Unfortunately studies has shown that unless the tv/movie-audience
is a bunch of CG-nerds (like us)…noone really cares.
We had a Danish full-feature CG movie over here in Denmark
that was so badly animated and …“low-budget” designed that
you’d probably go into permanent coma if you saw it.
It was funny - entertaining …and the average “Joe” loved it.
Heck…even I loved it, I actually forgot about the “bad CG”
after 10 minutes…simply because the movie itself was hilarious.
My guess is that Disney does this because they don’t have to
do better…meaning they can produce MORE movies and spend
LESS MONEY on each production…because the average “Joe”
don’t care anyway.
For us that loves CG-graphics…it’s bad news, but if it’s any
comfort…software will get easier to use and create works with
and the quality & speed will increase…as it is today…it’s
still somewhat cumbersome (especially rigging on complex characters)
so it won’t be like this all the time…
Just make sure you (and all you others) have Quality in mind
when you work with Blender and other software…that will
of course contribute to the future generation of CG’ers (YOU!)
