Do bits of this look cg to anyone else? The bit where the feniche and build strike join fists also looked like cg. Not hating on it or anything and dont want it to become one of THOSE kinds of threads, but are there any other examples of the this. Where a mixture of both 2d and 3d is used for the same elements. I noticed fafner exodus used 2D occasionally to my surprise for its mechs, despite it mostly seeming 3D
Why would you want your 2d to be 3d and vice versa, inconsistent animation is the mark of an incompetent team.
There's a scene of the full armor VF0 in Macross Zero that's hand drawn close up but fades to CGI at a distance to transition into a CGI Itano circus.
Watching the scene those bits do stick out as they do look a lot more on model than everything else before it. It could just be really well animated but it kind of lacks the weight and the movement feels slightly awkward compared to the rest of the scene
Again maybe I'm just not used to good animation or stuff being on model.
But then the only me ha show I've been watching at the moment is IBO so that would explain a lot
I'm dying to know how build fighters had better animation than SEED, SEED Destiny, 00, AGE, and IBO with very little instances of QUALITY.
It appears I have my answer >>13835248 >>13835291
Nah. Outside of G-Reco, 00 had the best looking animation of any Gundam TV series production.
LOCKON LOCKON LOCKON ROCKON LOCKON LOCKON LOCKON LOCKON LOCKON LOCKON
You people did this for Thunderbolt as well.
For all of the wanking over how perfect 2D is, the moment well-drawn 2D art comes in you accuse it of being CG or traced from CG. You seem to have little faith in your preferred medium.
We already have the perfect mech porn show.
>00 had the best looking animation of any Gundam TV series production.
Is this a joke? Virtually every 90s gundam has better animation than 00S2. They purposely simplified down the line work for the S2 suits, using the excuse that it would allow the fights to be more animated, but then they just had the suits teleport around all over the place with GN particle hax. Everything in S2 from the suit designs to the animation and fight choreography was a huge downgrade compared to S1. It was honestly terrible looking.
>00fags incapable of making any sort of logical counter argument
I should have known better. Go back to myanimelist with your shit taste please.
>Se Jun Kim is consistently amazing
This. Seriously, he REALLY nailed the Kanada-style animation in robots. His works are far better than Obari who's now a lazy fucker who didn't even animate his robots yet still overrated by many.
>Nah. Outside of G-Reco, 00 had the best looking animation of any Gundam TV series production.
Animation has never been Obari's most notable strength. I'll agree that his animation is much more average than most people claim; it's his mastery of perspective and lighting that sets him apart.
Anon just because it's not obvious, that doesn't mean it's not there. Not that it should matter what tools or techniques are used anyway. All that matters is whether you believe the illusion
Roto is actually the most jarring of the whole lot, remember the whole fiasco with Aku no Hana?
That's not to say it's inherently bad, but it has its place. Like, it makes sense when you want to create a visual atmosphere where the line between real and fake is blurred, like in some sort of PKDesque narrative. But as some way of combining strengths of 2D and 3D it's not going to be any better than just mastering one or the other.
The technology used should tell a story as much as the story itself. How an object is visually represented carries meaning, to arbitrarily portray it is to completely disrespect the visual medium in its entirety.
Hell, here's the genga, while we're at it.
Have a little more faith in 2D animation, anon. Early GBF episodes are on-model most of the time. They only goes off-model on unimportant shit like Felini vs Aila or the wacky race episode.
Only Victory and Turn A were better looking than 00, and Victory is about the same. I don't why people exaggerate about the particle hax. You had lots of elaborate large-scale fights in 00S2. The movie is more frustrating, cause it's pretty and has great designs, but not very interesting fights. Although it's still interesting for a gundam show.
