RE: Dinosaur Planet

Dan and Aaron make good points about techniques for animation and
budgetary constraints being factors.  Paleontology illustration has always
been a work in progress and I think, uneven in its results.  That is not a
criticism as such, just an observation.  As you know, with single cell
animation it is possible to literally interpret drawing by drawing the
frames of an actual motion picture. A trifle hard to make movies of
dinosaurs, but when other things/animals/persons are filmed and then
redrawn into animation cells, the results can be wonderful. To say nothing
of expensive and time-consuming.
But pleeese  can't we ditch the obligatory cliche volcanoes going off all
over the place :)  Jane D
