This same featurette can be found on the "Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit" DVD that was released yesterday.

To be honest, I was a little nervous when I heard that Aardman was going CG, but thankfully, they've kept their look, style and charm intact. The big eyes and buck teeth are still there. It still feels like Aardman.

Still, I wonder if they could chop out every other frame or so to maybe give it that stop-action feel. You don't think it's too smooth, do you?

An interesting concept, but it would still have limits. Using a technique like that, you'd see every character in a frame have a hesitation, as opposed to individual ones, which would make it look like the projector had a hiccup.

What you would have to do is introduce a random element of pause into individual characters as they are rendered, so that you would see variation going on throughout the whole film. And then you'd have to make sure that the characters never synchronize, or else you'd get other unnatural results (like having a row of characters do "the wave.")

It doesn't sound impossible technically, but it does sound like a new order of magnitude in complexity.

For my demo reel in college, I had a cg piece wherein I used scanned in, finger-printed up playdoh as the textures for the models. I also animated the character frame by frame instead of using any sort of tweening. A lot of people thought he was stop motion, and for all intents and purposes, I guess he could have been considered as such.

...now back to your regularly scheduled thread.
