Is CGI Getting Worse?

  • Published on Aug 23, 2018
  • In recent years I've noticed a dip in quality in CGI, resulting in many digital creations that feel very unreal. In this video, I explore why that may be. Please comment below if you know more about CGI and can answer the questions posed in this video.

    I work for a company in Belgium specialized in CGI / render . And All a can say about thoses bad cgi scene is the light is ruining the 3d model. The light is the key in 3D rendering !
    Just take a look at this kind of 3D render (yes all is in 3D),
    the light is making all the realism in that scene, not the models or the materials. Light and color grading at the best :) !

      @cdreid9999 first of all, it depends what they willing to pay for it.. and the othr thing is.. Pixar's Monsters University in 2013 took 29 hours /frame render time.. it took up to 80 hours to render a single frame of "The Jungle Book," so Disney had to use tens of thousands of computers from the Google Cloud...

    SWIM (as this would be a breach of contract to talk about) works in Digital Lighting for Weta Digital, the studio that made Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Apparently Peter Jackson (Director of both films) has lost his edge over the years. I live in a small city where a large portion of the population is employed by Weta, and whenever my friends are complaining about work, it's commonly about PJ (as he's called). He's well known for changing his mind at the last minute, and as a result a lot of the shots in The Hobbit were rushed, and SWIM had to re light for new angles that were not planned out from the start. This was a nightmare when you also consider that all the actors had to be shot from weird angles so that Bilbo was waist high next to Gandolf.

    The problem is more about lack of resources: VFX companies are being forced to do more work in less time with less pay, because there aren't enough artists and because directors use CGI to fix their own mistakes on set. Bad practical effects stand out too - just watch any Ed Wood movie.

    Some of us reached this conclusion a lonngggg time ago. My question is why are there people only just beginning to notice. If more people didn't have such low standards, this trend would never have developed. Stop praising these shitty superhero movies that somehow look faker than cartoons. Cringe-worthy dialogue. Predictable plots, that is when they bother to have a plot. This has been Hollywood's production strategy for over a decade (probably more like two): Comic book conversion/video game CGI cumfests. Yet, there's still such a size-able portion of the viewing audience who swallow this tripe then beg for more.

    Is the CGI worse, or are the designs and framing worse? People have the decency to hide bad CGI in ways that blend it with the envrionment, but anyone cocky about their CGI will flaunt it, despite it very obviously being CGI.

    For me the worst two sins of CGI are inaccurate physics - my brain picks them out immediately, and often linked to that, motion blur to cover up poor CGI. One of the worst examples for me are some of the broomstick fights in Harry Potter.

    Pretty simple principle at work: feature creep, a.k.a. software bloat. Yes, it is at work in CGI as well. It's our new reality. "R&D department, meet the Marketing department. You guys will be working together now least as long as there is capitalism. Good luck." Result: great stuff, greater, stuff, fantastic stuff, slightly less fantastic bloated stuff, etc.

    I work in the VFX industry since 2004... and the reason things look more artificial is simply MONEY!! The amount of money payed for the vfx studios in Jurassic Park and LOTR is simply waaaaaaaaay more than it's payed today. There's more studios, doing more work for less, and the film industry wants more for less, of course... Hence Digital Domain and Rhythm And Hues declared bankruptcy in the recent years because they simply couldn't operate at size they where. To make things worse, most big VFX Studios are opening branches in Asia, where workforce is even cheaper, to try to maintain the doors opened.
    Today is all about doing something fast and "good enough", for a fraction of money from 10 years ago... and it's getting worse and worse...

    The reflection of lack of money is excess of pressure on the workforce... People working for long hours and weekends for months... (and in some countries, without extra payments)
    That's why vfx is getting worse and worse... it's simple really!
    For example, ILM had to CONVINCE Spielberg that CGI could be used for the dinosaurs... He didn't want to do it... he though it would never be as good as go-motion (the motion-blurred stop motion used before cgi)... There was a lot of passion and effort to make it look absolutely amazing with the poor computers they had available at the time. Basically, digital artists WANTED to do it because it was fun, cool and just awesome to do it that way!!!!!

