Adobe, giant of all things creative, unveiled project Felix – a 3-D A.I. powered rendering tool that puts Jan van Eyck to shame.
With Felix, layman users (99% of the Internet) can now build creative assets without the knowledge of a designer, or 3-D artist, or anything. It’s just another plug-in where the creative juices are left to flow freely and seamlessly.
Felix in motion
How this works is Felix heavily relies on machine learning processes via various algorithms to produce photo-realistic images. Or something Terminators did right before everything went to hell on Earth.
Felix is good though, at least for now. Adobe made the AI-powered tool to dissect so-called spatial distances between two or more given objects, and to deconstruct how light falls onto a surface among other things. So for example, if you “drop” an object onto some scenery, Felix will immediately recognize where that object – in relation to its size and volume – should exactly fit.
Afterwards, what Felix does is It, He, She renders a panoramic photo and fills out all blanks in the immediate surroundings, while light renders exactly as if it were made with human input. The rendering part is called V-Ray and communicates with Felix’s algorithms in a way that all pixels, light and dark, knows its place upon a final drawing of a given scene.
The future is indeed nigh, but what do you think? Will the machines take over step-by-step? Or humanity is tougher than silicone and wire? Share your thoughts below.
