Why is so much charm lost when animation goes from hand drawn/analogue to digital?
>>
>>122375871
I prefer Birdy's new design.
>>
So we call the lack of detail "charm" now?
>>
I'm tired of explaining how digital era animation has awful use of color.

It's not about shading you fucking cunts, it's about COLOR. USE OF COLOR.

I prefer cel animation but it all boils down to the style of the artists/animators. Budget and talent also help.

It's gotten better since 08 though.

It wouldn't have looked good with that design. It would have been two lines directly underneath her necklace thing, and you wouldn't have associated them with collar bones.

I prefer the old design, and the old style, but 2008 has better drawn PLOT

>>122375981
I miss that kind of "grainy" feeling the old one had.
I get the new one has perfectly colored and uniform tones thanks to the digital, but the imperfection gave the past animation a kind of charm.
>>
>>122376129
Because no way would digital be cheaper and less labour intensive, right?

Just wait til full CG becomes the new standard in nipland.
>>
>>122376192
>I miss that kind of "grainy" feeling the old one had.
It was always filmed on actual film.
Live action film has also lost grain because cameras are all digital now.

Collarbones are sex as fuck. Of course it bothers me.
>>
>>122376197

That's not the problem.
The real reason is that people associate non-CGI cartoons with the really silly kids stuff, while CGI flicks are family entertainment.

The old OVA looked weird as fuck. It quickly throws the manga artstyle oiut the window, and the entire thing is a dull shade of brown and yellow.

The new anime is brilliant, and looks brilliant. It is a 10/10 adaptation.
>>
Again OP?

Like I said in the other thread, just watch fucking Dennou Coil.

New Jojo looks great when you watch the show instead of a still image.
New Sailor Moon looks terrible regardless.
New DBZ doesn't exist outside of OPs, and it looks bad anyway.

Animators don't do the colors, fuckwit. They have another person to do that job.

Care to elaborate more?
Cause I don't see how hand drawn anime had better use of color. It looks overall dimmed but nothing too special to me.
>>
>>122375871
if charm is lost, I would think it be on the animators back, not the tools.

Though having said that, the charm of animation can come from it's materials. However, materials can be digitally replicated, thus accusing digital products for any loss in charm would still be incorrect, as it would be the worker who made the fault, not the digital software itself.

The snowman was animated on a material that no longer exists today, but can be recreated digitally, so even then, if you wished to replicate something like that, you could very easily do so.

Final Fantasy Tactics, the War of the Lions version used 3d models, but had a pencil draw look at the same time, which made a very unique and charming visual scene.

overall, however, charm comes from overall execution, not one single factor. If tools are ever to blame....:
>recreating old Disney classics with 3D hollywood effects.
It's something like that.
>>
>>122376352
Because the noise and grain of cels are natural?
>>
>>122376233
>spend years defending digital against film on /p/
>find out the charm of old anime is that they were actually on film
life is ironic
>>
>>122376468
No, but that's just a side effect of it being recorded on film. The sheen is something they do consciously.
>>
I really hope this becomes a meme

Where were you guys in 2007 when I was trying to argue that cels will always look better than digital paint?

Sort of, I agree. Though that is because people abandoned 4:3, not because widescreen is inherently bigger.

What the fuck? Film grain is a video artifact, it is NOT the animation or the cinematography. It's like saying moldy sandwiches are better because they add flavor.

Something being the standard doesn't make it inherently objectively better.

>So why are you even trying to debate such?
Because it irritates me when people call old stuff bad because of 4:3 rather than, for example, because it's 240p.
>>
>>122377363
>Something being the standard doesn't make it inherently objectively better.
Yes it does. Or else it wouldn't be the standard.

You also need to fire it at point blank range to work because otherwise you'd have the accuracy of a Stormtrooper when using it, with less reloading abilities to boot.

If you do that to a 4:3 image, you'll end up with a blown up mess, FYI.

And yet you'd complain when something is blown up for newer TVs.

Also, there are no older TVs left.

It's like wanting horses back forgetting all the shit they left on the road.

We're discussing format, not resolution, so I tried to depict them in a way where one wasn't clearly inferior to the other (I failed, by the way, since 12 is larger than 9).
If you prefer, we can discuss the merits of 4:3 vs 4.619:2.598.
That would give about the same amount of pixels on either side.

Resolution comes with the territory of the 4:3 aspect ratio since anime was filmed back then.

That was the technology available back then. Don't back up and go with HD cameras for 4:3 ratio just to suit your argument.

Or are you now discarding resolution from the charm argument because it defeats it?

With a smaller ratio, less of the movement is seen, so you're focused more at the center and you're missing out on the grandeur of the scene.

You can pan on 4:3, but 16:9 provides a more dynamic look because of that extra space and breathing room.

It's like you just spout these buzzwords and don't know what they mean.

Nothing has changed about anime production up until the finished linework, since the early 80s. NOTHING. NOT A FUCKING THING. It's still hand-drawn, still hand traced, hand tweened and hand cleaned. In the west they've switched largely to tablets, but in Nipland they still do pen and paper. PEN AND PAPER. Pic related.

