Trigger warning for loud sounds towards the end of the vid.
This was entirely edited, and was supposed to be exported, in 48fps, not 50. Funny thing is, Premiere simply doesn't allow custom frame rates in its export window, despite supporting it as a sequence setting. I could have exported the Premiere file into After Effects and added the sequence to the render cue, but I couldn't because AE threw me an error every time I tried. That, combined with the legitimately unbelievable amount of bugs and errors and crashes left me feeling so exhausted and numb that I ultimately decided it was worth sacrificing one 25th of a second's worth of timing here and there. If you catch any editing errors, that'd be why. Oh well!!

  • Fantastic rant, I love it! And you're absolutely right. I love how you underline the intent of the artist. Those who would seek to replace artists with machine learning and AI clearly don't understand what art is for. Replace stuff that people don't want to do, or can't do. But people get joy (and their livelihood) from creating art, and they want to do it. It's one of the things that make us human. I'm no Luddite, and I love using new tools to create my animation. But when it starts to encroach upon the fulfillment that I get from creating, then no thanks! You might argue that this is just interpolation and chill out. But my response to that is just wait, this is just getting started.

    • Ngl idrc. I'd like to have my animations (if I did) seem better to others. As long as it's good to other people and as long as they enjoy it then thats all it matters lol. I can make it 15 fps and if they made it 60 its alr

  • Even when watching shows that were intended for 60 fps, I still prefer 30 fps far more. 60 fps isn't a new concept. It has been used for soap operas since they were first created. That's why it's called "the soap opera effect".

  • Just taking valid points and repeating them in a mocking tone doesn't make you right. This feels like someone saying cassettes have better sound quality than a flac file on your phone. I get that you prefer the look and it's there for you to watch it but that doesn't make it wrong for people like me to prefer a smoother image. The artists still put in their key frames, the ai simply does inbetweens. Is an inbetween animator insulting the artist cause he makes it look smoother? I don't think so. That changes nothing about the fact that it's still the artists key frames. And the parts that made sense to me like when you said repeated frames cause jenkiness, that's just cause the tech doesn't recognize that at this point. You may not be a religious man like you said in the video, and neither am I but that doesn't stop you from defending your irrational believes and letting them make you shun others opinions over something that is very much a subjective thing. Oh btw the way, those gross weird images that the ai puts in? Those are called smear frames and they are used by actual the professionals that the ai is apparently so disrespectful to. Showing off mistakes of a still developing program that was used by a private person for entertainment doesn't change that fact.

  • this is making me feel bad that i mostly couldn't tell the difference, before it was pointed out to me, or put in slow-mo. mind you, not even in games. i trust when someone says that 60fps is best for gaming, but i really can't tell the difference unless i play the sequences back to back a few times. ps. fuck that jumpscare at the end

  • I agree with everything in this video, 60fps animation is cursed. The AI part (11:18) is wrong though. AI is literally designed to train itself and yes, in the beginning, it needs help learning how to do better, after that it basically trains itself to be/look better. This isn't a defense for AI 60fps animation, it's just a correction.

  • I mean, tbh yes, I'm a gamer, BUT the FPS always depends on what the animation style is actually showing the viewer. Is it a game, with high graphics (let's say RTX), then yes the more FPS the better HOWEVER, is it a cartoony animation, let's say here mulan or el dorado it's actually better to keep it the way it is. Not only because the animators get payed to draw every single frame but because it also fits the style of what the viewer i looking at and (i think that's only me) it gives that nostalgic vibe to it. Or, in other words. Imagine low FPS on a high graphic game. That would be the same as a low FPS animation with high FPS, yes it looks shit. Now, if i may said something that triggers some animator, I never animated anything in my whole life, so these are my thoughts on animators/animations So long story short, it depends on the style with what the animation is going at cartoon/game Yes, i just nearly copied all that he said.

  • Fernanda Dias's animation for Save me (Bruno Martini, Avian Grays, TRIXL ft. Mayra) is a good example of having flow is worth more than having more frames. You can notice the missing frames between the character motions but since it has a good flow, your brain still gets the information needed to understand what is happening.

  • I'm a gamer. But I also appreciate watching and/or playing media in its intended state. But as a general user who just wants to game, I don't exactly always know the intended frame rate for a game. Unless it's Resident Evil 4 (PC) where I realized the game looks and runs better in its 30 FPS mode because the 60 FPS mode is oddly smooth but also has issues with timing. Timing issues most notable during QTEs. I believe I noticed a similar situation with Nioh 2 where the game seems to look and run better at 60 FPS and fewer issues running in 30 while being harder to play at 120. Anyway, I like your video. It helped me understand why some things seemed a bit off with certain games I played and why lower frame rates made the games better off. Though I've only found myself caring about frame rate more with competitive games like Apex since they're made with high frame rates in mind. Edit: You also explained the weird artifacts I've noticed in some of my games and I appreciate it.

  • This is actually one of the reasons I love some of the older 90s anime. Like yes colours and speed and things are amazing now and some anime are just *chef's kiss* but the stylised beauty of the 90s is also SO GOOD. The fight sequences often have way more impact. The play of light and colour in blockier shading can literally give you chills at times. It's just amazing and higher quality, more realistic stuff just doesn't have that effect.

  • i feel like what needs to happen for ai interpolation to actually look good is having it trained on animation, and specifically the style of animation it is expected to be used upon. I think fan made "enhancements" are a matter of personal taste, and right now the a.i. used for them is in very early stages of its devolopment for use with animation.

  • Its like if a fight scene has a 10 frame punch it should be a 1-2-4-5-10 animated thing instead of 12345678910 because it has little to no weight to it. I don't know the actual frame counts for it just saying that as an example

    Breakerone92Breakerone9216 soat oldin
  • I don't think it's gamers but rather people delving into AI trying to push the technical feat of pushing animation. personally as a person who loves arts and gaming i only care for High FPS in games that are all about user experience that has involves high action. I usually like to think high frame anything is reserved for action and sports. a machine will ultimately never (or would want to) be put in-between the final touches on what the artist is trying to achieve with their work. I understand it's a rant, but I don't think it's specifically "gamers". art will never replace the innovation or birthing of new ideas since they are only limited to what they are programmed to do, like you said "gets better over time" is far from what AI really is.