    Theses days, artists want to go home and see their kids and NOT HAVE TO WORK ON WEEKENDS AGAIN, like they have being doing for the past 4 months because the vfx studio can't hire more people because there's no budget!!!!!!!!

    not to mention the lack of senior people to hire, depending on the country you are and the VISA laws...

    it's a shame really...

    my 2 cents...

    PS: WETA was the vfx studio who did the VFX for The Hobbit, and in my opinion, they haven't being very good in compositing at all (compositing is mixing CG with real images). Just watch King Kong and you'll see how bad it is. It was a poor choice to trust the WHOLE compositing of The Hobbit to Weta since they are not the best with compositing, specially in this case where compositing was ESSENTIAL to make the RED 48 fps digital footage look as film... MPC and ILM would make it WAAAAAY better, and you wouldn't notice the difference. But WETA is not very strong in compositing... in my humble opnion...

    Cgi turns to crap when physics is thrown out the window or when things are moving so fast that it's clear no person would be able to function and make fighting decisions in reality. One doesn't need a degree in physics, the mind naturally recognizes this and discounts what it is seeing as fake even if the person viewing the movie is impressed with the story or the set and costume design in the movie.

    There's also the fact that you were nearly 20 years younger when Lord of the Rings was released, and most of what you are disappointed by is copies or sequels to the original. Movie ratings generally go down depending on the age of the viewer. Older people just aren't as impressed by movies... now you and I are both older viewers than we once were.

    Most movies use CGI and compositing, its just do good you would never notice it.
    The Social Network for example (winklevoss twins)
    Brokeback Mountain (hundreds of cgi sheep)
    And pretty much every other modern movie. Lots of them will adjust backgrounds to make it appear more pleasing or give an increased feeling of presence inside a certain time period or geographical location.

    Some CGI can look bad cause Studios rush the production. Not giving enough time for the CG artist to render out the scenes fully. When you have Studios rushing the CGI scenes, this is when you get bad CG, most of the time. Not to mention, those CG artists working over time to finish those CGI scenes, usually don’t get paid overtime. Blame the studios for rushing the production.

    I agree. I just looked at some old movies that use no cgi. They look and feel so much better, its real... And you say it correct the cgi models have no weight. autotune for music and CGI for film both do the same. It's ruining the art and make it less enjoyable to watch and listen.

    cut corners and things look worse ..also it all comes down to who does it and how good do they want it to look .. a stradivarius is still considered to be the best violin because of the way it was made and who made it ,some people are just better at doing CGI and some people will be happy with cheaper less impressive CGI .

    This is happening because studios wants to make those movies in a fast way , to sell fast and make another movie, and sell again.
    Artists are creating new realities, even when you as artist are creating something that you already made, each experience is new. You need to test things, is a circle of planning, making and testing, and you need time to do this.
    Artist aren't computers, they can't just press buttons and create, well... actually even computer need time to work.

  • De LaMar

    Very nice thoughts here. But its very simple IMHO. ILM (Industrial Light & Magic) is the key here. Its the #1 CGI company in the world. Basically every blockbuster hit movie is done by them. Also most mentioned in this video btw. ILM became so thought after during the last decades that they simply cannot keep up with the demand anymore. And as all businesses do, they prioritise based on budget and deadline. In other words, the bigger the movie, the more resources get attached to it. Simple as that.

    I think part of the reason the LOTR movies work so well visually is that they weren't always aiming for photo-realism. Rather, they were aiming for a stylized dream-like atmosphere and feeling. The backgrounds of many scenes are digital matte paintings, and they feel just like that: paintings.

    +Center Row; along with the total dearth of any actual plots (cartoon films such as all this deck is simply eye candy), there's been ZERO in the way if films for ADULTS (and for anyone reading this saying; 'I'm of legal age', that is laughable. An 'adult'is assume who's mature emotionally - NOT just physically). Films are made to be as action oriented - devoid of actual okie as possible for the sunken rain that it translates easier (can be seen by a wider audience). I know. I'm in this business, and it makes me sick. It's all candy.

