Can a rendered Luke Skywalker look like the real thing? With the right team and equipment, it might even look more real than the actual Luke. Here are some screenshots to prove it. The rendered Luke is taken from Star Wars: Battlefront. CG is more difficult than one might think and it usually requires an entire team of CG animators/artists to create what might seem like a simple project such as this. Often times you might have a person working on hair or facial effects while another is working on simulation effects to get the right completed look. There are researchers who will go through photographs and other tools of the person they are animating/rendering. Again, it’s not easy.
But the results can be pretty fantastic. We can’t help but wonder what the actor thinks of this. It would be like seeing a younger you come to life. How cool is that?
