CGI based anime is the future, even if today still has its limitation (human models lack expression and hair is too stiff), with a little extra work, it can give great results

Also come with some handy pros
Animation is easier and faster
Animation cost goes down, so series dont need exorbitant number sales to pay off which translate on more possible S2-3 etc from series and/or cheaper BD/ DVD
60FPS anime

what does /a/ think about this kind of future? if I remember right, Japan kinda of accepted well Blue Steel anime

It's the future but I hate it.

I doubt that. The costs are recouped is assets can be reused a lot but building things from scratch takes a lot of resources.

Fuck off, stop spreading lies. 2D will/should never be overrun by CG. They both shine the most when they support each other. I hate CG but IF they have to use this shitty technique (what I'm saying isn't that CG is bad (it is though...) but that 2D is objectively superior on everything except perspective and rotation.

What I like about Arpeggio is that they were able to get away with this by having Iona be a emotionless creepy staring mental image. You can't even tell it's the CG's fault since she have the same dead look in the original source.

Pointless request. That's like asking that digitally colored and composed anime look like 80s shows with blotches of colors for moving parts and all that crap. Some things will obviously be different, that doesn't mean change is automatically bad.

>>111751401
60FPS anime is fucking pointless. That scene - a slow motion scene - is the dumbest possible thing to use. It looks like garbage. And even if it wasn't a slow-motion scene, it would still look like garbage.

Animation doesn't work the same way as capturing images on film. There is NO benefit to animating at 60FPS. The cost in terms of time, money and manpower are astronomical in exchange for fucking nothing. Video card marketing has no place here.

CG has been used in various forms for well over a decade now. Full CG anime is also nothing new, if you look at JRPG cutscenes. Even then, there are no signs it's "the future", and 2D is still the absolute dominant aspect of japanese animation, and will likely not change due to traditional practices, expertise if the animators, and most importantly, the budgets and work environments of most anime studios. A change to CG-only would likely be the death of all but 2-3 studios and 90% of yearly series, with 2D being only seen in awful shorts. So, like western animation, but still with the same small budgets, so it'd still all look crappy.

>>111751406

CG will never be indistinguishable from hand-drawn. Just like handdrawn can't look indistinguishable from stop-motion or something. They're built on entirely different principles.

It's a straight zoom with a simple perspective. There's nothing hard about it. The only real issue would be how much detail put into the ship's model, which would dictate how much time it took to animate. Even then, the motion of the camera is quick, so the frame count wouldn't need to be that large for the cut.

Western 2D animation may die because it focused on things that CGI can now do better. You cannot beat CGI in framerate. Models can squash and stretch. Physics and particle effects are handled by software engineers instead of artists.

Anime is going to live on because its strengths are in its surreal, stylized qualities. Anime likes changing speeds and hanging on shots, using optical illusions instead of squash and stretch, and the Japanese audience have a preference for lines over shapes.

This means Western 3D will always have an edge over JP-made 3D because traditional Western animation concepts translate better to CGI. But it also means there will always be a place for 2D in Japan, because its goals are clearly distinguishable from CGI.

You don't know what you are talking about. Squash and Stretch is a basic tenet of animation. Just because you're not seeing the extremes of something like Looney Tunes slapstick visual gags doesn't mean it isn't being employed.

And Western cartoons are dying because they've never been able to escape the Saturday Morning Ghetto.

I'm mixed on those. They work fine as openings, together with the the rad music and quick storyboarding cuts, but if you extended them to a full Jojo episode, the problems would quickly become obvious.

>I can't even watch Akito because it just makes me wish I was watching original Code Geass mechs instead.

Can't say I truly agree with that. All the mecha look and act different, even the old ones, but I like the dynamic camera and action.

2D is still best, but I I am mostly fine with 3D robots these days, at least compared to 3D people, which is still a bit hard to pull off.

CG is extremly frontloaded costwise.

Everything you want to do with CG must be finished in the pre-production.
After that it's way cheaper than hand-drawn animation.

Just this scene would eat up a large part of your animation if you want to drawn it. Any cuts where the camera moves through all 3D dimensions are hellish expensive - nothing can't be reused for the next cut and it would be jarring as fuck because anime animations are low-framerate animations.
There is a reason why sakuga cuts using static backgrounds or only move in one axis for the most times.

