Researchers finally crack realistic, real-time rendered hair in video games
Finally, future video games will have "realistic" hair... Lara will have super-realistic hair ( more volume, better defined ) in the next TR...can't wait!
The leap to this new realistic hair will be the same leap that TressFX is to "regular" hair in TR! :
Pros and Cons of TressFX:

( TressFX is good in that video above, but its flaws are exposed...hair is too thin, weird ear-hair if you look at skin just in front of her ear, and when her hair "flips" in the wind at the very end of the video the color reverses ( negative ) for just an instant...distracting when it does that, and artificial-looking ( like shimmering effect, not good ) ). So while TressFX is a big leap forward in realistic hair for 3D/games, this new research is the "next leap" in ultra-realistic hair for 3D games... ).
