair for Ryan Tannehill in last year's game. hopefully its fixed. they did have his cadence down though, with the GO-GO crap
