>>81232217>the actual animating picks up the slack for that
it really doesn't, animation is just a small part of a much bigger machine
Its a huge process that requires many more people per frame to do the modelling, rigging, texturing, character effects (cloth and hair and such) for just character animation.
Look into how 3DCG is made before you just throw around assumptions. >>81232156
sadly this, people dont shell out the money for 2D animators so the schools get smaller and that means there's less skilled animators out in the world
I think we'll see a reversal if 3D movies ever stop printing money>>81232353
