a few years late, mister X FINALLY debates the pros & cons of CGI vs practical FX
Good video Mister X. I look forward to watching your videos in the subsequent future.
Great comparison between cgi and practical effects Mr. X, showing that both effects have their pros and cons. By the way it would have been funny to have a cgi Mr. X in parts of the video.
i DID consider it…but the cgi X i made was so 2-d it didn’t work
I didn’t think this was a debate people still had. I thought we’d all moved on.
it still matters the same way folks got mad when they created GO-MOTION…
I do see what your getting at.
It seems like everyone with a copy of zbrush thinks they can be an effects master.
Personally I like both; even corny CGI!
I don’t know… It just puts a smile on my face.
Especially when it’s something soooo bad that it makes MY WORST look good.
Damn you Mr.X! I’d finally purged all memory of Devastators’ balls from my memory until this vid.
Though digital hair and cloth look nice… they pale in comparison to actual hair and cloth.
As for digital people… They only look good in a CGI movie (Dreamworks/Pixar).
I still remember the weekends I would spend in with a camera and some pipecleaner people, working 18-20 hours a day for a total of 12 seconds of footage.
Now I spend weeks to get a few minutes of CGI footage!
i like digital landscapes, vehicles and technology myself…the stuff it’s GOOD at (for now)
Reminds me of what the set designer of Max Headroom said, when he took months to design and build the fictional city of the future; which his daughter recreated in an afternoon on her laptop.
I have two ideas for future show based on this very argument…
-Claymation (stop/go motion) vs CGI.
-Suitmation (guy in a creature suit) vs Motion Capture.
