Full motion videos and their services are going out of fashion to be replaced by animation
If you have been watching videos online or on TV, you may have noticed more and more animated videos than full motion. Recently, the entertainment industry has been undergoing a change where they have replaced most of their video content department to be more dedicated to animation.
This change is the result of animated video offering a lot of utility in every way. Their take over is not only in full motion, but other formats of videos as well. For example, in the cartoon industry, hand-drawn cartoons have been completely replaced with animation. We are seeing this same rise in movies, whether its motion captures or even completely animation films. We have compiled a list to explain just why this shift is occurring.
More and more people prefer animation to full motion. They realize that with full motion, the product is not always the one they were hoping for. Many advertisement companies are now making their commercials in completely animated form. Overall, people realize that animation offer more.
Another reason for the animation’s growing demand is that it has become mainstream thanks to the film industry. The explosion of animation films has been recognized by many and people now prefer them over full motion.
When it comes to making videos, there are certain things that full motion just simply cannot achieve. Whether it’s making a commercial with an animal mascot or making a video based in space, there are just come concepts that are out of reach for full motion.
Because of this, animation is seen as a more powerful medium that lets people create whatever they want without undergoing the constraints of full motion. Artists can make more and be extremely versatile with animation and can make nearly any forms of videos that are needed.
Ask any artist, and they will tell you the same thing. You can make more animated videos in a given time than you can make full motion. Powerful software programs give the artist a very quick and easy way to create animated videos without much of any setup time. With full motion, you need to get actors, scout locations, setup lighting etc. Animation on the other hand can be done with a few taps of a button.
Animation is quick and has a higher overall quality and can be done fast. All of these are traits that are hard to ignore.
Animation is a very cheap way of creating videos. The most important tools that you need to make an animated movie are almost all exclusively free. Even Pixar, the world class animation studio, has recently made their animation software free to download. Most other tools are also on the internet for free.
On the other hand, full motion requires equipment and manpower, all of which require a substantial expenditure. When you pit it against animation, most people would pick the latter as it is not only higher quality, but also very cheap. The cost that animation saves for anyone is a huge benefit, especially if you are up and coming with not much capital to work with.
