What I'm talking about are timing terms, specifically the number of drawings it takes to animate a scene. ONES is feature animation standard, meaning we shoot MORE drawings inbetween drawings to make the animation smoother. Rarely, if, ever is any television animation shot on ones. Insted it usually shoots on twos, or if it's REALLY cheap, on fours or eights which the higher the number goes the choppier the animation appears. Look at THE THIEF AND THE COBBLER, it's shot mostly on ones( except for the crappy stuff added after Richard Williams was dismissed from his position as director. (for example, take the film standard of 24 frames per second for film at 12 drawings, each of them shot 2 times, thus TWOS. ( Good feature animation will mix ones and twos together usually.But i was watching the TITAN A.E. preview and noticing in some scenes how the animation was especially slow, same with QUEST FOR CAMELOT if you look hard enough. ( It's especially noticable on a big screen...
