Re: BBC Spinosaurus video Re: T. rex specimen at Carnegie on NPR and other news
Yes, but they seem to have taken the concerns of this forum on board. They seem
to have prioritised accuracy over photorealism. Every event in the series
seems to be backed up by a fossilised example, and they make the difference
between "would", "probably"' and "did" clear in the narration.
As for the slightly stylised animation, I think that's to allow them the space
(and budget) to make the whole scenes CGI not just the animals, so they can
have control over everything including angles, time and species in a way you
can't with shot video.
