Oh, I see what you mean. I feel the same way about animation, at least for
now. CGI is good, but it's not as good animation, CGI, for characters, at
least currently, makes the characters feel somewhat emotionless, at least for
human characters, but for Beast Wars, since the Transformers are machines,
even though they are living machines, CGI works okay for me. I like CGI, but
I don't care too much for CGI humans, can't imangine an all CGI true UC
Gundam series. Machines look good as CGI, even Gundams would if done right,
but I don't care too much for CGI humans.
