Why can't anime get CG right?
>>
Because that costs money.
>>
>>136167795
Tradition and a massive resistance to change. The industry practically rioted when a company was about to discontinue their line of pencils or pens used for animation. The complaints were so bad, the items weren't discontinued

Why was it going to be discontinued then if it was such a staple?
Give me the deets, this is kind of interesting

Ergo Proxy got CG right.

Because it costs more money than hand drawn but its a lot faster than hand drawn so usually its just used to finish an episode on schedule.

Surely this thread is bait.

It's gotten better these past 2-3 seasons. It's still noticeable but not as jarring in some shows.

It's a shitty western cartoon.

>>136167795
GiTS did. Ergo Proxy did. Ghibli did. Even Cowboy Bebop did back then. It's just that anime most anime doesn't have huge budgets, so all the good CGI animators in Japan are working where the money is, in the game industry.

I'm still wondering if they're still using the same shittyass computers from over a decade ago. There's no good reason shows are animated at 900p instead of 1080p.
>>
>>136167795
Doing it right is too expensive.
>>
Because people who know shit about CG go work on games or movies and anime has to bait the leftovers by giving them salaries twice that of regular animators.

You can get decent cash with no skills so why bother improving?
>>
>>136169163
>You can get decent cash with no skills so why bother improving?
Because you could be making even more money?
Who would chose to earn less than more given the choice?

It's not that people working on anime are not improving, but if they're good enough they will move to something that pays better.

The Iron Giant is OBJECTIVELY the greatest film to ever show itself on the face of this shitty, unworthy earth. Ok, I might have exaggerated that a bit, but you've got shit taste man.

Because framerate is a bitch when you're superimposing it on 2D backgrounds. When going full 3D there's no excuse to having it run smoothly.

>>136167795
Most western animation that mixes cgi and 2D well is done by film studios like Disney or Warner Bros. who know what they're doing. Look at tv shows like Justice League and you'll see a few examples of unfitting cgi used to cut costs like you do in shitty mecha anime.

And Japan had barely any fully-cgi works because they're less familiar with it and resistant to change, which is honestly for the better.

Isn't that just because it takes an ungodly amount of time to render?

Also, those Code Geass OVAs have excellent CGI.

The shit are you talking about? You have to be blind or exceptionally retarded not to be able to see what an amazing piece of animation the Iron Giant was. Even though I know you're just holding up your elite weeb status, it's still pretty fucking dumb.

The Iron Giant is an impressive work that was amazing for it's time and still holds up today. They even developed a new piece of rendering software for that movie; solely to give the Giant's CG imperfections to mesh better with the Hand-drawn aspects.

>>136174733
>>136174859
I believe he means there were much higher quality works in 1995 than there are now. Which could be argued, but I believe in some cases is correct.

>>136174740
Honestly this, to the Japanese CG isn't a tool for them to use, but a cost cutting technique. They don't bother withe the high quality stuff (unless you're like Square Enjx who have an obsession), because they don't want to bother actually getting good at it, or spending the money to make a quality product.

Though obviously there are exceptions.
>>
>>136175094
Yes, I know The Iron Giant is magnificent piece of work, visually and by its story. I've watched it before. I'm saying that visuals don't mean everything though. You can still make a quality piece of work with the limited budget you have.

True. They've been at the front of special effects for over 30 years.

It costs too much and the japs are too poor and irrelevant.

Typically using cheap CG is a shortcut so they don't have to draw as much.
A typical 1 cour anime only gets like 1 million usd for budget anyways, so I don't know why you'd expect them to have decent CG at all.
Etotama had great CG, but it was an anomaly.
From what I've seen, the only shows that are willing to experiment with CG and put in the spotlight are kids shows owned by big companies that make bank off the toy market.

CG for mecha is becoming rapidly more advanced and popular.
Then you occasionally get things like GARO that do it great as well.
>>
>>136167795
only Americans can do CGI because their base market is 300 million citizens which allows them to expand worldwide very quickly or at the start of the release

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyiDDQYPUIs

this little cartoon was millions per episode because things in the US that are popular are always hundreds of million dollars worth of popularity whereas in Japan only the very best of the best have the potential to reach that kind of money, and even then cannot produce series like this Star Wars cartoon

Anime is low framerate and really choppy if you put it next to something like iron giant.

>>136176038

>>136167795
They're getting a little better over time. CG in Rokka no Yuusha didn't stand out so terribly, except for the exploding heads thing.

The real problem is when they use it for things that get more than a few seconds of screentime.

>>136176675
The CG in guilty Gear is fucking spectacular.

>>136167795
Unless it's disney western 2d animations always bankrupt the production team / never gain back their production budget by a longshot.
>>
Why is Black Rock Shooter the only anime that did CGI well ?
>>
>>136173777
Look's like wasted potential.
>>
I thought the new bits in the arpeggio movie looked pretty good, almost 2D in spots.

Then again, I was pretty slow and didn't notice the series was all CG until about episode 3, in retrospect it was really obvious.

CG is often used in anime to reduce costs, not increase it.

I can't name a better animated film. I used to watch iron giant three times a week when I was a kid.

>>136176545
Almost all traditionally animated feature films made in the west look smoother than Japanese animated feature films.

You clearly have no idea what you're talking about. Lurk a little more why don't you?

>>136176545
>>136178461
Smooth =/= better. While it's an obvious cost-cutting procedure, movement in anime has a lot of weight when done well.
>>
>>136178970
Execution is always key. I've seen the last traditionally animated film Dreamworks did and it looked like shit with all the glaring CGI and little hand drawn stuff.
