In Response To: Re: Ugh. Finally! (davidfuchs)

: One would imagine of all the possible issues with H2A they would have learned
: their lesson from CEA about the facial animations. The lip synching was
: essentially done automatically and thus they ran into problems trying to
: fix it in time for ship--given what we got in the final game we can assume
: it was truly horrendous.

CEA's cutscene animation issues were a development time thing. They started out with straight mocap, but the results needed a lot of tweaking by hand. The game shipped in the middle of that process, so it wound up with some ridiculous pure mocap, some really choppy unfinished hand-animation, and the occasional decent stuff.

"Learning their lesson" in this context would basically amount to "give the development team more than a year to build the visuals for a modern game."
