One reason is that video is only 2D. Another is that data captured via
other means can be more precise and at a higher rate. A third is that even
with unlimited data, emulating some things is incredibly difficult. For
example, there are countless videos of people talking. The biomechanics are
well understood. But no visual simulation of a person speaking has ever
done a really convincing job of it.
