Some day in the future anime won't be analogue or digital, just imaged straight into our brains by radio towers throughout neo-tokyo

It depend of the genre
I prefer mecha with old style animation, but digital for moe anime is totally okay.

Yep, that's the definition of cherrypicking. Thanks for proving the point.

It's called a smear frame. It doesn't restrict itself to accurate anatomy so that the transition looks smoother in full motion, not the stilted gif.
>>
>>122071784
So is all of anime. Even modern anime. There's no such thing as a non-hand-drawn anime unless you're talking about CGI anime.
>>
>>122071821
That's not a smear, though, anon. And it doesn't make the movement smoother, it makes it look like extra fingers sprouted out of her palm.
>>
>>122071821
Pro-tip: When making the best out of a low frame rate where it's 8 frames per second rather than 24 or 12, you should make sure you're not repeating three frames of a hand having seven fingers.
>>
>>122071829
"Hand-drawn" is a bad term and people need to stop using it.
"Hand-painted" or "cel" animation is a better term.
Modern anime is digitally painted and mastered over sketches done on paper.

It's not just about the shift to digital, but also animators back then were better. Young animators these days only know how to do flashy action that stands out.

>>122072021
That's kind of the point of the imagery in that scene.
>>
>>122071821
It's not a smear, but it is an intentional distortion and it's barely noticeable if you watch the actual sequence.
>>
>>122071998
Let's play it back at regular speed. It's part of the stock footage, which is running much faster than 8 frames per second.

Damn right it is. Modern anime is too sterile, too perfect. It no longer gives the feeling that each frame was drawn by a pair of human hands.

No it still gives that feeling.
Full cgi doesn't.

idk, but drawing on paper feels so much rewarding than drawing digitally, even some professional artists that works digitally aspire to do more painting on real canvas.

If digital animation is superior to cels, then why do animators not use detailed shading anymore?
>>

But they still draw on paper. The only thing that changed is that they don't photocopy the end result on cels.

Japan is literally worse than George Lucas. The standards have been in the fucking shitter for high budget anime since the transition.

You are aware that even during the cel era of animation, people were already depending on machines like the photocopier to put drawings into cels, right? The only thing that changed is what is scanned and where it's scanned.

>>122072530
This was made as a troll image right? That Paul guy doesn't actually exist right?
>>
>>122071517
If you're into pretty stills then sure. Also, old anime had very little variety in designs. We'd never have shows like kaiba, mononoke, tatami, saraiya goyou, gankutsuou, tekkon kinkreet, tatami, kuuchuu buranko or kyousou giga back than.

So stop this onegaishi fuckin masu.

I'm amazed at how shit his drawings are below and reminded of how shit and full of rotoscoping bullshit his Doctor Who anime has.

He does, but it was indeed meant to troll people. He loves shading, but he's kinda reasonable about it. Or at least he is these days.

>>122072815
He posts on /m/ with streams of him shading things. He regrets his reign of image-making.
