How soon until 4K2K anime?
only for 3DCG anime movies, but the amount of details needed will probably not possible with normal anime techniques - unless you want simply upscales or SD / HD material mastered at 4K.
>monitor could easily do 4k
>forever stuck with 1080
I want to die.
Honestly I don't know why this isn't a thing yet.
Everyone that draws art knows you draw your picture like at 10000x10000 or whatever. It's tons easier to rescale to whatever you want, you can add way more details, it's easier to draw and everything else.
So they're already drawing way bigger pictures then they need to. I think it has to do more with the size and TVs then with actual production costs. As only the processing cost and bandwith would increase, not the actual work done by artists.
I'm still clueless why it too so long ot get to 1080p majority of anime is still in 720p
There is a 4K TV channel already in Japan, doesn't air anime though. They might air some Ghibli movie remaster in the future, but I don't know if the fansubbers can capture it.
Proportions become harder to maintain as the physical size of the object being drawn are that much larger. Straight lines become squiggles.
It would take a new generation of animators trained to draw large pictures from birth to get it all done right.
720p anime on a 96DPI 24" monitor looks like ass especially when its a couple feet away from my face. Is there some sort of magical method you guys use to make it not look like shit at 720p?
I don't see a problem with vector imaging being used by studios neither, but don't they use that anyways? Since it produces clean, consistent lines. They use that and 3d base model references for consistent proportions/poses, right?
I guess 4k2k is not really going to happen any time soon seeing as the standard resoltuion is at like 1366x768 thanks to people using laptops from 10+ years ago with snail internet.
Low quality cable broadcasting and fan subbers grabbing it at that quality doesn't help neither I guess...
I'd take increased animation quality over higher resolution art any day.
Anime uses a lot of clear distinct lines, it sucks looking at them when they're blurry/a bag of ass