With CG you need only an animator and a guy who plans the movement of the virtual camera.

Virtually all anime are made in tiny office floors with no technology beyond some old computers. They're made with elbow grease and hunger. Anime would simply die just like western animation did if it went 3D, because it's small economy just can't sustain those budgets on a wide scale.

if that is a key, then that is pathetic. What I was getting at is that you are trying to say that the skill of needing to draw somehow vanishes just because you have to texture models. Its the same shit as people who think that people who use SAI Painter are somehow not artists, just because they don't draw it out on paper.

The entire point of using CG anime is that in theory, you don't have animation errors like this. In theory, you could possibly make it look indistinguishable from a 2D anime.

That said, the problem we have on our hands is that Cel Shading looks like shit for preserving an 'anime style.' Works decent for the Jojo openings because those are openings that mimic the panels of the manga, and Araki's artstyle lend itself well to cel shading.

Then you have the issue of models not even being completed. If you look at certain shots in Knights of Sidonia, you'll notice that some of the characters have white teeth floating in the red void of their mouth, not attached to anything.

It is not that CG is shit for the medium--- on the contrary. CG on anime would potentially be a thousand times better than what we have now. But Japan is shit at CG. They don't have the technology and unless someone gives them to it, we probably won't be seeing more of it due to production costs and animation limitations. If you wanted an anime in CG to look good, it'd ned to be animated at a bare minimum if 24fps per episode.

It's simply a matter of cost, talent and time, which Japan does not have. Give them ten times the regular budget and a few years, then you'd have a good CG Anime series. Why wait though?

As mentioned >>111752483 the transition to CG made the animation industry worse because of how time consuming it is. The only good CG shows I can think of in the west are Canadian and dated as fuck, being the first CG Television shows ever made (ReBoot, Beast Wars, War Planets).

tl;dr CG isn't shit, but they shouldn't use it due to cost and time.

Move your hand back in forth quickly in front of your face. Look at the trail a sparkler makes when you move it quickly in the dark. That's called "iconic memory". We don't perceive and process visual information the same when watching an actual object in motion compared to watching something on film.

That's why 2D animators manually add motion blur and distort forms. The brain doesn't automatically add those things to something you watch on film. That's why the animator has to. If they don't, you end up with the surreal soap-opera effect on the motion and it just looks wrong and fucking disgusting.

Heh thought there was going to be some catch somewhere when they were going to make some card game into an anime.

Also you do realise how hard it is to animate a digital doll right? You have to build a human instead of just capturing an image of it. There are many times that models will have issues like clipping or outright deformations when you try to move them a certain way. You also have to move the model for every second of film time.
It's not as simple you think it is.

Well, Pixar and all the other big CG studios aren't even trying to emulate 2D animations.

You could see how Arpeggio and Sidonia were trying to emulate several limited animation techniques. That's jarring because that's not what we're used to see in CG - it's also completly pointless because CG can avoid all the limitations of low-budget 2d animations.

Western 2D is dying because it hasn't sold theatrically since what, Tarzan? Even the most godawful 3D movie sells shitloads. 3D cartoons are still all completely for children but sell millions more because, as you said, it dazzles with the technology, even though it's still nothing actually impressive. They spend millions on hair and snow programs but the character animation is the same old shit.

As for television 2D, well that's just a disaster area. Is any current 2D show even animated by any westerners anymore? For things like Adventure Time, all they do is storyboards and I believe animatics and all the actual damn animation is done by Korea. I 'blame' western animation standards themselves, which when budgeted, leads to Flash shit with those desirable high frame rates, or is just entirely outsourced.

But in my opinion, 2D animation is still popular. I know way too many complete normalfags who fucking love "Attack on Titan" and other anime.

3D got a foot in the door with adults thanks to Pixar and not having decades worth of history as children's musicals and Saturday morning toy commercials.

