      Hey corridor so recently I remembered a show I used to watch when I was little called roll play and I guess it was a show where they tried to get kids moving and the way the show is done is that they’ll have a black background with 3d animated animals however recently when I went through and watched some of their music videos the animation seems a bit rough and early 2000’s style I was wondering if you would consider checking it out

    hi guys!! I'm one of the directors of the Small Soldiers trailer, with my brother Xabier Urrutia. Just wanted to say that we are super happy that you watched it, even more that you reacted to it!! By the way, this is LUMEN, not Path Tracing, which is the Real Time renderer in Unreal. We were surprised by how powerfull it is! Gotta say though, there is a lot of post work done on it too, and as you said, all animations are done outside Unreal, in 3dsmax. I'd definetly love to talk about it with you guys whenever you want, big fan!

    The very first use of particle systems in a feature film was the Genesis effect in Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan. I’d say that’s a pretty impressive VFX shot, in historical context!

      Yeeeeesssss! I'm a big Tron fan and it's very interesting to compare the computer visuals from both movies. It's really hard to believe they were the same year (1982), as the Genesis Project scene looks so far ahead of anything else at the time. I'm just glad they were used in the best Star Trek movie 😀

    Fun Fact: the comment that Niko makes at 11:25 of "they're highly pressurised spiders" is actually closer to reality than you'd think! Most arachnids use Hydraulic compression as the chief source of locomotion in their legs, with Hemolymph (an invertebrate analogue for blood) acting as the hydraulic fluid. So, in a way, Eight-Legged Freaks actually got that scene right - if a spider was supersized and one of its legs got cut off, it'd likely eject a lot of pressurised Hemolymph. The more you know.

    I'm looking forward to Dune Part 2, but I'm also prepared that they likely took more liberties with the story. Most of the action or battles take place off screen, and so much of the dialogue is a mental game of chess these characters are playing. When a scene starts getting really good, the author pumps the brake and transitions to a completely new scene. As you read the book it becomes increasingly more clear why Dune has been so difficult to adapt.

    Would like to see the crew react to more Japanese special effects, a medium known as Tokusatsu which includes things from Godzilla to Ultraman tv series. Maybe having one of the modern directors like Kiyota Taguchi to come onto the show to describe the effects may help! I'm sure Taguchi will like to join your couch and explain what Tokusatsu means!

    With the 2015 Fantastic Four they actually used the same "light suit" idea for Human Torch as was used for Dr. Manhattan in Watchmen in a lot of scenes. And I also wanna point out that they replaced the head VFX artist in the middle of post and swapped out some assests...for worse.
    It'd be cool if you guys could react to the difference between the trailer footage and the final film!

  • Erik DeFries
    Erik DeFries Hace un mes

    I think one of the things that really sells the "Small Soldiers" animation is the fact that the movements of the action figures have a stutter, or jitter/wobble that is very reminiscent of stop-motion, like we would get from most other forms of live animation for a similar size (claymation, armature animation, etc.) and that subconsciously convinces us both of the realism in the image, and the scale of the figures, because we've seen it many times before.

    An awesome subtle vfx shot is in the latest season of Righteous Gemstones during a sort of music video part where Billy sings There'll Come a Payday. He's wearing super reflective sun glasses in the scene, but you never see a camera or any crew and his eyes are visible behind the glasses under the reflections. Subtle but cool

    Would be AWESOME for you guys to do a deep dive into the opening title sequences of the Bond films, from right back to Dr No through the decades to the innovations in the 90s/00s/10s/20s CGI openings... so many old-school techniques used and just a really great example of raw creativity to set the tone of each film. Even the MUCH hated Die Another Day has some of the best opening title elements with the fire and ice 3D characters which, for the time, were mind-blowing! :)

    9:52 - I used take photos of jumping spiders (Salticidae) and observe their behavior and movements and I can tell the animotors didn't do a good job here. IRL, the jumps are INCREDIBLY fast (to a human eye it looks like they teleport) and the spiders move in a "jumpy" way which is kind creepy and they can also move their carapace and abdomen separately (as if a truck and a trailer) Also, they screwed up their eyes - they are nothing like that! They are waaaay more cute :D they are the cutest spiders on earth and maybe this is why they are not scary ;)

    You need to check out the Dune miniseries from the early 2000's. It's a 3 part made-for-tv movie that is actually quite good and I'd love your commentary comparing all three versions of Dune and their special effects.

    The fireplace fire in the first Shrek movie during the Hallelujah scene always sticks in my mind as being a really bad cg fire. It even feels like it's the wrong frame rate(there might be a chance it was a filmed fire that they projected onto grids)

  • Veyron722skyhook
    Veyron722skyhook Hace 2 meses +76

    Their explanation about CGI fire also helps explain why the Balrog in Lord of The Rings looks really good and still holds up to this day.
    Number 1, the fire was actually real fire that was filmed as a separate element and then simply manipulated using a particle system
    but also Number 2, the Balrog itself is a visually dark character and nearly all of its scenes also take place in very dark surroundings and dark lighting, thus the fire doesn't lose contrast or exposure.

    • Daveyboy100880
      Daveyboy100880 Hace 2 meses +8

      I much preferred the look of the Balrog in Fellowship to the Balrog in Two Towers! I think they went with fire sims in the second movie, and it just didn’t have the stylised punch of the first movie. Fellowship Balrog remains one of my favourite CG creatures.

