During my final presentation, someone asked me what I think some of the applications of my project would be. I mentioned animation and simulations, but I also said that it could be cool for video games: while you're playing, intelligent cameras could be recording your gameplay, and you could then edit it all together later.
Yesterday I took a break from writing my final report to play a little Team Fortress 2. Guess what they just added? The Replay Update, which records your matches and then allows you to make movies by editing 3 different camera views together.
They do have achievements for making movies, however. Maybe that's what my project is missing.
