Re: Is normal Cel animation doomed?
Well, it really depends on financial conditions.. If someone can come up with a real winner,(that is one that makes hundreds of millions-like Shrek- and it is normal Cel animation, then it will continue....If the winners are all 3D and other stuff, normal Cel animation will go the way of the silent pictures....It isn't that you can't do it, and that there aren't animators who will do normal cell, it is who will finance it. Titan AE, combination lost close to 100 million. what a shame, and ATlantis, normal cell, isn't bringing in the bucks it was supposed to...best of luck to all old toon guy

It seems that alot of the animated stuff that's getting mainstream attention attention is stuff that uses fancy cg and have alot of fx all over the place (or Disney stuff.) So I'm begining to wonder whether conventinal animation will even be here a decade or 2 from now. I mean by that time CG animation will be so far above and beyond what we can imagine ya know. Oh well, thoughts?
