Digital Go-Motion. An advancement> Or a sell out to compete with CGI?

A while back some of you may remember that I created a motion blur technique to add to stop motion similar to RSMB, but at no cost. I've refined this technique to a very simple pre-set now, that can be reduced or increased depending on how much blur you want on a hand animated movie creation. Below , two links with the blur applied to the Valley of Gwangi Dino fight. And stop motion test footage from Jurassic Park 1993. Provided courtesy of Lionel Ivan Orozco. Question is. Do we need it ,or less blur effects to keep it looking like traditional work to a degree. And so on. Many animators have mixed views when it comes to bluring the line between stop mo and CGI. What do you think?

I posted an older version of this video quite some time ago.

Lol, Why am I not suprised

I think you should do what looks good to you because its your personal style. Of course we all strive to better our selves working the craft of stop-motion, there is no standard here just unique styles, and if its not broken then don't try fixing it. Ya dig?
