Hi, I want to have a few things clear, EA is doing these photoshoots but that doesn't mean the 3d faces are done automatically so it's not like there's a "make face from pics" button as far as i know, some manual work still has to be done.
With a lot of reference and neutral lighting/expressions is better but i don't think EA is going the "Rockstar/LA Noire way" with FIFA.
The software someone was asking about is Adobe Bridge, some standard image viewer like ACDSee or IrfanView.
As far as I know and from the screenshots there's no new graphics engine for fifa12. The Impact Engine is a physics/collisions engine so the inclusion of certain faces in PC won't depend on the Impact Engine.
I haven't read a lot about FIFA12 so you may know something i don't. Please correct me if i'm wrong.
