To achieve such results with Cinema 2.0, a living model is recorded by hundreds of cameras at first. With this data, a 3D build of a face, which can simulate different expressions, is created. AMD could help game developers to make dialogs and videos even more convincing. The animation of faces is a point where many games could be improved a lot.

It seems like AMD already found some partners for the technology: some big names of the game industry like Splash Damage, Crytek, Rebellion, Remedy and Blizzard were on site to watch the new Ruby demo.
