@CanisWolfred I don't see why you'd think Disney would go that route with the CG (especially since it's a post-Frozen Disney) other than 'Sony and FOX did it that way in their Live-Action/CG hybrid film'.

What are they gonna do, use puppets? They said Live-Action. It's not even a CG movie. That's gonna mean people alongside cartoon characters, and they're gonna need a miracle to not make that look weird.

I said I don't think they're gonna go that route with the CG (assuming we're both talking about the same 'Smurfs/Alvin' uncanny valley).

As for the 'people alongside cartoon characters' issue: It's been done before (not CG, but Disney's gotten good at CG so I'm sure it won't matter) and, since Disney has a history with miracles, I'm optimistic about how they'll handle it. :)

IMO, Real people alongside CG is uncanny by default. It's hard enough seeing it in movies like Transfirmers, but at least those are trying to look realistic (even though it still looks fake). When they try to make them look cartoonish, the real people just exemplify how fake they look and it just winds up being disturbing. It works with 2D characters because they're such a polar opposite, but CG is stuck in a sort of limbo between Cartoon and reality, and as such can never work alongside real people.

Really, mixed formats in general look weird and there's absolutely no need to do them. Once the novelty where's off, it just ends up looking worse than it could've been.

I stand by my previous post [if anyone can make it look good, it's Disney], but you make a very good point. Like @Captain_Toad said, though, we'll just have to wait and see. EDIT: But I understand now if you're still skeptical.

But seriously, guys: A CHIP N' DALE MOVIE. I know this is after TPM and other revivals that ruined your childhood, but, no matter how many times I remind myself of that, I can't stop being excited for this!!! :D

@Miss_Dark Good luck sleeping! XD

Disappointment of the day was realizing I'm working hard to earn a degree in something that I only think is realistic, where as the thing I'd love to be studying is almost impossible to find a living in. Hobbies exist for a reason I guess!

Judging by the late updates and constant server blackouts as of late, something seems to really be going wrong with the [fan-project] I've been following. :( Hope it gets resolved.

PS: I'm withholding the name of the fan-project because I'm not entirely sure it's OK to mention this sort of fan-project by name. I've contacted NL about this and haven't recieved an answer yet, so I'm stuck being vague.

Yea some teachers and professors are just… unprofessional. One professor made an elective class and textbooks are required. Guess who the author for that textbook? Yep it is that professor himself. The worst part is that the exam have questions that only be answered from the textbook which make classes seem pointless.

lol, that's pretty common practice actually. At my uni some professors will set their books as required even when they're totally not required for the course. It's an easy way to accidentally waste a few hundred dollars :p

Anyway my disappointment is that my timetable for this semester comes out on the 17th. That's literally a week before semester starts. Other uni's have gotten theirs as early as December. It's been impossible to plan work shifts, transport and other stuff too. It'll be lame if I find out I can't even go to the stuff I applied for just because my uni timetable clashes with it.

Well, our dog of 15 years passed away tonight...

He was doing fine this morning, but sometime during the afternoon he was laying on his side & seemingly lost all strength in his legs because he couldn't stand up (even when we tried to physically stand him up). We gave him a bath to try & perk him up, and after we dried him off we lied him down with a blanket so he could rest, but he never got back up, and a couple hours ago he stopped breathing.

@RR529 Aw man, that tough. :( Having delt with the loss of a dog twice before, I'm all too familiar with the emotions you must be going through.

At least he passed away peacefully.
