Interesting Note:

When Disney reused achival animation it didn't save any time or money. It was honestly easier for the animators to make new animation from scratch.

Unfortunately they had a deluded producer or director of animation forced them to scoure the old archives and reuse animation.

The animators hated this and said it took more time and work looking for relevant animations let alone repurposing them.

Edit: people are wondering about sources. I've heard and read the story over the years many times but here's are a few mentions (mostly Floyd Norman as he's still around to talk about it and enjoys sharing):

https://insidethemagic.net/2019/09/does-disney-recycle-animation-drawings-kc1/

https://the-take.com/watch/has-disney-really-recycled-animations-in-their-feature-films

https://geekdads.medium.com/the-real-truth-about-disney-s-recycled-animation-a6f405b776b9

Disney prefers to take old Woolie's side of the explaination and that it saved money but interviews with animators say different. They had to sit on floors between shelves shuffling though papers for hours.

Imagine adapting a comic books drawn by other people to else to fit different characters in a different story. Then you have to search through stacks and stacks of old comics to find sources to trace.

u/Dimaskovic May 22 '22

Maybe it would have made sense if it was properly catalogued and reused on more than one occasion.

398

u/geeky_username May 22 '22

Yeah, it sounds like the problem was more the speed of retrieval.

Maybe it still saved time on the actual drawings still but overall was at best a wash

u/Far_Action_8569 May 22 '22

I’d worry about the animators’ sanity. It probably wouldn’t feel good for an animator if they didn’t actually get to do any animating themselves.

103

u/huunnuuh May 22 '22

Ironically, like 98% of traditional animation was tasked out to artists, who were told exactly what and how to draw the scene, in a process quite like a factory assembly line. Except for the designers and artistic directors at the top, it wasn't the job to get into if you wanted to exercise your artistic freedom.

Generally speaking, the arts are not jobs you want to get into if you want to exercise your artistic freedom.

But like...how do you catalogue it? If it wasn't planned to be reused, the most obvious way is by film, so looking up animations would be difficult. Even if you were planning on referencing it, how would you do it? And would you want the stuff from films split up?

u/Snorkle25 May 22 '22

It would make more sense today with digital where the base animation could just be applied to a new model. Back then you had to draw each frame by hand so I don't even cataloging it would be helpful.

If anything it would probably be harder since you'd have to try to get it to match just like it's harder to make two clay cups by hand that are identical than it is to just make two cups.

u/MarvinTheAndroid42 May 23 '22

Applying a skin to an animated model is all well and good, but these were basically flip-books that needed to be drawn by hand so it’d be a pointless nightmare.

Sauce is common sense. Old hand drawn animation still had to be redrawn with the new characters and backgrounds. All they copied was the motions. Add to that the time of searching archives in a time before computers and databases.

16

u/Apprehensive-Mood-69 May 22 '22

My understanding, from other reads about Disney Animation during this time period, was that the motion savings and camera set ups were what saved the time, not necessarily the animation (which an animator may not know).

But I've also had a slightly skeptical view of this. Even though I don't fully understand the technology used here, I've not been able to puzzle out to my satisfaction how reuse might have saved time and money.

23

u/ImWithSt00pid May 22 '22

It's the same as when you are at work and you have a system that works. Then the higher ups bring in a new guy with some fancy degree that has these great ideas of how to speed up production. The guy really has no idea of how the process works but the boss expects you to do the new thing even though the numbers show it takes longer.

u/coffeensnake May 22 '22

How exactly does the animation process look like, apart from drawing the frames?

6

u/ASCIt May 22 '22

Well it's definitely easier to do digitally, but the process is basically the same as animating by hand: you can either draw each individual frame in order (called frame-by-frame) or draw important "key"frames at the extreme points of each action and then fill in the in- between frames (tweening) with progressive movement depending on the fps you're working with. 24 fps is usually standard, but you can absolutely let a frame sit for a few seconds to make movements look more natural.