2D occupies two realms with western audiences. One is wacky comedy for children and the other is as a sitcom delivery mechanism. Neither of which places any real importance on the animation. Rather, most shows the animation looks like garbage. Even something like the Simpsons, which has plenty of budget, still looks like sterile garbage. The animation has no function of its own beyond just being a facet of the vernacular of the show. There's no life in it compared to the early years.

Those things take human input too. Lots of input.

They're just tools for the artist eliminating repetitive tasks, namely redrawing the same thing over and over again. Of course those tools need some improvement to give the artist more freedom, but that's an iterative process.

One of the big problems I have with CG is that it doesn't do human interaction well.. Which is why a lot of anime these days have unimportant background characters walking the streets in CGI while the main characters in the focus are hand drawn.

Perhaps a poor example, but in >>111751276 picture, when the character's face is rubbing on the other's belly, there are no deformities whatsoever, whereas in traditional animation someone would have enough sense push a character's cheeks in if they're rubbing their face against something.

And for something like this >>111752951 , I suppose it's my personal opinion but it just looks so.. Uninspired. Downright lazy, and even a bit creepy. What I mean so say is, hand-drawn feels like there is more soul put into it.

One exception I'll make though is mechs and other weapon technology. It actually looks alright in CG form, provided they don't do something like CGI smoke trails.

What? Good 2D movies were always successful. Shitty 3D movies still fail. The switch in movies happened because everyone just follows Disney.

Disney got out of traditional animation because they were failing on the story side and Pixar was doing better writing, character design, and scenarios.
>With the success of Pixar, then-Disney CEO Michael Eisner decided that public tastes had changed, and that it was time to get out of hand-drawn animation altogether ending with Home on the Range. In 2005...
It's a case of business suits making creative decisions.

As for the last one,
>The Princess and the Frog (2009) began production under the working title The Frog Princess. It marked Disney's return to traditional animation, as it was the studio's first traditionally animated film since Home on the Range (2004).
The Princess and the Frog, which was largely well received by critics and audiences alike and a financial success (grossing over $267 million).

That's expensive because drawing requires humans. The better CG gets the more humans can focus on the artistic parts such as scene arrangement, inputting the movement they want, re-rendering it if they don't like it, etc. instead of needing a korean sweatshop to draw the scene.

It should also allow them to do QCing at later stages.

Bro, that's pretty much what it's meant for, hell it's the fucking reason it wasn't until recently that Disney-Pixar and Dreamworks went with what amounted to a no close-to-actual-humans rule.

To me, "meant for" means "primary purpose".

If it's developed with human models in mind (hell, there even is Poser) then you cannot deny that purpose. Thus it's meant for both.

But drawing is an artistic part of animation. And I said why not just draw it themselves, not just send it to koreans. They can just draw it exactly how they want it the first time without any expensive code and computers to render all the the physics, clothes, hair, lighting, deformations, trees, snow, wind, and everything else. All that becomes just slightly different strokes of pencil.

And if it frees up more time for the "real artistic parts", shouldn't that result in more freedom and variety? Maybe spending hundreds of millions QCing everything to pinpoint Pixar perfection doesn't make it more artistically expressive.
>>
CG is shit and always will be
>>
3D can cost cheaper or more expensive than 2D according to its quality model-wise and anmation-wise.

When it comes to inorganic things such as cars, trains, and buildings the animation cost is very low since its easy to animate.
The cost of modelling inorganic model varies on its complexity and quality level.
In most shows case, buildings and cars are very low quality and complexity-wise.

In the other hand, organic things are Very Hard to animate. This alone makes the cost of having a full 3D show very high.

Doing these things manually is fine if you want to focus on them. But you have to do it all the time for animation to look consistent, even if it's not an important part of the scene. Which becomes difficult when you factor in time constraints.
That's why we occasionally get QUALITY episodes. Remember psycho pass ep 18? Characters were fucking teleporting from pose to pose because they had to rush it.

You can't get decent hand animators in the west for cheap. They expect much higher standards of living than the japs since moon animators are often crazy otaku who just want to draw cute girls all day.

It would take years to build up the kind of well-oiled machine the Japanese studios have.

