DID THE HAIR GO THROUGH HER ARM?!?!
HER HAIR WENT THROUGH HER ARM WHEN SHE BROUGHT IT FORWARD
OH MY GOD ANOTHER ANIMATION ERROR?
OK WAIT! WAIT! *stares at it for way too long* Wait…no I’m honestly trying to figure it out…maybe it flipped over her shoulder when she turned…? maybe…Oh hell I can’t tell it needs to be slowed down. XDDD;;;
There it is.
Dang, such a sneaky animation cheat though…
HELLO VISUAL EFFECTS MAJOR HERE LET ME TELL YOU ALL A THING
Besides the fact that making hair is incredibly challenging in the first place, making hair react to that movement IS PRETTY DAMN DIFFICULT like seriously bless the TDs who pulled this off. As hopefully we all know, there is no magic button that makes this happen. They had to create a new program called Tonic for Elsa’s interaction with her hair. Furthermore, they had to work with 400,000 CGI threads and compare that to Rapunzel WHO HAD 140,000 LIKE WHOA HOT DAMN WHAT THE HECKY THAT’S A LOT OF HAIR.
Btw I’m super into sources so here you go if you want proof it’s stated right here: http://www.fxguide.com/featured/the-tech-of-disneys-frozen-and-get-a-horse/
And the hair on Rapunzel’s head: http://www.awn.com/articles/3d/rapunzel-lets-her-down-tangled/page/1,1

ONE MORE THING there is a DIFFERENCE between error and cheating!!!! Cheating is intentional of course, and honestly to survive such a technological ordeal such as this you need to work smarter not harder. The chances of an error slipping into a major feature film such as this without being noticed are very veeeeeeeery unlikely and I can assure you they would not happen in a huge money shot such as this. This IS Disney after all and they know their shit. If anything her hair was purposely brought partially into her arm in a spot we can’t see while she was reaching back to pull her hair forward, to make the movement flow better. In reality everything that occurs in this shot is always seen from one specific camera’s view, so if something weird is happening in a spot the audience cannot see then who cares. If you make a movement, an effect, anything absolutely perfect in areas that are never seen then you are wasting your time. Again, work smarter not harder.
IN CONCLUSION I’ve been watching this gif run for several minutes now and I can assure you this isn’t an error! There’s a looooooooot of technology and programming behind these several seconds, and a movement like this wasn’t possible several years ago. Elsa is not only moving her hair, she’s changing her hair style right on screen! THAT’S PRETTY DANG HARD BLESS YOU HAIR TDS, BLESS YOU.
Okay I’m done, the more you knowwww!
I love it when people who know about animation/visual effects talk about animation/visual effects
