Animation Production in 3D – Part 2

In my previous article, I spoke about the charm of 2D animation and gave an overview on how efforts using 3D technology have struggled to replicate it. In this post, I’m going to talk about current technology and the direction of technology that will allow for production of better animation, especially anime style.

Animation Production in 3D – Part 1

Despite everything I said in my previous post, I am now going to write on a topic that would be of interest to people in Japan, and even more ironic, I’m going to type in on the computer because it’s one of those topics I can ramble on without being too picky about my words. See how that works? Alrighty, let’s get started.

The topic of today: The current and future technology that will be powering the production of animation as well as it’s effects on the overall quality of the said product. Since I am a technical kind of guy and this is my line of work, I’ll be giving you some fascinating insider details. (Hint, hint, that means a long blog post.)

The first is a rambunctious character who inadvertently leads her friends into a cyber trap, and the fun goes on from there.

The Last Exiles – or – Ignite the Gunpowder with Antifreeze Please

http://www.magnificent-world.com/animegallery/137-last-exile/images/7054.htmlThis blog is not intended for anime reviews and I have no intention of turning it into one (for one thing, I don’t watch enough anime). But, having watched Last Exile this past summer and having just finished Last Exile – Fam the Silver Wing (which I frequently refer to as “Last Exile 2”), I’d like now to give my commentary and provide critique and comparison of the Last Exile stories. But first, the summaries, since that’s what people are most interested in:
