i don't know i wasn't much a fan of xerox films
animation
Anonymous: What do you mean when you said that Disney had to use a cheaper animation technique after Sleeping Beauty?

voodoo-tiki:

kristoffbjorgman:

okay so for all of their animated movies from Snow White right up until Sleeping Beauty, the way they actually animated stuff was by drawing it all out on paper beforehand, then placing a thin sheet of transparent plastic (a cel) over it and tracing the outline with coloured ink. When it was dry, they would flip the cel over and paint in the rest of the colours with paint on the back to make one frame of animation.

obviously it was really time-consuming and expensive to basically draw out the entire movie twice (once with the animators on paper and again with the inkers on cells) so when photocopiers/xerox machines started becoming a thing in the 50’s they were able to skip the inking stage altogether and photocopy the pencil-on-paper sheets of animation directly to the cels before painting them.

It was cheaper but it had a lot of drawbacks as well - they could only photocopy in black and white for a long time and because there was little to no touchup on the pencil animation, in a lot of their earlier xerox movies you can see stuff like reference lines appear randomly on characters for a few frames before disappearing again - compare the fluid and colourful style of Sleeping Beauty to the black, scratchy one of 101 Dalmatians

anyway, they used the xerox process right up until Rescuers Down Under which was the first animated movie to be inked and coloured entirely digitally - they scanned the animation from paper directly into a software bundle called CAPS (computer aided production system) that they developed with Pixar, which allowed them to ink and paint each cel of animation, as well as ‘film’ the entire movie digitally

Compare The Little Mermaid to Beauty and the Beast to see how much better pretty much everything looks

CAPS was used right up until Home on the Range until Disney decided it was going to go purely CG (the very last thing they made with it was actually their The Little Matchgirl short in 2006), and by the time Princess and the Frog and Winnie the Pooh went into production CAPS was considered outdated so those 2 were done with a similar but more recent system called Toon Boom Harmony (each frame of animation was still all hand-drawn onto paper before being uploaded digitally however)

I actually like the xerox look. It has a sort of rawness and vibrant appeal - it looks more like a moving drawing. The animation itself is still beautiful no matter what the finishing technique used.
