    On the Reanimation DVD There's a making-of for POA. They did go through a head scanner for their head textures. They showed the flattened UV map of Chester's entire head texture for the lulz, that shot just makes the video.

    haha










    and now ignore the part where the 3D computer graphics person squees over the video.

    OMG it's a body scanner! OMG they have the head rotaty thingy and I actually sort of understand how those work! Oooooooo they're smashing down their hair so it doesn't get scanned as solid geometry and allowing them to simulate individual strands later! Oooooooo Mike's screaming face! I wonder how many emotions they took, and how they're using them to help rigging. ........Are they rigging or are they just setting unmoving models on fire and stuff?

    So now they can manipulate the band's bodies to do whatever they like...

    Imagine if Sarah, Liz or VDalem had that power. :head:

    Well they're surely using better equipment now, I mean, we're talking about 9~10 years later.. The faces scanned here are already more accurate than those of the POA video..

    Also the rendering and modeling and whatever they're doing with the scans must be a different and/or innovative process, who knows.

    Yeah, I know ;D

    I agree that the way they're messing with the models must be the "cutting-edge" aspect of the method. I now suspect those promo photos from earlier this year to be entirely computer-generated ;P

    Pretty cool episode, but I hope that they didn't entirely skip over LPTV's for the recording process and making of the album. They went from the making of BID to the making of the album artwork..

    I'm pretty much sure they haven't, they're just smart enough to know they don't want to show audio/video of ANY other song that hasn't been released yet.

    Speaking of the "Pts.Of.Athrty" video, it'd be really cool to see the band make another fully-CGI music video :)

    Well, I think that they will do like guys from Rammstein in "Sehnsucht" at each specimen, we will have different face. If so, I want Rob on my Living Things ! :trollface:

    With this new information, our collective theory about who's on the cover has been called into question ;)