>>111755194

See, if this was CG, it would still look cool, but it wouldn't be the same. The fact that the animator achieves the illusion of 3D space and objects, without having any actual 3D space and objects whatsoever, is what impresses me. If they were actual 3D models being played around with in a 3D set, the motions themselves would still have to be done and would still be difficult, but it'd just be manipulation of something that actually exists in the created space, like stop motion.

Stop motion is still incredibly impressive because of all the restrictions involved and hands-on quality that it requires, of course. But I never get the same feeling from CG, it either looks really cheap and awful, or too impossibly polished.

I love when hand-drawn fanboys reposting the handful sakuga scenes from the last 30 years to have a point.

Time
Budget

I would really love if some were to make an experiment

give 2 studios, a 1 minute script and tell em to make it
1 studio specialize in traditional animation
other tries to make 2D animation using 3D

then show the result together with the budget spent, time and personal used
>>
>>111755480
>impossibly polished
So you're not used to great CG animation?
>>
>>111755653
That's not a good comparison though, since CG pays off more over time since you can reuse the models. For a 1 minute scene the initial effort of modeling everything will not be amortized.

Unless you stipulate insanely complex objects, camera movements and special effects as part of the script.

It's easily to skew it in the favor of one or the other.

>>111755717
lets say this, 1 city desing can be sold or shared among Animatos

there are many places in japan that are iconic and used many time

if one studio does hte render of lets say, Tokyo Tower, and other studio then wants to use an scene in the tokyo tower, then they can sell/ rent said render and then the studio add the post production effects to add its own style

now add this to stock characters, regular vehicles, etc

the idea still that we cant really judge a 2D vs 3D work, unless we see a work that uses both so we can pair em together

ok, lets put it easy, ask an studio to remake 1 scene of Blue Steel on traditional animation and compare em
>>
>>111755245

That first shot is obviously 2D, isn't it?

>>111755272

>You can't get decent hand animators in the west for cheap. They expect much higher standards of living than the japs since moon animators are often crazy otaku who just want to draw cute girls all day.

They definitely are extremely enthusiastic about their cute girls.
http://sakuga.yshi.org/post/show/7527/atsushi_nishigori-iizuka_haruko-illustration-isao_

But even well paid ones and good studios are the same way. On top of pay, I also think just the standard for animation is entirely different. Something actually hand-drawn animated by westerners, and minimally helped by koreans, would probably fit budgets just fine and have lots of cool stuff, but wouldn't have perfect frame rates. So they either aim high by sending off to Korean handdrawn for high frame rate, or aim low with budget Canadian flash for high frame rate.

>The current generation of western animators hasn't been trained to do it, so you'll have to retrain your entry level guys. It would take years to build up the kind of well-oiled machine the Japanese studios have.

This is what I thought. I can't think of much avenues that would even allow them to do handdrawn animation work in the first place, so there's no way for anyone to get any practice (or even incentive to practice, maybe outside of more youtube views for their shorts). Japan has a bit of this issue too, because older animators got most of their practice and worked their way up doing inbetweens, which are mostly outsourced now. But it seems westerners don't do inbetweens OR even keyframes. This sort of stuff is always on my mind because I feel bad for all those american handdrawn animators that must barely get any work.
>>
>>111755836
If you want to compare time and budget than any such small-scale test is bound to fail since it's simply not realistic and largely depends on how you account costs and such.
And a shared model database does not exist as far as I know.

I think comparing some 2D and 3D gundam shows would be easier. But even then cost and success don't just depent on quality of the animation but also on the plot and what else is airing that season.
>>
>>111756006
>And a shared model database does not exist as far as I know.
this was justa theory
>>
As much as I hate to say it. Maybe ponyfags are onto something with Flash being used. It's pretty much the best of both worlds when you look at it. The cost cutting of only having a once or twice rendered model, but without 3D's time investment to get past plastic toy looking models.
>>
What's the deal talking about CG vs. handdrawn if people only cherrypicking the handful well animated stuff?

