Yeah, Wall-E was definitely a lot more detailed, it's still just staggering though how much more expensive than something in the same genre using similar technology is.
You're not jsut talking about the cost of the software or technology but the people behind it as well, most CGI jobs are done by the higest bidder since they know how little time there is to get a movie ready for the theaters.
Whereas they seemed to take their sweet time on TMNT. The script is copyrighted 2005. The movie came out in 2007.
Animated movies and VFX in live action movies are two entirely different things. The former takes much longer to produce (because it's, you know, a whole movie not just some shots) and the latter tends to be done by several different studios in a much shorter time frame. There seems to be some confusion in this thread in who's talking about what...
