photoshop for video

Photoshopping photos is one thing.  Imagine being able to photoshop a single frame of video, and then letting the computer do all the rest of the frames for you?  Better yet, imagine doing this to 4k video (4 times the resolution of DVD).  There's a software company that is showing off it's software:

Granted, this short 3 minute video took days to render (and I'm not even sure if that's a desktop, high-end desktop, server farm, what?).. But I would imagine if I'm just doing web quality video (say 320 x 200), I might be able to render a short one minute video.  You know where I'm going with this right?  I could film myself in drab, photoshop a single frame (clean up skin, add makeup), then let the computer finish off the frames.

I am curious how far this could take it.  I mean I'm sure it couldn't let fill in accessories (jewelry, hair), that would require it to recreate a 3d object.  I think this is simply mapping a skin surface and stretching/tilting as needed.  Not that it's an easy task, but that's just it's limitations.