See all the FLCL scenes. First it was an higher budget bi-monthly released OVA and second the series is already 14 years old.
>>
>>111756078
Flash is easy for that kind of Cartoons, a regular anime have way to many details, colors and shadows to make flash anything worthy
>>
>>111755869
>I feel bad for all those american handdrawn animators that must barely get any work.
These days they work on character designs and storyboards.
>>
>>111756115
For the same reason 3D fags wont pony up a recent full 3D series, but instead rely on it being used as effects.
>>
>>111756232
What?
>>
>>111756078

Most handdrawn anime does just fine with being time and cost-saving while not looking like shit all the time like Flash does. There would be no advantage towards using it at all. If anything, Flash is the worst of both worlds just above Hanna Barbera tier stuff, and it's rise is a result of Canada being dumb.and forcing it hard without any real skilled animators.

>>111756115

That wasn't the point of those. It was to show some of the unique qualities of 2D animation. How old it is doesn't matter.
>>
>>111756403
tl;dr, cherrypicking.
>>
>>111755516
There have been CGI mecha shows for almost 15 years now, so I don't see the point of your shitpost
>>
>>111756202

By animators being given work, I meant them being given actual animation work. If I watch a western cartoon, I want to believe any of them actually animated anything happening on the screen. Isn't it just sad that it doesn't? Isn't there something wrong with the fact that western Animators don't even get to animate anything at all in their own western cartoons?
>>
If CGI is the future of anime then the anime industry is officially dead to me. I might as well watch 3DPD drama
>>
American animation switched to cg because somewhere around toy story some suits got the idea that if a movie costs more it also must make more money. Which is ridiculous.
>>
>>111756154

Don't forget things like different camera angles or characters that aren't in 3/4's profile on a flat plane with everybody else at all times.

>>111755516

I only said it was my preference. I admitted right there that most 2D ones were bad. Most 3D ones are too though.
>>
I'm impressed by the KanColle CG because of the short production time.

They had maybe less than a year production time and there are less than 4 months to go until the first episode will air.

As someone who studies both 2D and 3D (modelling and) animation, outside the anime industry France, obviously, I'd say that animating is a lot simpler in 3D. Designing characters and drawing a few keyframes in 2D is obviously faster in 2D, but after you spend 12 hours modeling your 3D character, done rigging the bones for animation, then the animating process is a lot faster than drawing the entire thing. So yeah, CG animation is faster, you're wrong, murikans suck at it.

The medium itself allows for/forces more care to be put into coloration and shading, and the effort that the artist puts into each individual frame shows through, more often then not we see more personal touches with cel animation, as well as a more impressive display of craft

3D will never be superior to 2D, because it just can't bedeformed like 2D to show face expressions and intence action animation. Remember FLCL, guys.

>Animation is easier and faster
>Animation cost goes down,

Stop spreading this bullshit. CGI is as time and money consuming in a different way, not easier. Often more so than the current method of animating if you try to go for anything over Blue Steel quality which was still pretty low.

The only reason some people are trying it is purely due to the fact that someone at the top of the production staff wants to do it that way and you have to retrain staff to make shit in CG so it's not taking over any time soon.

But go ahead, you can interpolate any 24fps+ footage so it looks just like 60fps.

Ok, let's talk lodoss then. It certainly does look great, but it also does many things that modern animation does better.

- It's not animated one 1s, not even on some pans where it would avoid some judder.
- It suffers from the Conspicuously Light Patch effect as tvtropes calls it
- Some special effects are just terrible (pic related)
- The backgrounds are quite simple most of the time, we have better scenery porn these days
- Scene lighting/light cones are mostly absent except for a few scenes where lighting is an important effect
- Action scenes are at times quite underwhelming, basically consisting of "camera shake" over a character cel (static or looped at times), a looped background to emulate movement and then a black frame with two slashes symbolizing their swords clashing.
Even one of the big frigging dragons was just a static cel being moved over the screen, looking angry


In other words there is a very large variance in Lodoss' quality with the lows being quite bad.

Interpolation is not the same as genuine 60fps, it causes atrocious artifacts at times. that said, the interpolated sequence in >>111751401 looks quite nice. dat flowing hair.


MMD videos look nicer at 60fps than 30fps in my opinion. But the models are, well, MMD-tier.

Oh, and I forgot to mention:

Zero camera movement through the scenes, only pan&zoom.

While complex camera movements are still quite uncommon in modern anime they at least happen occasionally, probably painted over CG scenes to ensure consistency.

