3D Animation

15 DEC

 With the newly released Disney animated film The Princess and the Frog, the flames of 3D animation hatred have been reignited.  People are chanting in the streets, "Finally!  Disney is done with that filthy 3D animation, and is finally making REAL animated movies."  Okay, maybe no one is actually saying this, and I'm just paranoid.  But this is a good opportunity to talk about 3D animation, so whatever.

There has always been a fear of 3D animation since it's first conception.  There was a fear that 3D animation would take away the personal touch from animated films.  After all, they were made by soulless computers.  These morons thought that somehow there would be no need for animators anymore.  And the anti-3D hatred continues to this day, calling it a passing fad.  Well, to them I only need to say this: stop your whining for ten seconds, and just look at the films that have been made using 3D computer animation.  Many of these films are timeless masterpieces.  Remember how you used to watch those old Disney movies on tape back when you were a kid?  Well, Finding Nemo and The Incredibles and WALL-E will serve that same function for your kids.  3D animation will continue to be used because it is a versitile and powerful storytelling medium.

And besides, Disney animations hasn't made a decent film since The Lion King.  They better be damn happy they had Pixar to do all the work while they get the credit.

I take it you didn't like New Groove?

Cameron's Avatar isn't animation. They tried to make realistic pseudo-human models, so maybe capture works for that. It didn't in Spirits Within, but that was 8 years ago.

I still won't watch Avatar, because from what I've seen it's incredibly stupid ^^

I've seen a few 3D haters on the interweb. They always annoyed me >.> Why should it matter what type of animation they use? They just think the Disney 'classics' are the best ever and people will always love them. 

I couldn't agree with you more!

Never encountered 3D haters. The real enemy is motion capture, 'cause it takes the animation out of animation. That Appleseed movie was disgusting.

Don't forget The Emperor's New Groove!
