    I hope it will at least look like Michael this time. Most likely it will be stupid because they will use impersonator.

    ok now they have the hologram look like a new gen video game (Xbox one, ps4)... IF they are going to do this can we wait until it's right? I mean I guess if it were on stage and no close ups.... I don't know, maybe!!

    They def need new artists to be exact..

    IMO it's without a doubt way better then the Billboard one because unlike the Billboard one this one appears to be completely digitally rendered.
    It's still not good enough though.

    The "Billboard hologram" didnīt look and didnīt dance like Michael.
    The person in the new picture doesnīt look like Michael, either.

    Doesnt look like him. Technology wise why cant they just copy an actual photo of mj to create the hologram.

    Last night I watched a short part of Textor's talk (it's no longer available). In that he mentioned recording thousands of facial movements. So as far as I understand, they record movements and then using those they can get the hologram move the face any way they want. Given they can't do that with MJ, they might need to use a double and try to make that double like MJ. Obviously the limitation would be it wouldn't look and act exactly like MJ.

    That makes sense, but wouldn't they already have thousands of hours of film on Michael using every facial expression? From interviews to videos to tours to home movies-years and years of film already.

    I imagine they need a 3D scan.

    What I watched was a periscope of the talk (partial), now it says it's no longer available. It showed a gray , clay like face - very much like the MJ mold faces - making face movements.

    I'm assuming if they record all possible facial movements in 3d then they could get the hologram face to do any movement they want. I'm furthermore assuming they get someone else to do the movements and then they add a virtual MJ face on top of it.

    Ivy when you say someone else doing the movement do you mean a impersonator to do the movement?

    Like I said, it's just an assumption.

    What I saw was like a face mold. Like the one below. It was moving the face muscles. I don't know if it was pure animation or if it had a real human (a double) doing the movements. Regardless which, as it isn't Michael, it won't look and move exactly like him.
