that one scene in golden time when tada banri is listening to lisa or whatever on the balcony at night time and for some reason there's a lot of frames for when lisa turns around and it looks really out of place
It's just something someone came up with to make fun of "forced drama" but then idiots started taking it seriously. One would think people actually consider the meanings of words before they start using them, but it seems that's too much to ask.
Forced animation is animation I don't like.
>forced animation thread
>people are asking what it means instead of posting OPM
are you all this goddamn dense?
Are you seriously this fucking retarded?
He was clearly joking
It's some stupid term that people are trying to use.
At worst it is just some buzzword that people use for anything they dont like, or as bait to troll others
At best it means animation that doesnt feel right/surreal/glaring/out of place. If a show has a very flat 2-3 shadow style and then all of a sudden it has one character out of a scene having lots of movement within frames and more complicated shadow work, even more colors of shadows, that character becomes glaring in the scene because it is so different from everything else around it.
Having more focus on one piece of animation compared to other pieces has to happen though, especially in an anime that has action scenes. Think of Eva, it literally has scenes that dont move for about a minute straight because they wanted to save money. That is glaring, but they were able to make it work some of the time.
For the love of god, people, don't even try to take that term seriously. It's a bait, troll's lifeline and save-me term when people are running out of arguments. It has no meaning, only "forced drama" ever had any related phenomena behind it and even that was just catch-all term if people didn't want to repost the same thing again and again when sperging about melodrama in anime.
I've never used it myself but it has always been used to describe scenes which look awkward due to too much movement. Joshiraku actually made fun of it.
Of course, every sort of idiot is going to misuse it, fail to recognize actual good animation, say an entire series has forced animation because of one scene, and just generally shitpost. It can't be helped.
It wasn't a joke about forced animation, it was a joke about joshiraku being an anime that doesn't have much to animate, but even then, the animator work their hardest to do it.
Isn't that when it happens the most anyway?
This is one of the most awesomely retarded things I've read on /a/ in a while.
It's literally just tracing over the frames of actual human movement. The webm your replying to is an awful representation of it because it can actually be good, but it looks like they used male movement for it so it just doesn't look right.
>One punch man should have had awful animation!
>Nothing can have good animation!!! Otherwise it's just forced!
Gee anon, it's almost as if animators actually want to put effort into the scenes they're assigned to because maybe they enjoy their hobby? They're obviously not doing it for the money
>What is being forced in such situation exactly?
The fluid detailed animation. Making things move much more than they should just looks awkward and uncanny.
>what standards apply to whether a scene merits elaborate animation or not?
Action scenes generally merit it, generic talking SoL scenes from moeshit do not. Animation for the sake of animation is just a waste of budget, because when you get right down to it, animation is just a tool used to portray a story. A poorly animated anime with a good story is far better than a sakuga anime with a shitty story.
It's not forced animation, just lots of Naruto-tier fight scenes with high frame rate of mostly shitty inconsistent frames
The movement looks unnatural even without the motion blur. Even with how much she's moving, it's stiff and the blur is a cheap attempt at making it look dynamic and give weight to her movements.
Seriously, what the fuck is with that movement? Is the whole movie like this?
You can't be this fucking retarded. You truly could not be in sound mind and say that about Nichijou.
There are so many valid criticisms you could have used but "it's just memes" is the absolute worst you could have done.
How many of the people who comment on animation here have even studied animation?
The thing that frustrates me the most is how anons confuse meme colors with forced colorization.
Do you guys know of any good resources that I can use to explain the difference to the idiots on this board?
Damn, it only took two real experts to determine that people shitposting in a bait thread are wrong, guess all those years it the art school aren't wasted after all.
I always thought it was just unnatural looking animation that doesn't really serve a purpose other then someone felt like animating a guy bobbing up and down strangely just because.
With exaggerated faces you can say the point is to look funny
Or if the character has particular personality traits it may make sense for his body to be fidgeting around weirdly.
It's a case by case basis.
