Impressive, given that there were only seven image pairs.

I got 7 of 7.


The CGI is getting really good, but it's still not entirely there. Hair and skin are tough to do right (especially in close-up) and most of it is still "too perfect."

Also, a few were just obvious, esp. when one image involved a half-body shot including hands, clothing, etc., and the other was a face shot.

I will say this, however; They've crossed over the uncanny valley, at least for still images.

6/7 here. Don't recall enough to describe which pair got me -- it was a woman, though, and not zoomed in.

Yeah. Even the ones where I immediately sensed which one wasn't "right", I still wasn't creeped out by it.

Exactly.

This wasn't really a fair test. Having been told that one image of every pair is CG, it becomes a simple matter of determining which one of each pair looks slightly less unreal than the other, and then determining that that isn't the image which you're not supposed to believe is not fabricated.

Had they presented 14 unrelated images and said "Some of these images are CG; pick which ones" without pairing them up or telling you how many were real vs. how many were CG, then I'd have likely missed several.

Eeyup.

It'll still be a long time before they get motion down. That's a whole different animal from just simple lighting and textures. But for still images, I'd posit that within ten years it'll be hard to tell the difference, even side by side. At this point, they're down to the genuinely trivial, like making individual hairs behave correctly, distributing pores in skin in that sort-of-but-not-quite-pseudo-random way, recognizing that skin itself is actually slightly translucent and comprised of several layers, etc.

7/7, easily. Not quite there yet. Very close though.

Got them all, which one doesn't have "soul"? There's your fake. Joe hit it on the head, "too-perfect". Flaws give away the real people, that, and imperfect facial symmetry. The "hotter" woman, would generally be the fake.

Yup, the very last one, with no comparison and no "answer key", is difficult to answer.

i got them all right, solely because it's easy to spot the real photograph.

I got all but one by looking at the eyes.

But what's hard for me to get past is the fact that the 'real' photos were all photoshopped and airbrushed to within a pixel of their lives. That's not CGI, but it makes the real ones look more like CGI, which is different from CGI looking real.

Did anyone else find the completely digital Japanse pop star to be freaky?
