snothouse Computer animators NOW are lucky to get this much expression from their characters.
fluffy Lassetter wrote a formative computer animation paper based around how in the production of this movie they went back and relearned the lessons from traditional cel animation but applied them to 3D. It's a lesson that most studios still haven't learned, unfortunately.
Good 3D animation takes just as much effort as good 2D animation. It's just capable of doing a lot more with that effort.
Binro the Heretic I remember seeing this back in the 1980s on a TV special about computer graphics.
Most of the other bits of digital animation featured geometric shapes. This was the only one that looked "alive."
Xenocide The backgrounds are lovely. It's shocking to think this was made almost a quarter-century ago.
