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

    Practically the only reason we like higher FR is that it give us more time and data to react to quicker

    Kind of annoying to follow you through while making your point, even though you convinced me. 14:08 And with that one (man you're just nasty), you really won the dislike!

  • Kaiser2005

    Some people get sick from low fps's, apparently the highest fps that someone could need to not feel sick is 120fps, so higher fps's definitely have there place.

    I think the Genie scene looks decent because of the swooshy almost ghostly constantly smeared hands, but I 100% agree with the rest of the video.

  • VirtualKota

    I think the hype about higher FPS comes from graphics card sellers :) and I think people believing it makes the video smoother (you know, the frames THEIR BRAIN CANNOT EVEN COMPREHEND OR OBSERVE) just overhype the damn thing. I can barely notice the difference.

  • tiPtarB

    Nice vid. New perspective. I don't think I quite agree. I think there is a lot of potential in AI enhancing old animations. I just think they need to be smarter about it and try to preserve the spirit of animation and intent of animator. And it's harder. Waaaaaaay harder than just interpolating. But definitelly doable. I

    Ok I get that your point is correct and I completely agree but the "Is it just me or 60fps looks worse?" comments is just so overused, like people think they're quirky when the majority would agree to them

  • tko03

    I find it bizarre you completely failed to mention video editors & VFX artists using motion interpolation to slow / speed up animation as a cool effect, and showing examples of it being done well. Now I completely agree that throwing an animation into an AI interpolation software where it literally does it for you like DAIN with no care destroys the animation. But the problem with this video is that it failed to mention Interpolating animation is a pretty common way for slowing down or speeding up animation as an effect. Usually this is done in After Effects with a plugin called Twixtor and has to be manually edited and tweaked by a person, which more often than not is extremely difficult to do correctly as you have to get rid of the artifacts and blurriness that comes with interpolating. So as a result of the misinformation about this, the census is that any animation that has interpolation basically is trash. So thank you. Thank you for absolutely destroying and discrediting the work video editors and VFX artists do because you didn't like some talentless schmucks throwing animation into a program.

  • Matthew Brown

    I think the magic of your frames per minute is that it leaves the person watching to fill in the blanks. The blanks that your brain fills in are more or less perfect. They are influenced by the intentions of the scene and everything. Animator takes advantage of the way we view animation to create an effect and that entire effect gets destroyed by the AI.

  • ZipIce

    Gamer here: Esports = Frames; no one cares about frames if it's a single player game. Frame by frame auto interpolation has been the snake oil in a lot of T.V. sales since the late 2000's. The fact that someone thought this was actually good and put it in an A.I. is r*******. By default most large end T.V.s had interpolation on so a lot of numbskulls can't tell difference because they never actually turn off this setting to see that difference.

  • MajaMystic256

    60 fps can be better than 24 if you do it right but the problem is the AI which is being used to add more frames instead of animating it normally (which while it does take a long time can create great effect) AI doesn't properly preserve the weight and physics of animation properly and like in the video it is adding smeary/glitchy in between frames which make it blurry thats not higher fps fault its the AIs fault and the in betweens it generates Also Animation isn't always strictly at specific FPS all the time, its dynamic, some scenes require more or less fps than others for different effect

I don't know you probably did or not. machine learning is a thing that how ai learn don't know how but yeah of course I don't know anything but but I do need to agree that this thing was made for live-action I don't think it should be use on animation

    Interpolation is kinda like how it is in math, it should be used between two data points but you have to fix the potential issues with that data being a point that never existed, and if you don’t it’ll look off. Connection?

  • ChronoFlation

    I love smooth animation and yeah, I'm a gamer, but I also hate the ghosting effect of interpolation. Like if I won the lottery, I would pay everything I won to have some shows drawn on ones or drawn to be 60fps, cause even if 90% of the frames are drawn on 2s or 3s, that 10% drawn on 1s at 60fps would make my eyes melt. It would have to be a series that it really worked for, and most shows I'd be happy with sticking to 1s at 24fps, and then move to 2s or 3s for effect when there's an impact or something of that nature. Haikyuu is a great example of this, being a sports anime with lots of moments of quick and fluid animation leading to some of the best impact frames. Granted, I don't know that much about animation, I just know what I like to see. Interpolation as a tool is cool, but as a technique it's trash

    I doubt it's gamers. I am one, and I care about the quality of frames over raw FPS. I feel the problem is people who watch content on their "Smart TV" with interpolation on because they think it's better.... I get it to some degree, as panning shots and action sequences can be an eye strain when motion is too high, but interpolation isn't the solution