  • Beth Shepherd
    Beth Shepherd Day ago

    I have a few ideas of why this might be, now that you bring it up. I'm supposed to be starting a program doing 3D models and animations, so while I don't have much experience or knowledge yet, I've looked into it and film theory in general a little bit.
    I think outside of what you said, it's possible that directors are deciding or being pushed into deciding to do CG even when it's not the right tool for the job. There's a lot of demand on blockbusters to up the spectacle a lot and make it larger and larger than life, to exaggerate things more. I think this may explain two effects that are making CG worse. The first, is that CG *isn't* always the best tool for the job. Practical effects tend to feel far more grounded, while CGI effects can be disorienting as they depart from reality more and more in order to feel 'bigger'. Tied into that idea, is the fact that action movies and similar sorts of movies are always striving to be bigger and more spectacular than the last. It means the monsters and the terrain and other things are becoming more extreme, to a point where they're becoming less relatable and less believable. It gets easier to see through the magic because it's too much. Another TVclipr pointed out that the T-Rex in the original Jurassic Park is seen in the frame between 2 cars, which makes its size instantly understandable, because we see cars in real life all the time. The T-Rex shown in Jurassic World has no frame of reference. The vehicle it's seen next to isn't a real vehicle, so how would we understand its size?
    I think these things could be playing a part in the execution of CG and could be why it's starting to look less real.

    I have to agree about the lighting mentioned here. CONTRAST is important. Most CGI models look pale and filtered. And all movements are unrealistically fast and -- there's no mass and inertia present.

    Something to remember is that the CGI industry itself has changed. Its less in the hands of the creators, and more a studio thing. Like any big organization, you have politics, people not wanting to give their opinion. Add to this that most output in hollywood and tv now goes through very small number of gatekeepers who sign off on the final product. Unrelated topic, but thats why you see the market now saturated with "woman-centric' and 'female friendly" stuff. It isn't that an entire industry suddenly liked this stuff overnight. Its that writers who have to feed families will write ANYTHING to get paid, and that literally means appealing to any idea gatekeepers may prefer. Pro-feminist ideas can't hurt with these people, and may help. The eventual public view is irrelevant.
    So it goes for CGI. Its an industry unto itself where people pay and get paid. I think the CGI changes are complex. Also, can't agree about Avatar. Thought it looked gimmicky for its time, a CGI demo reel.

    Hollywood is outsourcing the CGI work to lower income countries to save money, including companies in Pakistan and India. I know this because one of my ex-colleagues (named Farhan) worked with a team which did CGI for Harry Potter (idk which one) and 300. They're saving money as per hour wages in Pakistan for CGI (and everything else) are low as compared to Europe and North America therefore, companies have mind blowing computers to render mind blowing cgi.

    This video popped up in my feed again so I watched it a second time. While my opinion stays the same for the most part, I do believe now that within the next couple years, the number 1 Biggest change that’s going to occur with CGI movies is AI Ray Tracing.
    It’s getting cheaper and easier now; once people would buy Film cameras because they were cheaper and Blockbuster Movies would use the new but extremely expensive Digital cameras and technology because it was starting to get better.
    Now, Digital technology is commonplace in our society, down to high quality cameras in our phones for cheap compared to what it used to be, and AI Developers are getting better and better with AI Ray Tracing systems that can create uncannily realistic videos.
    Once this technology is good enough to be implemented into the CGI Movie Development process, even the shittiest CGI movies in 5-10 years will still look Breathtakingly realistic.

    I think what is key is the frame of reference. I grew up on comics and anime, I still enjoy some of them. But comic scenes and anime/manga scenes are, of course, created by animators and illustrators. For the most part they look cartoony. F/X in those films never bothered me as much since they copy the frame of reference. Other media, such as books have already their frame of reference in real-world locations that might exist, or our own imagination creates them in what we see in the world. That is why some of it is blaring. Compare the F/X in The Jungle Book to that of The Hobbit, it is so different and blaring, making the F/X in films such as Hobbit.

    It's obvious you don't know shit about CGI, how they're produced and how time-constraining the tight deadlines are hence the artists have to deliver thousands of VFX shots under constant pressure by studios and directors that don't know what the fuck they want changing their mind on a whim.
