Re: First Tron:Uprising Trailer

I'm definitely looking forward to seeing this and I'm especially happy that Bruce Boxleitner is involved. Hopefully it'll make up for the limited role he had in Tron: Legacy.

Well we do know that things move more slowly in the Grid than they do in real time.
As Willy Wonka would say, "scratch that, reverse it".

Things move faster in the grid, allowing days to go by while only seconds go by in the real world.

Tangled was definitely Computer Generated 3D animation, not hand drawn.
Oh yes. Duh! How could I forget that? Still, the point stands despite my inexplicable mental lapse. The difference between "2D" (hand-drawn) and "3D" (computer-modelled) animation is a separate thing from the difference between "2D" (flat) and "3D" (stereoscopic) projection. Either type of animation can be shown in either display format.


Besides, I don't think thats what Gaith mean't. As far as i'm aware, this is going to be a non-stereoscopic 2D presentation.
Well, it's a television series, so how could it be anything else?

ESPN has been broadcasting 3D sports since June 2010. More 3D channels are on the way: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3D_television#Broadcasts

As far as the apparently 2d faces go, could it just be that they went with cell-shading the cg models?

I considered that, but it didn't look that way to me. They really don't look very much alike. Indeed, when the characters moved, their body motions looked like 2D animation to me, even if digital coloring was used to give the proper glow and such. I think it's going to be the sort of hybrid animation that's common today, where the characters are 2D and the vehicles and often the backgrounds are 3D (as in Futurama, for example).

Re: First Tron:Uprising Trailer

I took this from the wiki article for "Tron: Uprising" so take this from a grain of salt.

The animation style of Tron: Upising is 2D animation. The animation is some what similar to Speed Racer: The Next Generation's animation style. But, the animation could change in production.

Looks cool. Although I don't get Disney XD, so I guess I'll have to wait for it to come out on DVD.
