Animals, Ass, and Birthday: SNEp DUMBO OFFICIAL TRAILER takineko: libertarirynn: futched: libertarirynn: dragonkyng: libertarirynn: friendly-neighborhood-patriarch: the-mighty-birdy: animationtidbits: Dumbo - Official Trailer Yo quick question why HELLO DARKNESS MY OLD FRIEND There are just so many problems here In the original movie the animals talk and baby Jumbo is called “Dumbo“ by the mean mom elephants. Why in the world do these kids who are supposed to be his friends call him Dumbo? Who thought it was a good idea to make a talking animal movie human centered? That stupid ass slowed down indie remix of “baby mine” is as hilarious as it is awful. Somebody tell Hollywood that you don’t need a slowed down indie remix in every movie trailer. Horrifying CGI is horrifying Why do we keep letting Tim Burton ruin Disney Classics? 1. Becuase its been a weird thing that Dumbo’s name has only ever been an insult and he never had a real name. 2. Not a rehash of the original? Isnt that a good thing? 3. No comment on that. 4. I’ve seen worse 5. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ He absolutely did have a real name did you not read right there where I said it was Jumbo? Literally the whole point of a remake is to be a remake of the original? Change it too much and it’s a reboot. 1. Call me crazy but I swear Jumbo was his mom’s name, and one of the elephants was like “oh look, he’s like a little Jumbo!” And that one bitch was like “with those ears? Nah, he’s Dumbo.” 2. The point is to make money, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this was more of a tax/copyright/contract thing. His name was definitely Jumbo Jr. because the stork character sings “happy birthday Jumbo Jr.“ at the very beginning of the movie do not fight me on this. Their family last name was JumboHis mom was called Mrs. Jumbo right? In the clip above she very specifically says that his name is Jumbo jr. I’m going to assume that as circus elephants, they don’t have surnames.

Bodies , Brains, and Click: interstellardragon: curlicuecal: hopeology: andreajmars: hopeology: thebuttkingpost: wheel-skellington: crocutalupus: x why this dog look like an nvidia tech demo High spec animal Oh, I KNOW WHY! Rare video game tech knowledge to the rescue! Animation of fur is really really hard, it’s effectively trying to animate, in real time, a few billion little strings. Noone can do that. Most consumer gaming computers would just burst into flame so that isn’t something people will do when modeling fur or hair. Instead, what animators and 3D modelers do in order to get around this is they form the fur into many layers of sheets or interlocking flexible bodies. Notice this animal has stiff fur, matted maybe from sweat or water. So when we watch the fur move our eyes and brains notice something we don’t notice on purpose. The fur isn’t moving individually, it’s moving in sheets and flexible bodies. There’s some slight movement and flexing, but it’s not “fur” like our brains want it to be, it’s “fur” in the way that fur is commonly animated! layers and flexible sheets! Also, light angles like this are common in animation to show the light being calculated across the body when it moves, so it looks familiar in the angle of the light too! BLESS YOU I don’t think I’ve ever gotten such an excited happy reply to an info dump hehehe oh cool i found someone explaining the thing Lmao fun explanation but if anyone bothered to click the source, op already explained that it’s a real hyena clip with the frame rate slowed down. That… Doesn’t negate the explanation? At all? They weren’t saying it wasn’t a real photo, they were saying that the way the fur is matted contributes to the animated appearance.