One thing CGI needs to fix is the hair.
>>
>>111763354
Long hair is among the most difficult parts to animate as far as characters are concerned.
>>
>>111763354
Problem is, hair is interpreted as LOLPOLYGONS meaning you need to trash a fuckawfully big part on it for only slight quality increase.

With 2D, you just phone in a couple more hours.
>>
>>111763354
Check some action cuts.

Hair is like never properly animated outside of close-ups.
>>
>>111763423
Well, anime style hair isn't the same as real-world hair. They're more like sheets or lobes. So that makes it somewhat easier but still difficult to translate into 3D models since they're perspective-dependent.
Although the jelly blob style in >>111752951 looks surprisingly nice.

That's a strength of drawn animation, yes. You don't need to modify a 3D model to add on a few hairs without making things look weird.
>>111763472
Yes I know, it's just with CGI that it ALWAYS looks like shit. Hair in anime just doesn't work the same in CGI.

CGI still can't do good looking hair.

But with anime mouths you can just go for a solid white thing or no teeth at all.

I begrudgingly accept CGI for mecha but most of the time it feels so fucking fake and out of place.

A.Z is really bad about it.

CGI can be good. I guess it just costs alot.

Blizzard have always had good CGI, I remember I thought Diablo 2 cinematics looked amazing at the time, and say what you will about D3 but the cinematics still look damn good.

And even then it works best when there's an in-universe reason for the (almost) inevitable shininess.

Prime example: Mecha. You don't expect the material there to look in any way connected to reality, and in fact I'd say sleek mecha designs profit from 3DCG.

>>111764103
I think Blizzard blows an entire year worth of WoW money on their trailers, I wouldn't mind a full movie done in that quality to be honest.

It would be interesting to see Blur try some anime style CGI trailers.

They're the go to studio for fancy ass CGI.

The real problem with CGI in anime is how low budget anime is in comparison to American shows. You can tell the difference between good CGI and bad CGI more than good 2D and bad 2D.

They could easily add some shaders to make them more dusty to emulate wear and tear

Rust/Dust filters probably wouldn't look very "anime" unless you're going for some gritty cyberpunk style where everything looks like it's in varying states of decay.

The problem with CGI is that it can look nice in action and fast movements, and especially mixed with regular animation, it can be blended in very well. But when things slow down, and the scene takes place up closer, its easier to notice the stiffness of the animation, and the awkwardness of CGI.

They're still learning how to do it.
I personally don't mind it as long as they keep improving.
I'd give it a couple years until it actually looks good.
What I can't stand, however, is when they use really bad models with shitty walk animations for background characters and copy paste them everywhere.
>>
>>111754073
But the soundtrack was sick, you have to admit.

Competent studios will produce good looking shows independent of full CG, mixed CG (like it's common) or full hand-drawn.

But CG will never look like hand-drawn animation. CG anime will evolve to it's own medium.

>>
>>111766027

Fluid movement is something that can be done with CGI if you have the time and money, but the problem lies with collision.

>>111764056

This scene looks pretty good, but you can clearly see that when the barrels collide it lacks inertia and possible model clipping is covered with the spark effect.

Have you ever watched The Clone Wars? The production value because of the CGI was ridiclous. I know its not anime but CGI being "cheap" is a common misconception.

Look at Total Eclipse, the CGI sprites and models were expensive but the benefit was for the forthcoming VN for TE allowed age to recycle the models and sprites without wasting the time or resources or money to build them from scratch.

Also CGI in MJP was pretty gorgeous.

>>111751145
Maybe it'll be simpler, currently I'm investigating on how to create 2D pictures from 3D models (which means, I'm not creating shit, just learning until somebody brilliant actually do it). In the future maybe you will download pieces of software instead of video formats, algorithms could transform 3D graphics into 2D graphics in real time and add all sort of effects that imitate traditional animation, making it even easier than CGI for anime. So basically you'll be watching a video game, made by motion capture, 3D design and coding.

The good thing is, there's no reason to think it'll even look different from traditional drawing, and good artists(musicians, painters, writers, coders) will still be around, and you know what they say about artists and their tools.
