First a computer animator suggests that non-computer animators "switch" to computers (i. e. give up the supposedly outdated hand-drawn method). Then a non-computer animator responds by getting insulting about computer animators.
Different strokes for different folks. Neither method is *better* than the other. But any animator who presently uses one method might profit from trying the other.
What is the use of arguing about the fact that there are two ways to create animation, and each is more suited to certain people?
