Guess you haven’t seen the classic “A Talking Cat!?!” with Eric Roberts in the title role and the guy who played Buffy from “A Family Affair”. I suggest watching the Rifftrax version as it makes it slightly palatable https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a52ArTsCsX4

Tech is still pretty early on in development, and I’d wager it’s far less effort to have your computer crunch the frames than to draw them yourself.

right, the speed and ease is the improvement. But with all the OMG AI IS RUINING REALITY scare going on, it’s almost comforting to know this tech is at a pretty low level.

Probably means we’re only 18 months from photorealism though.
