Doesn't they say the same thing about photography when it was emerging? ;)
Agreed. This is just depressing and is a detriment to society. If this keeps advancing at its current rate, good art will be so trivial to generate that it won't be special anymore. Art will slowly morph into a banal distraction, with creating an original piece being as easy as applying an Instagram filter. The role of the human artist will change from a craftsperson to someone who picks a bunch of parameters, gives it to the AI, and chooses the best output. This type of technology is a threat to the very existence of art as a craft, will completely devalue artwork, and will make the journey of training to become an artist obsolete. I hate these researchers for what they're doing to a field that I love.
I disagree. There will always be demand for real artists. Like any other digital software, this is just a tool with the possibility to help artists create compelling worlds faster and add realism that would otherwise have taken days to make using other methods. As a 3D character artist, I would love to use this to create quick backdrops to place my characters in to enhance final renders.
Keyshot 8 is coming and Luxion has released a sneak peek video highlighting some of the features to be presented in the release. The video shows little details focusing mainly on final renders, but it seems that we’ll get displacement and volumetrics amongst other things.
We didn’t want to leave you wondering what’s coming to KeyShot 8 (well, maybe a little), so we put together a short video with highlights of a few of the new features. Can you guess any of them? If so, let us know. And, stay tuned for more previews of what’s possible with KeyShot 8 on our YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook pages.
What’s in store for KeyShot 8? Have a look…
