A new video for L.A. Noire
The Technology Behind LA Noire's Lifelike Performances
The latest title from Rockstar Games, L.A. Noire is a dark and violent detective thriller set in Los Angeles during the post-war years of the late 1940's. Players take the reins of newly minted detective Cole Phelps (Aaron Staton of Mad Men) as he solves gruesome and mind-bending cases, interrogates suspects, and rises through the ranks of the LAPD in a city where everyone has something to hide.
L.A. Noire is the first game ever to use a brand new technology called MotionScan which goes beyond traditional motion capture to put real actor's performances inside the game, creating a level of realism and immersion never before seen in a videogame. Using a special high definition, 32-camera rig to accurately scan and digitize an actor’s facial performances, Motionscan captures every subtle emotional detail, allowing players to truly feel like a detective as they read the emotional behavior of every character in order to get to the truth.
LA Noire will be released for the Xbox and Playstation 3 in Spring 2011.

The foundation of L.A. Noire is a brand new technology called MotionScan that enables us to capture and scan every nuance of a real actor’s facial performances and put them right into the game itself. It provides a level of realism, detail, performance and emotion never seen before in a videogame, and brings them to life in a totally new way. This goes beyond the limited grid of data points delivered by traditional motion capture – these are the actual performances themselves, scanned and placed onto our digital characters. This marriage of gameplay and technology allows players for the first time ever to truly feel like a detective, reading the emotional behavior of every character. Furthermore, MotionScan lends itself perfectly to this type of game: one that focuses on characters and performances where everyone has something to hide.
