hi everyone I'm a newbie and i wanted to know how makoto make his animations. How does he make his scenery does he use a program? also are all his buildings 3d? and how does he combine the 2d anime with the 3d? last question how does he achieve such beautiful renders and colors for his animation? 5cm per second is so beautiful and i never seen an anime like it (visually). so, i was wondering can someone please tell me what does he use his programs for( ex: he uses 3d to make complex buildings and props, or a painting program to paint the skies etc)...basically i want to know his production process because i can't find it nowhere thank you Smile sorry for bad english

There is a great video on Youtube, that might answer some of your questions: Making of Neko no Shuukai

Unfortunately it's all in Japanese but it tells pretty much all you need by the picture.

Interesting parts are at 2:18, where Shinkai-san shows the glow effect he likes to use and explains that for this one feature he decided to try to convey the "warm feeling" he wanted the scene to have only by the painting and color shades - like it used to be done before in the anime that he liked/influenced him.
Another one is at 2:55 where he explains that he decided to model this particular scene in 3D because he "didn't have the confidence that he can make a scene like that in a realistic way right out of his head".

The production steps were:
1. character design
2. rough storyboard (keyframes(?) - to "find the right flow of the story" -
and sounds) and slideshow to check the flow
3. determining the color scheme (and shadows and stuff)
4. final coloring, (effects)
5. voice acting

I guess the production process for the bigger works is a little different because of the many different departments working on the piece but nevertheless this provides a nice insight.

EDIT: sorry if I misheard something or so - my Japanese is still not much good.

Hi Netta,

There are some older posts on here that deal with what type of software he uses and a bit of the process. I'll see if I can find them.

I can tell you ... for the new movie there were two studios ..One for the backgrounds (sweet, sweet huge monitors) and another studio for the foreground images and animation. I looked over one persons shoulder and they had a picture of a train stations (actual location) in one corner of the screen and the rest of the huge screen was the image rendered digitally. I was blown away at the level of detail being meticulously put into each image. It definitely shows in the work. Anyway ... I'll see what I can find from the old posts Smile Welcome to the Forums.

Laz
