    I just saw the new TRON: Uprising episode, and I think the animations were absolutely fantastic. Then I got to thinking: what if TFP had cell shaded animation (or whatever, I'm not that literate with this type of stuff)? Would you love or hate that?

    EDIT: Forgot to give links to TRON Uprising. Here it is: http://www.1channel.ch/watch-2733136-TRON-Uprising

    No thanks. That kind of animation isn't my thing.

    Random Fact: Tron Uprising and Transformers Prime are animated by the same company.

    Prime animation can't be beat, especially compared to that IMO.

    At least it's not stretch-and-bounce animation like *shudder* Fanboy and Chum Chum.

    Stretch-and-bounce is almost as bad as flash. Both irritate me.
    The current TFP animation is perfect. It's fluid and believable.

    No.

    Prime's animation's perfect as it is. No need to change it even if it's expensive.

    Stretch-and-bounce is to CGI as Flash is to cel animation.

    No, Tron Legacy is perfect. Prime is almost perfect.

    On a related note, I'm watching that series. Why I haven't heard of it before is anyone's guess.

    Fantastic.

    I'd also like to note a type of CGI I hope never to see again-- the type used in Iron Man: Armored Adventures. It's like freaking origami.

    No, I'm quite content with what we have so far. The facial expressions for some characters are always a treat and the action sequences are better than I originally thought they'd be.

    This. TFP is better with the CGI that is already used.

    I won't Download that. Tron Uprising doesn't air till June. How do you have a link in May?

    Anyway, I watched some trailers. It looks pretty cool. The humans looks weird but the rest is good. That's just what Prime has but this is cheaper though less smooth looking.

    I'd love it if they canceled Prime but got the same people to make the next series, telling the same story but with this animation and with more characters and stuff.

    Careful, hombre. Even in context, that's a loaded statement.

    I'm sorry but why?

    I'm mean I am asking here but from what I've seen the Tron Uprising animation is more jerky and not as fluid as in Prime. That and it's not really as detailed in my opinon.

    If it's only a different art style Tron Uprising's going for that's understandable but Prime in comparison has the details and animation more deatled and smoother in comparison when it comes to being realsitic.

    Again it's only an opinon. And maybe I'm being a little unfiar because Tron's world is cyberbernetic while the world of Prime is more realsitic.

    But if it was the same story then that means the problems you already have the show will still be present in it. And I doubt that the crew that's working on Tron Uprising will have enough budget to at least have one new character if that's all the budget it has on the animation and art style alone. Compaired to this show Prime acutally has more budget to do more of these things.

    I'm not Saying Tron Uprising is a bad series because I didn't see it yet.

    Also to want Prime to be canceld but have the next series be like Prime isn't that basically a remake? That doens't make a little sense to me. If there's something I'm missing someone tell me.