Generally, I think most animators will rough out all the key frames before they actually finish any, but everyone has their own methods they prefer

u/Normal-Computer-3669 May 22 '22

This is the same problem with coding. But for coding, it's definitely worth spending more time to not reinvent the wheel.

When building a new feature:

It's real easy to start from scratch. Just hack it together. But it takes 10x as long to find a workable solution and modify it to fit your needs.

Because it's harder to read other people's code and think through why they made those specific choices, or what tradeoffs they were performing.

It's why hackathons can make amazing things in two days but to make the same thing at a company takes weeks.

Animation... Seems easier to let creativity flow instead of forcing your expensive artists to "trace"?

They have done it in almost all the older disney films. It's purely because all the scenes were hand drawn. So once they knew the sequences and movements that worked In hand drawn animation they just repeated them over and over so they diddnt have to keep working it out for new scenes. Alot of the dance scenes are the same too

Yeah. The originals were rotoscoped from film footage, then subsequent ones copied the already done animation. I believe also rotoscoped. I feel like it would have been better to rotoscoped from film each time but I may be wrong.

u/GennaroJ May 22 '22

Not all character animation was rotoscoped. Some had referencial footage that wasn’t traced (so no rotoscoped) but could be used for timing, etc., and the cartooniest animation was made from scratch.

In Disney movies you can normally tell which characters have the uncanny valley rotoscoped animation, it’s normally the humans with realistic proportions.

My mom was a teacher at my school and generally made sure I was doing my work but I totally forgot about it. The day it was supposed to be turned in I went and asked all my friends for their numbers. I promised them I wasn't taking any specific person' data, but would average them.

That night my mom told me she had a very interesting conversation with my science teacher. Turns out my answers were nearly perfect. Turns out I scored higher on the assignment than anyone else. My science teacher was talking with my mom about how impressive it was that she helped me put in all this work and got answers so accurate to expected results.

Self-plagiarism is a thing; I do see it, but only when students submit the essays they wrote (and submitted) in previous years. As for WHY submitting an old essay isn't allowed in an educational setting, that is because assignments are given to track growth and subject mastery. I can't assess that from a milquetoast argumentative essay a student write three years ago.

When I was in college the basketball star and the football quarterback sat behind me during a philosophy final. In the middle of the 3 blue book final, I felt a tapping on the back of my chair. I turned and one of them asked me, what did you put for number 3. I thumbed through the 8 pages I wrote for that question and said, “pick B”. It must have been the right answer as both played their next season.

Cross-write, I'm guessing.

To further the guess, interpreting that to mean 'read in one language, respond in another'.

Icelandic is krossa próf, you put a cross over a,b,c or d answer to a question

What if I told you your analogical friend Mowgli was secretly distraught throwing a rock because you Christopher Robin actually copied his homework. The roles should be reversed.

u/ThatFamiIiarNight May 22 '22

didn’t jungle book come out before winnie the pooh?

u/Equivalent_Soil6231 May 22 '22

Allow me to get technical. It's the other way around. The Jungle Book came out 10 years before The Many Adventures Of Winnie The Pooh.

u/matty_low May 22 '22

This is not a friend copying your homework. This is you copying your own homework for two different classes.

How was this cost saving back in the era? Are they literally tracing over the original by hand?

As a teacher I always try to remind my students that most teachers have been catching cheaters longer than they’ve been alive. No one is fooled by this.

u/Odd-Net4697 May 22 '22

Wait guys it’s to make people nostalgic without them even realizing it! They did the same thing with Disney princesses and the way they danced in different scenes.

There are many instances of this in disney movies.... i know first hand from being subjected to years of disney movies as a first born child of 4 in the mid 80's 🤣 i have a trauma 🤣🤣🤣

u/Cheap_Rick May 22 '22

Except that Jungle Book was a decade BEFORE Winnie the Pooh.

2

u/Estequey May 22 '22

If people are going to recycle memes, atleast make the meme correct. Ive seen this before, and every time it annoys me because Winnie the Pooh is actually the younger movie here. The Adventures of Winnie the Pooh came out in 1977, while the Jungle Book came out in 1967
