Why is modern animation so awful?

>>152382735
Anime isn't profitable.
>>
>>152382735
It's still better than old animation on average.
>>
I gotta say that the 'nature' of the animation has changed. It's difficult to spot any 'steady' animation, stuff like even, controlled motion or movement with consistent rate. Everything is very snappy.
>>
>>152382735
Watch proper anime like Handshakers instead of low budget garbage that airs this season otherwise.

HS has more good animation that this season combined.

because good artists don't wan't to become animators any more. the stigma is already pretty widespread. artists who would have the skill don't really even consider this as an option anymore.

why would you want to go into a field where you know that you'll work for pennies AND have close to no creative control?

TLDR they're losing generations worth of talent because of slave wages

the other explanation is that they're making too much anime, period. and that the talent is spread too thin across the field.

It isn't. Modern TV anime has better animation than shit from 20 years ago for the most part.

The point was that 80s still did a much better job with non-existant budget. Kill yourselves underage scum.
>>

Super's also had its share of good animation while Z has had its share of bad shots too.

Not even surprised you're comparing an episode with animation mistakes to a damn movie with a higher budget by default in the first place

Modern movies look worse than 00s TV animation, see GitS The New Movie compared to SAC for example.
>>
there are like a billion new shows a season and animators get paid pennies on the horsecock, no way for every show to get talented animators and no way to convince talented artists to become talented animators

Not just in terms of animation quality, but also in terms of directing.
>>
>>152389109
That's pretty much cherry picking, though.
>>
>>152389151
No it isn't, Psycho Pass The Movie then, falls into same category.
Or the Akito the Exiled movies.
Or the Persona 3 movies.

Modern movies genuinely look worse than what better animated TV shows of 00s you have.
>>
>>152389109

why are you comparing live action to animation
>>
>>152389109
Much of SAC didn't look that good either, and the CG backgrounds during the driving scenes didn't age well. The are a couple of really well done episodes, especially in 2nd Gig that hold up well today though.

GitS the New Movie aka Arise OVA 6 has a metric fuckton of CGI as well, a very blatant and plastic CGI.
>>
>>152389178
Those movies aren't amazingly well-animated but they sure as hell are more polished than the average 00s anime. Besides, not even all anime movies are created equal. Those you mentioned are glorified OVAs and aren't the high-budget production like Ghibli and Hosoda movies which still look great.
>>
>>152389225
Sure, but they're far better than SAC's nonetheless.
>>
>>152389279
>but they're far better than SAC's nonetheless
Please be bait.

SAC doesn't use CGI anywhere near as much as Arise does and SAC's non-CGI parts look much better than Arise's non-CGI parts.
>>
>>152388750
Motion is part of animation.
>>
>>152389305
The CGI usage is about the same for both shows, with the majority of mechanical animation and moving backgrounds being CGI. While not great, the CGI in Arise benefits from better shaders and modeling compared to SAC's due to advancements in technology.

The few scenes in SAC by veteran animators like Toshiyuki Inoue and Tetsuya Nishio are great and definitely better than anything Arise has to offer, I can agree with that. It's disappointing that Arise didn't feature some great animators like the older installments did. However, it's worth keeping in mind that SAC had its fair share of poor outsourced episodes so it's not like the series was some animation extravaganza, even for its time.
>>
>>152389187
Early 00s anime honestly look really bad.
>>
>>152389476
Some early attempts like Blood: The Last Vampire and FLCL still look really good, and even that one digitally-colored Bebop episode still holds up well today.
>>
>>152389529
>and even that one digitally-colored Bebop episode still holds up well today.
Bebop was entirely on cels, sure you don't mean the 2001 movie?
>>
>>152382735
Animators more than ever are mere cogs in the production machine, encouraged to work quickly and efficiently as opposed to exercising themselves creatively. There aren't many great animators these days, and those that exist are fought over because of the industry's freelance system.
>>
>>152389553
I'm pretty sure the movie still used cels. The Pierrot Le Fou episode utilized digital composite, and I suspect some other random shots in the series did too.
>>
TV anime has actually become a lot more even in quality and that level is on average been on the rise.
Even compared to the late 00s there were only a handful of notable examples of TV animation, and within those examples it was usually only a small portion of scenes and episodes.
The quality of anime movies has been stagnant or degrading however. 2000s and even 90s movies are still styling all over 99% of movies made today both technically and stylistically.
>>
Old or new isn't the issue. Depends on the person doing the cut and how much passion they have for their work.
>>
>>152392490
while the animation in modern movies might be degrading in films but small details like sound design are getting a lot better. the GuP movie has some of the best audio mixing and sound design out of any animated film I've ever seen
>>
>>152392889
Was it better than jin-roh?
>>
Animation fans are like the least relevant fans in the entire world. Less important than yurifags, less important than scatfags, less important than lolifags, less important than little kids who don't have the money to buy DVDs and rely on their parents to buy some manga for them instead.
That's how sad and irrelevant animation fans are.
They keep complaining about shit, and yet would still never buy anything at all.
>>
>>152392490
Anime film has been solid since 2013. Like, the one thing doing well in modern commercial anime right now.
>>
>>152392954
I haven't seen jin-roh in a couple years so I couldn't tell you but if the thread's still up in a couple of hours after I watch it I'll get back to you

Animation has gotten cheaper is all, but it's more or less the same shit quality wise.
But what I want to know is why all "sakuga heavy" shows are all actionshit? Why can't we have more heavy character animation shows like Nichijou, K-On, Tokyo Godfathers or Hyouka?

Just because my shit smells better than your shit doesn't change the fact it's still shit.
>>
>>152395537
Because some animators believe that the best way to become respected and noteworthy is to try to emulate live-action directing, instead of trying to make something different.