So before you bitch about how "digital" anime is worse than "hand drawn," remember that ALL anime is hand drawn, and that "digital" is a meaningless buzzword. Shading has shifted from cel to digital, but all that means is that they're using a paint bucket tool rather than actual brushes.

The change in style isn't indicative of anything other than, well, a change in style. The production has barely changed at all.

Fucking neo-/a/.

Honestly, I feel that choreography and general animation quality has improved over the years. Otaking shading was nice, but too often the price was stiff movement and lack of onscreen action - it would be simulated with quick cuts instead.

there's nothing wrong with that Birdy example. modern Masami Obari (that fucking SRW OG show), Rebuild of Eva and the new Hunter x Hunter anime are much worse about it (so yeah, good job to the anons who posted HXH).

there are legit points to be made about traditional vs digital but the the typical criticisms are pure technophobia and "old school" pretentiousness and don't come to a place of knowledge.

it's not like it even requires any research or 'special knowledge' to grasp what goes wrong with shitty digital coloring most of the time; it's actually EXTREMELY simple and anyone can understand it: traditional coloring is going to look more natural most of the time because THE COLORS ACTUALLY EXIST IN THE REAL WORLD. picking colors thoughtfully from a color wheel is much more difficult.

FLCL had digital coloring but it looked good, because the colors were thoughtfully chosen to be natural.

Not necessarily, there's still the huge point where your original material isn't on film any more and is now in a digital resolution in terms of pixels.

This is why you can achieve higher levels of clarity/quality with remastered anime that have their masters on film rather than on some computer hard drive or disk.

But the original material is physical. And honestly, if you can notice every pixel of difference between 1080p and analogue, props to you. You're a literal god. Considering most of us watch digital versions of old, cel-animated shows, this point is moot.

>This is why you can achieve higher levels of clarity/quality with remastered anime that have their masters on film rather than on some computer hard drive or disk.
While true, this isn't necessarily impossible for digitally composed anime.

>>122379190
That's not a problem then with digitally colored anime, but all anime in general. You tell me fucking Bubblegum crisis had natural looking colors.

>>122379254
When your argument is "COLOR IS BAD IN DIGITAL ANIME" (whatever the fuck "digital" anime is) with no evidence or backing, yeah, that doesn't deserve a proper response. You didn't give me any substance to respond to.

>>122379282
Color layers on moving objects were always flat textures. That's how cels were animated, blocks of colors layered on one another. As for painted backgrounds, they still do that. Most backgrounds are still hand-painted, hand colored, etc.

>>122379410
No, hand animated is hand animated. What the fuck is cell-shading, it has one L.

Jesus, it's not that hard to understand. Nips very rarely use things like PS or other drawing applications for animation. Why? Because it's incredibly difficult to maintain direct lines of motion with that shit. So even now it's usually pencil on paper, in flipbook fashion.

Inkbrush animation is nothing new,
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSV7041mZCw
and I highly doubt the brush textures were completely simulated. Maybe enhanced in post-production, or during composition, but definitely not computer generated.

That doesn't even look like inkbrush holy shit it's charcoal.

It's very easy to see the difference in quality between remastered old shit on BDs and "1080p" BD rips of new shit.

>While true, this isn't necessarily impossible for digitally composed anime.

Yes but they don't seem to be hitting actual high pixel quantity for some reason, there's some signal noise site that measures the actual quality you're getting from an image, specifically for anime, can't recall the name but it's out there.

That's an encoding issue more than anything else. That's why 1080p Funi looks so much worse than 1080p Commie.

There's more to digital quality than resolution, and the remasters are the result of tedious tweaking and direct access to the source. Fansubbers don't usually have the time or resources. That's why things like THORA, where they do take the time to go over everything, tend to look the best.

>Yes but they don't seem to be hitting actual high pixel quantity for some reason, there's some signal noise site that measures the actual quality you're getting from an image, specifically for anime, can't recall the name but it's out there.
Again, that's something that arises in the transition from TV into encode, rather than from the digital production.

Not really.
Anons on /a/ watch lots of currently airing shows, so their sample of current anime is relatively random.
However they will only pick up old anime if they have at least some reputation here, after decades, and they will only have BD releases in case they were relatively successful.
So we have some very obvious filtering on one side.

But keep spouting buzzwords.

To be fair, there really haven't been any remasters of digitally composed anime yet. I mean, it's only been 10 years. In any case, I suspect that it's not as bad as you think, the original image files and colors are usually saved as vectors, anyways. So remastering to a higher resolution isn't difficult.

It's hard to compare Remastered old BDs to current BDs.

In any case, I don't think it's a terribly significant difference.

Not him but I have to disagree, digital colours are worse than paints, mainly because most artists think that maxing contrast and oversaturating is good and your eyes have to bleed every time you put vivid colours on screen like red/ blue and purple.

