The Creator of the Second Dimension - Chapter 46
Chapter 46 .CG and hand-painted
Wu Yi’s interview, even with his declaration, spread throughout the circle for the first time.
Most people saw this interview late at night and the next morning. At this time, Chengkong Video Network had already put up trailers of “Soul Eater: Zero” and several other animations.
People saw Xu Rui who was so praised by Wu Yi in the interview, so naturally they searched for the Voice of Stars, and then learned through other news that Xu Rui was working on a new animation.
Soon, the animated trailer of “Soul Eater: Zero” has been played more than 200,000 times.
Perhaps due to the extremely high evaluation of the director of Wu Yi, people naturally have a lot of expectations for Xu Rui. Therefore, this slightly ordinary trailer is rather disappointing.
At noon, when Xu Rui was still walking around some indescribable notebooks involving male wrestling skills with Yi Qianqian in the exhibition, there were already several questions about “Soul Eater: Zero”.
Under one of the answers with the most comments, entitled “How to evaluate the “Soul Eater: Zero” trailer”, there were several high praise comments.
[Jiro]: A normal trailer. From the fragments, it looks like a general kingly battle. There is no outstanding content in the painting. To be honest, I don’t believe that this is the work of the director of “Voice of the Stars”. , Maybe we have too much expectation for Xu Rui, he is just a student who has just graduated from university after all.
[Menmenmen]: Seeing the trailer, I checked the relevant information a bit, and finally came to the conclusion: the unremarkable original third-rate rushing street + rookie newcomer editor + fledgling newcomer director + a bunch of gangsters The abandoned old man production team = “Soul Eater: Zero”, I watched the trailer, which is the best part of the whole film.
[The past is like smoke]: The booklet of the original comic book of “Soul Eater” sold less than 100,000 last year. Even in “Monthly Youth Frontline”, it was just an ordinary work. It is bound to be impossible for the magazine to invest heavily in the production of such a work. Coupled with the fact that it is exclusively broadcast by New Frontier Media’s own Chengkong video network, it is unreasonable to expect animation.
[Remy Remy]: xswl, what age is there and this kind of old-fashioned animation, do you want to laugh at me and inherit my mortgage? Let me put it here. The sales volume of this animation can reach two thousand. I will buy three sets of CDs to support it and change the avatar to the word Soul Eater.
After the rendering of the side-by-side hits by the big Vs before, many people in the question have thought that Xu Rui is probably a newcomer with better luck, plus the animation trailer of “Soul Eater: Zero” does not look like a fire animation. Naturally, they listened to what the big V said, thinking that Xu Rui’s animation is likely to be a spicy chicken animation.
The psychology of people is so strange. If there is no expectation at the beginning, or even the first impression is slightly bad, then the average work will be satisfactory.
If there are high expectations from the beginning, even if it reaches the pass line, it will be considered inferior.
Xu Rui didn’t know what he asked about. He accompanied Yi Qianqian to the exhibition for a day. After returning home, he was already exhausted and took a shower and lay down to rest.
Early the next morning, Xu Rui woke up Yi Qianqian. After breakfast, the two took the subway to Phantom Animation and started a new day’s work.
According to the animation production cycle, Xu Rui should now be in the stage of the fourth episode’s storyboarding, and the first episode’s storyboard inspection has been completed. This week, a processing meeting is needed to determine the processing methods for the painting, performance, background and other materials. After the meeting is confirmed, the design draft will be drawn.
The design draft will determine the rough draft of the characters, including the exact position of the characters, the content of the background, the expressions of the characters, how the actions are connected, the way the lens moves, etc., with the design draft, the original artist can follow the design draft. To draw the original painting.
In the first episode, some of the discussions have been conducted during the production of the trailer, so there are no major changes in the performance and painting, only a little bit of disagreement.
“Although this motorcycle scene was drawn with CG to save time at the time, wouldn’t it be better to use hand-painted in the actual broadcast?”
Anyuan is the painting supervisor and the first original painting in the first episode. After resigning from Lao Huan Dian, he went to Jingping’s Love Craftsmanship. He has been an original painter for several years and has been fighting on the front line.
He refers to the scene in the first episode where the heroine (fake) drives a motorcycle to fight with evil spirits. In the trailer, this is made using CG animation. You only need to design a model of the motorcycle to quickly complete the scene. , If you change to hand-painting, you need a lot of reference to paint, and the workload will also increase.
“Since all have been made using CG, you can just continue to use it. It can also reduce your workload for Anwara.”
Deng Shixin, who is in charge of 3D, said that he did the modeling of that motorcycle by himself. Deng Shixin has been interested in cars and warships since he was a child. There are all kinds of models in his home, so he can be said to be very proficient in one piece.
“My workload is okay, but can the current CG technology really achieve that effect? To be honest, I think the trailer screen has a little less impact, and the CG model is still too rigid.”
“But in this case, the production cycle of the first episode is a bit tight…”
Deng Shixin glanced at Xu Rui. After all, he is the director and performer, so Xu Rui has the final say.
“Well, let’s see how the specific CG performance is going to be finalized this afternoon, do you think it’s okay?”
Xu Rui did not directly make a decision, but made a suggestion.
“Okay, I’ll go back and find out that paragraph immediately.”
Deng Shixin nodded and made a note in his notebook.
Yasahara didn’t say anything, only turned the meeting minutes over one page. UU reading www.uukanshu.com
There is no disagreement in the other parts, the production policy of the first episode is determined, and it is noon.
After the meeting, Anyuan stood up, brought his own lunch, and returned to his place to eat slowly after the pantry had heated up.
Deng Shixin ordered the takeaway. The yellow braised chicken is cheap and affordable, but if he eats too much, he will get tired. After he finished eating, he went back to confirm the CG that he was going to show in the afternoon.
Xu Rui helped Yi Qianqian and herself heat up the meal and put it in the pantry.
Before Yi Qianqian came over, Xu Rui saw Li Ruoxuan touching a lunch box in her hand.
She attended the processing meeting in the morning. Xu Rui thought she would return to the editorial department, but she did not expect to stay.
“Hee hee, I think you bring your own meals every day, so I tried to make it yourself.”
She sat down on Xu Rui’s left hand position and opened her pink lid, a lunch box with a cute puppy pattern.
Ordinary rice, tomato scrambled eggs, potato cakes that are not neatly shaped, and boiled broccoli.
“Would you like to taste it?”
Li Ruoxuan pushed the lunch box in front of Xu Rui and asked.
“Then I will be welcome.”
Xu Rui picked up the chopsticks and put a little tomato scrambled egg into his mouth.
The next moment, his face turned stern, and he looked at Li Ruoxuan in disbelief.
Xu Rui couldn’t imagine why Li Ruoxuan, who looked so cute, had a normal-looking dish in his hands, why it showed such an indescribable taste.
There seemed to be an old **** whispering in his ear, babbling an unknown vocabulary.
After a long time, Xu Rui suppressed the instinctive urge to vomit and swallowed tomato scrambled eggs into his stomach, glanced at Li Ruoxuan who was looking forward to him, and hesitated and said.
“Uh, it’s the taste of ordinary tomato scrambled eggs.”