    • Veyron722skyhook
      Veyron722skyhook Hace 2 meses +1

      @Daveyboy100880 I wouldn't have thought so.
      I think its more that because the Balrog is falling for a lot its scenes in movie 2, the fire and some effects are being somewhat blown away. And in its final scene, a lot of the flames have been extinguished, but the smoke is still there.

    Hi guys! Would love to see you react to the VFX in the three Chronicles of Narnia films. A lot of the effects have really stood up well considering those movies are 18, 15, and 12 years old. And then there’s a couple of shots that have really aged. But for the most part, the movies still look really good! There’s some great miniature shots in those movies too!

    To me, one of the most "signature" Star Trek visuals is the Mutara Nebula sequence in Star Trek II (1982). Another from the same movie is the Genesis Device demo sequence which is often credited as one of the first fully CGI sequences - though I think that one was covered on the channel before as it was done by the ILM CGI department which would eventually be spun off as Pixar.
    There were also really good shots in the first Star Trek movie (1979) which was one of the first post-Star Wars effects-heavy films.

    I think the original "Fantastic Four" works a lot better because of the overall tone of the movie. since it's very "cartoony" to begin with, I feel the design of the Human Torch is fitting.
    while the more recent one went for a little more "realistic" vibe - which is why details like the one you mentioned stand out more imo.

    Man I think it’d be so cool to see them breakdown cgi in video games! I’d love to see their knowledge and breakdowns of how video game cgi may differ in production or time. And if the looked at the new FinalFantasy16 game oh my! Such a beautiful game

    I think a great episode would be to just go through external ship shots for Trek that have been done through the years, going from TOS through to today, just the changing technology and techniques.

    Another Star Trek suggestion: The surreal time travel sequence in Voyage Home. IIRC, it was the first time CGI used an actual scan of actual actors in a movie - which was a huge step forward for 1986! It might also be interesting to look at the Genesis Planet animation from Wrath of Khan, since that was a jawdropper back in the day. Longest CGI shot up to that point, in 1982.

      It's more interesting than that, scanning people wasn't really a thing back then, they used a sort of digital pen that can plot points in space, so they had to sit still while a guy would go around their face point by point to plot out the wireframe mesh.
      Pixar did they same thing with their character designs, if you've ever seen the original clay sculpts for the characters in the early films, they have gridlines drawn on them as a guide so they can map them out with the pen.

    There is a scene in For All Mankind where a large rocket takes off from the sea, starting about 90% under the water. You get the visuals of the sea reacting to the rocket taking off and then the two blasts as the engines leave the water. I'd love to see a reaction to that.

    I don't know if it's CG fire, but the flame effects on Eric Bagosian at the end of Under Siege 2 are some of the most egregious and unintentional hilarious effects ever put to film.

    Honestly, I think the human torch holds up VERY well. It's lacking some detail you'd find nowadays, but it's completely believable.
    It doesn't take me out of it, and there's not much cgi, especially particle stuff, from back then where I can say the same

    I have watched so many of your react videos that i can't remember if you did this or not, but the other night I "made" my wife watch Johnny Mnemonic with me and i had forgotten about how it feels like a precursor to the matrix movies. Specifically with the brain jacking and the distopian society. But then there's also some weird Lawnmower Man type effects going on in a movie that came out the same year as Toy Story, and a weird partially off scree death where a guy gets cut in half with a laser string. I don't believe all the wad lost in my head all these years. If you already did this, i will have to find it, but if not, it might be worth a shot.... Also, Ice-T and a cyber dolphin..

    About the highly pressurized spiders, that's actually pretty realistic! It's how they move their legs, basically by hydraulics. Thats also why dead spiders curl up, as the resting position of their legs is all retracted and if there is no living organism pressurizing them they naturally return to their most bent state!

    I would say that's one of the two best Star Trek Effects, with the other one being them crashing the saucer of the Enterprise onto the planet. I remember that being a "Holy sh*t!" moment for me in the theaters. Another one that was really cool for the time (but looks VERY dated now) was in the final TOS movie when they attacked the klingons in zero-g and they had the blood drops floating around in the air. That was 1991, so it was pretty cool back then (only spoiled by Terminator 2 coming out earlier that year).

      For what it's worth, I think the Voyager opening still looks fantastic.
      Admittedly, part of me wants to see it discussed so the trivia of that infamous "Amiga shot" with the missing textures from the first episode comes up - aka. why splitting up renders between multiple different computers and ensuring every one of them has the same assets is difficult.

    I have my first suggestion!! I would love to see a video on the VFX of the music videos by Ronnie Radke & his group Falling in Reverse. Some shots are straight out of AAA films and are just breath taking. The opening shot of "Watch The World Burn" with the airplane explosion is wild stuff for a music video.

    I like how the one dude attacked by a spider who says “Looks like the only thing going is you dude” literally looks to the side where he should have seen the spider coming at him, yet he still doesn’t react.

      That's such a common thing in movies & TV: a character gets attacked from off-screen moving into frame - surprising the audience - but the character was facing the off-camera attacker the whole time so it shouldn't be a surprise at all.

      If you’re interested in looking at pretty spiders from a distance, I‘d recommend Dave‘s Little Beasties here on YT. He’s super chill, and even the really aggressive species seem more relaxed when he rehouses them. The comments are full of ˋphobes, joooin us. ;D
