AI enthusiast champions new algorithms to obliterate the in-betweening process:

Animation lovers, rejoice! The labor of love that is hand-drawn 2D animation is about to be revolutionized by a pioneering deep learning technique that automates the painstaking inbetweening process.

As someone who worked as a rough in-betweener for Disney in the mid 90s, I can tell you that there was no part of it that was painstaking. It was a beautiful experience and I loved every minute of it.

This is a revolution that’s kind of missing the point. 🎨