Everyone knows that one thing digital art can't do well is colours, even when talented artists make wise decisions, it still looks inferior to paints or film, though of course almost nobody uses film anymore now.

Then that's not the fault of the medium, just the artists. It's a shift in style, rather than a technical limitation. The two are different.

Good point, but again, that isn't tied to the new medium. If an animator wanted to make something fully in cel style, he can. Look at Redline. So blame the animators, not the technology. Yes it's a shame that frescoes have died out, but you can't blame wallpaper for that.

>>122380767
No, he's sort of right. In the past the easiest way to add detail or intensity to a scene was by adding more layers of shading. Contrary to popular belief, Otaking 20 layer shading was REALLY EASY to do, while on cels complex motions and camerawork and choreography were extremely hard to pull off well. With digital composition and coloring, choreography all of a sudden became much easier, and so the focus went to that, rather than the shading. That's where net-kei comes from.

>>122380833
>You just don't know how computer programs render colours, it's a well known fact even among newbie photographers, digital colors are inferiors to actual colours or film, at least for now.
Not quite, film is better at CAPTURING colors, that doesn't mean it has better "color" in general. That's why it's still popular for photography.

>It's the same reason why CRT is still better than the vast majority of LCD or plasma tvs, it has much better colour capacity, this is a technical fact.
Don't compare hardware to videos. Even if a screen can't display it properly, digitally 0R 0G 0B will ALWAYS be true black. And on a CRT it WILL look that way. Digital files have just as much, if not more, color capacity as analogue film. Sometimes screens can't display it properly, but that doesn't change the content.

Doesn't change the fact that CRT has better colours for now, I'm confident people will find a way for new displays to reach that kind of quality, but as things are now CRT is superior in that regard.

There's only so much color variation possible, from 0 to Max RGB. Digitally, all that can be stored, even more so than analogue since film is limited by chemistry. Digital is pure color information.

Displaying it is another issue, but technically the color capacity of a digital file is infinite.

There was like 7 of them, new productions, that started at the beginning of the year. With almost double that number if you take into account older productions still airing. A lot of shows in >>122380734 premiered in 1991.
And 2014 had more shows aimed for kids starting each season.

And of course, if you take re-runs of finished productions into consideration then the number increases significantly.

And even this currently airing season has about 10~ shows aimed at kids. 4 card game shows, and 4 idol shows. As well as shows like pokemon and what have you. And yes these are all aimed at kids. Neckbeards watching precure does not make it not a kids show.
Kids aren't neglected. Kids generates lots of money, and have thus never been neglected.

If anything, there are more shows for kids today than in the past. It's just that there are now even more shows not aimed at kids. But all in all, there is just a whole lot more of animation in general.

I think the biggest problem is the color and shading

>I can't enjoy watching most new shows because they have such bland and weak colors.
That's hardly an issue inherent to digital. It's an issue with the production values. Ufotable certainly has vivid colors (although I think their filters are a bit too much).

Are you talking about actual kids who are 11 years old or below or teenagers?

Actual kids. Like Hero Bank, Battle Spirits, and Kaitou Joker and whatnot. And Pretty Cure.
They are good.

They add grains in Zeta Gundam movies, but it still looks like digital paint.

The fucking colors. You can tell they reek of digital.

How can you smell the colours?

Fact: the muh grain faggots of today will be no different than the muh streaming artifacts faggots of twenty years from now.

It's the same shit.

The colors aren't muted pastels.

There's no problem with digital animation.
The problem is shitty animators trying to hide the lack of shading or decent coloring under ugly after effects like the sheen they slap all over everything.
>>
>>122383149
Lots of digital shows use muted pastels. That's actually a common complaint about digital anime.
>>
>>122379237
youre not alone
>>
>>122383185
Animators don't do any coloring, it's a job handed to another part of the studio.

How do we feel about Ghibli's use of CG?

It could be a lot better but the stylization helps it blend in more than most tv anime.
>>
>>122383213
Higher contrast, then, maybe? Or more bluish hues rather than beige? Fuck, I dunno. I ain't no artist.

Cels were painted, with actual paint that needed to be colored with naturally available pigments.

With digital, you can just drag your mouse to any part of the color matrix and make your NGNL or any rainbow bloomfest abomination with colors even more divorced from reality than the characters in it are.

>>122382951
It's not though.

Are we going to have this thread everyday now?

>>122383465
I don't think using colours that don't occur naturally is a bad thing, it's just how they are used.
For what it's worth, I think anime has been improving its use of colour in the past few years. At the very least, the blandness of the 00s seems to be disappearing.
>>
>>122383465
You can produce many colours with pigments that don't appear in nature.

Good place to put this.

He left weeks ago, I'm just bringing this up to point out the difference between cels and digital ink & paint.

Digital shitters are just underage children whos first anime was SnK and can't watch older anime because "muh clean animation" and thus should be ignored.

We all know in the end hand drawn with painted cels look superior in every single way.
Digital may be fine for junk food anime like harem and sol/moe shows but when it comes to high quality shows that matter, it's just disappointing.
