So many posts and not even one relating to the topic. What a sod loser.


Thought you weren't going to continue by the way learn how to spell sore loser next time.


ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

'sod loser' is an english (referring to england) expression using the word 'sod' as in 'sod off'.

Here, learn something more for today:

American 3D just disappoint me so so much.

I think that in a few more years, 3D will look extremely more realistic to where even my eyes are going to have a hard time distinguishing it the first time I see it.


hmmm...well western cg movies are very different from japanese style...but i did enjoy the transformers movie as it was, aside from the crazy camera shots that made me dizzy.

does your disappointment to american 3d apply to all movies by americans or just the transformers movie?


Yea, most of the 3D that's incorporated with live action.

They do use motion capture (referring to using motion nodes or something like those attached to the bodies of real people and then relating those to points on the CG subject) but there are limits on the part of the computer graphics.

When I was playing with Poser, they had this thing called "physics lock", or something like that, I'm not so sure. But they inhibit the some things that the human body can do because the program will create distortions to the body when you move some part of the body in a particular way. And so the body's movement becomes limited in this way.

Also, if you study artistic anatomy, even very small things like the twitching of your fingers changes the physique of your whole arm because of the tendons,ligaments and muscles intertwined. But in CG, they don't recreate the whole body with its thousands of tendons, ligaments and muscles of course but they just take certain parts as whole, like perhaps the deltoid muscle is one chunk and doesn't change in shape.

Also there seem to be that huge problem with weightlessness, like the objects don't have weight in simulations. I don't know why.

(I miss Poser TT)


ahh...yes that is true, weight is also another problem in 3d...well i guess there's a lot of problems in 3d since i've already mentioned a couple. but my question is, wouldn't it have the same outcome if it were made in 2d? and if it were in CG + live action, it couldn't be told the way it should...you know, with all the flying and high jumps and giant swords.


Yea. but most commonly though they dont mix live action with 2d unless it has some kind of comical parody in it, so in that case I guess yea, there's no choice but to use 3d as in the recent Star Wars episode. But still like the other guy said, i believe it's just not at it's best yet.

Its true 3D animation has many limitations I have a little experience in 3D animation and have goten very frustrated very quickly. However it's relatively new technology and is bound to run into many problems just as traditional film did. Here;s the thing that's awesome through various rendering effects you can create many different looks with the same set of items. For example though powerful renderers and good animation skills you can create life like photorealistic movies or with the same movie you could apply a different rendering and get an anime look. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if the more recent anime are in fact 3D in origin and just rendered to remain faithful to the style. 3D animation would allow much more stunning visuals wile keeping a hand drawn look.

EDIT: The final fantasy movies are quite good however they are by no means the best possible it's simply that there is not enough interest for a serious fully 3D movie and quite possibly not the time either. By the way if your talking about live action/3D merging the movie 300 was filmed in a warehouse in Montreal and all the scenery was put in using 3D digital animation.

I miss good ol' 2D animated movies. It was a lot more fun to watch, in my opinion. I like 3D, too, don't get me wrong, it's just that 2D cartoons and movies and whatnot were really fun for me when I was a kid and I like the anime style drawn in 2D rather than rendered in 3D. I mean, if they're gonna go 3D, I prefer the slightly cartoonish but still more realistic look.
