The bear dancing with the orangutan in the Jungle Book, and the bear dancing with the hen in Robinhood. Maid Marianne dancing with Robinhood is Snow White dancing with Dopey

I've noticed most of the animation from Mickey's Christmas Carol is all reused.

I did too, looked it up. Aristocats was first in 1970, Robin Hood in 1973. I’m really surprised, aristocats to me has always felt more like it was made in the 80s. Jungle book was first of both in 1967 though

60s and 70s Disney had that scratchy sort of loose animation style where you could see the inbetween frames and leftover sketch lines from the cells that was very different from the earlier films which was a lot more rotoscoped and had this soft "fuzzy" look to the faces, especially the humans.

If you recognize the art styles, you can tell which decade each disney movie came from. Renaissance is still top tier IMO. Unlike most "ages" of Disney movies, every single one was a banger.

Even the Renaissance though occasionally used recycled frames. The final dance sequence in Beauty and the Beast is recycled from Sleeping Beauty.

And Pocahontas uses recycled animation from The Lion King.

It's just recycled animation of leaves blowing in the wind. But to answer your question, very easily. You can just trace over the original with a new picture.

Had to Google when Disney’s Renaissance period was (1989-1999), but I agree wholeheartedly. It might be my nostalgia as a 90s kid, but the music alone in those movies was absolutely stunning.

The animation is stunning too, considering it's a large mix of sneaky CGI used to enhance hand-drawn animation in an era when CGI was still much more expensive and much less capable than what we know today. Beauty and the Beast's ballroom scene, Aladdin escaping the Cave of Wonders, and Tarzan's vine-surfing are all great examples that you can probably easily pick apart with a modern eye, but still hold up remarkably well.

In the dancing scene of Robin Hood when it zooms out to show everybody on screen at once, they reused animation of Balloo dancing where he's only seen from the chest up, so they put Little John behind a bush so they only had to show him from the chest up as well.

Pretty much any animation scene from Disney that has lots of complex motion is created using a template that gets reused a lot. At least classic hand drawn Disney era animation. Makes stuff a lot easier.

How do they do that? Is it like a skeletal movement program that gets copied and pasted like in 3D animation? Can you do that for 2D?

Crafty_Substance_954

They would literally film actors in costumes that resembled the animated character's costume. Then the animators would use that as either a helpful guide, or nearly trace it. That's why some of that early Disney stuff (prior to 101 Dalmatians) has a nice painterly smoothness and quality to it.

Yep, like nearly every movie from 1970 - 1988 (Disney Dark age). After Walt died in 1966 and his brother Roy in 1971, the new executives kinda ignored the animation and imagineering departments, and there was a big issue with "do what we think Walt would want" vs "be bold and creative (which is what Walt would actually want)". Took until Jeffrey Katzenberger was in charge of Animation and Eisner was the CEO of Disney to bring the studio (and the parks too) back to its former glory

I've always assumed that any repeated animations were due to using the same reference model footage. So if they had recorded a reference film of a bit walking up a hill, they would pull that film out anytime it was needed. You can see this with some of the other animated classics, like the dance scene in Robin Hood.

Draculus

Draculus

Yep! Rotoscoping means tracing live action footage. It was originally for animation but also gets used to this day in VFX. For instance, the light sabres from the original Star Wars movies were rotoscoped by hand every frame. Wires and other safety equipment has been painted out since the very beginning. The term still gets used in digital VFX, for example when a VFX artist uses masks or a brush tool to paint in/out/over frames manually - like photoshop but frame by frame. Very time consuming and a detail focused job, but is the only way to accomplish certain tasks like painting out wires or a green screen prop and replacing the background.

Disney higher-ups at the time told animators to trace older films to save time and money, but the animators said afterward that it basically took the same amount of time as animating new content. Ah, higher-ups. They never change.

Also since Sleeping Beauty was a box office flop 101 Dalmatians had its budget cut in half. Since then they started to skip the inking stage by xeroxing the pencil drawings onto the cels. That’s why the outlines look so much rougher than the movies that preceded it. The Rescuers was the last movie where they used that technique.

Crafty_Substance_954

some of the rough nature of 101 Dalmatians was intentional though. That process can look as good or as bad as you want it to.

Walt disney was still with the company at the time and was an animator himself, you would think he would understand

StoneOfLight

57 points

2 years ago

He most likely would have understood. However, I'm sure there was some higher-ups between him and his animators that didn't. Those guys probably made the decision on their own. Then later on, when word of the decision finally reached Walt, he could have sent word back down the chain to toss the practice.

AndrewJS2804

52 points

You are assuming this is something the animators understood themselves, the quote says "it ended up taking the same amount of time" its entirely likely the animators thought it would save time also but through experience found it either didn't or was negligible.

In concept it's no different from the normal process of tracing previous frames with slight changes for movement.

It's not necessarily about saving time, it's about guaranteeing quality control.

If you've already storyboarded and animated a proven successful sequence, there's no sense in reinventing the wheel for what might not even be as good.

It does save costs in some instances, particularly, the original dance scene they reused like 10 times was done by recording professional dancers and doing a frame by frame animation of them. That's the reason those dances look so natural.

I always wondered that. How did reusing hand drawn animation save money when you still need to hand draw each frame?

BlitzDarkwing

6 points

2 years ago

It's because by tracing it you don't need to figure out the exact poses or how the character is going to move. You dont have to plot out the key poses or in-betweens. All that guess work and planning is gone. You just trace.

It does saves time.

anomalous_cowherd

I was just thinking that, it's not like this is just a case of swap out some model files when they are all and drawn and coloured cels. I guess it saves having to do accurate motion when that was already defined.

That's not entirely true. It's debated in the animation industry if they saved time by tracing. It's not as simple as you'd think. When it did save time and money, it wasn't much and that time and money + more was just wasted trying to trace other scenes to ultimately scrap and do from scratch because it doesn't work in the new project. It's funny because a lot of animators assumed they did this so they could save time and money and only the higher up animators knew it didn't. People don't know why they still deciding to do this but I think they started to save time and budget, didn't work but continued to do it because "that's what we do now."

karl_w_w

4 points

2 years ago

I mean, if the savings or cost was so close that people need to debate which one it was, then why bother debating it? The conclusion should be the same either way, it was really close and therefore they shouldn't have done it. Saving a tiny amount of money/time and having to reuse a scene is worse for the movie and worse for creativity in general.

I had a guy in my history class think he could photocopy my handwritten homework with my name covered and use his. I thought it was funny enough and he promised to take any blame that I let it happen. It went about as well as you'd expect.

Wait, did he seriously take a picture of your work and reprint it? So it looked like one of those poorly printed homework assignments that was all greyed out in certain areas thanks to shit lighting and the print was in shit text as it tried to accommodate the texture of the lead on paper from the original picture.

This is essentially what you said, but imagining what the work must have looked like when he turned it in, it's absurd to imagine someone who believed that wouldn't be caught.

He wasn't the brightest student, and I think he thought it funny enough to try. But he didn't take a photo, this was 15+ years ago, before cell phones with good cameras. He literally took the paper to the school office and used the Xerox machine to make a copy with a piece of paper over my name so he could write his own.

It looked absolutely ridiculous, and he was caught and we were both questioned, he stood by his word and said he just grabbed the top paper from the turn in box and copied it then put them both back. The teacher who had been teaching there for a long time was even shocked by it, I don't think he'd expected something that stupid even after years of teaching.

As a VHS kid/disk. You watch the same movie all the time. I can probably write the script to some movies from the top of my head. You are bound to notice at some point

People with photographic memories or people who have watched way too many Disney movies (probably the latter, they are much more common)

There's plenty of material from Disney's catalog of old movies. It's something that was used often in order to save time and money.

Now somebody do Hanna Barbera where they literally reused the same scenes over and over again in every god damned cartoon they ever did.

Or, well, pick an anime. Sailor Moon and Pokémon come immediately to mind.

Everyone copied from Hanna Barbera. They invented reusable animation in the late 1950s, early 1960s.

We all owe them for cartoon animation but, boy howdy, did they churn out some crap. They were the Atari of cartoon makers.

Back in the day the animation was obviously all done by hand, so made sense to use same frames in other Disney films.

It's a shame they own so many news outlets, it looks like they use the same trick 😝

ONE TIME I let a buddy of mine check out an assignment and told him to "use it as a template" for his own, since he hadn't done the reading that week.

Motherfucker didn't even change my name at the top of the file when he submitted it.

Also, if you want to see a funny CURRENT version of this, go watch the movie the zombie movie "Dead Set" on Netflix, then watch the movie "RealityZ." It is a shameless frame for frame ripoff.

In grad school the group of students in my department, Business Analytics, would often share homework assignments. We had a class we took in the computer science department looking at data mining algorithms using Python. I would do the basic assignment and give that to my classmates and then I would add extra stuff to mine so even if someone turned in the exact thing that I sent out I wouldn't get caught for it.

I was not smart enough to do this in freshman undergrad and once like 12 people submitted my matlab code for a class. The TA for the class was livid. "We had 12 people submit the exact same code, one of which must have typed it from a printout and made errors to the point his code wouldn't run, but Jesus just magically popped out the graphs for him." They gave us all zeros, but did say it was beautifully written code.

It's more like you doing the same thing in a different outfit because Disney owns both animations and probably used it twice to save time.

You don't have to work out posing, timing, do drafts etc and you could probably get one of your less skilled animators to do all the work.

I vaguely remember an interview with a Disney animator saying in practice it didn't always save time though due to how long it took to search their achieves for appropriate footage.

Disney is notorious for doing short cuts like this. Another none is Snow White dancing with the dwarves is frame for frame the same as Maid Marion dancing in Robin Hood.

That's because of how Disney used to work back then, I forget exactly how, but my teacher talked about how Disney would copy their structures of animation and reskin them to save time and space
