    Trigger warning for loud sounds towards the end of the vid.
    This was entirely edited, and was supposed to be exported, in 48fps, not 50. Funny thing is, Premiere simply doesn't allow custom frame rates in its export window, despite supporting it as a sequence setting. I could have exported the Premiere file into After Effects and added the sequence to the render cue, but I couldn't because AE threw me an error every time I tried. That, combined with the legitimately unbelievable amount of bugs and errors and crashes left me feeling so exhausted and numb that I ultimately decided it was worth sacrificing one 25th of a second's worth of timing here and there. If you catch any editing errors, that'd be why. Oh well!!

      Fantastic rant, I love it! And you're absolutely right. I love how you underline the intent of the artist. Those who would seek to replace artists with machine learning and AI clearly don't understand what art is for. Replace stuff that people don't want to do, or can't do. But people get joy (and their livelihood) from creating art, and they want to do it. It's one of the things that make us human. I'm no Luddite, and I love using new tools to create my animation. But when it starts to encroach upon the fulfillment that I get from creating, then no thanks! You might argue that this is just interpolation and chill out. But my response to that is just wait, this is just getting started.

      1. Aaron B.

        @Misty Grue Nvm you're getting a 15% raise my guy. You're something special bro

      2. Misty Grue

        @Aaron B. oh, so u actually that stupid to take the side of random "artist" from this video who doesnt know sh*t about actual arts, instead of 99.9% ppl in the world? ignoring the fact that

      3. Aaron B.

        @Misty Grue if you ever get that position as a professional troll you deserve at least a 10% raise. You're fuckin good bro, you're goin places

      4. Misty Grue

        @Aaron B. nah, thats reality. im fkn tired of slideshows. i cant play consoles coz of 30 fps which are just static pictures for me. most of ppl cant see the difference between 40 and 50 fps due to low iq, for example, while high iq ppl can see the difference between 60 and 70 or 100 and 120 and so on. my eyes actually hurt when im watching something with less than 60 fps for too long coz it creates too much tension.

      5. f001ish

        well said :)

    2. Mister Guy

      But Mario in Unreal looks better than Mario 64. That's not a comparison you want to make. The original looked bad.

    3. Lars Pfeffer

      I have my TV's motion interpolation on by default. Where's your god now.

    4. Initials JD

      Alright imma be honest, i just thought it looked pretty neat before, but as a gimmick. You sure changed my mind, and now i realize why exactly some frames look messed up because of it, or unnatural movements. Love your work btw ;)

    5. Initials JD

      *Appeal* 👁👄👁

    6. Synko Bass

      Great video, thank you for creating and sharing! I feel like the very same thing happened to music and musicians. A lot of things can get manipulated by computers now. They can fix singers pitch with autotune and put the drummer perfectly into the grid, lock that BPM 100% for the song and many more thigs. Form me it takes away from the personality of the music. Things like bending notes in a certain non linear ways, playing behind or in front of the beat to create a special kind of groove or slightly speeding up and slowing down the song for certain passages. Art should never become a formula, it's already perfect with it's imperfections.

    7. LilxVibes

      i’m a gamer, yet, this is the only time i’ve never wanted 60FPS.

    8. Eirik Sundby

      The first result on youtube when you search for Kill La Kill's opening is a 60 fps monstrosity which floats all over the place and is nauseating to look at

    9. Eirik Sundby

      THANK YOU SO MUCH. GOD I HATE MISUSED INTERPOLATION. Your video was very informative and I found it very enjoyable and I think you articulated yourself extremely well :)

    10. E

      Maybe I got it wrong, but shouldn't "Animated on fours" be 6 FPS?

    11. Flopsicle

      a n d i t i s s a v e y o u m o n e y ah yes, the is grammar

    12. Alexandru Tănase

      Only at the end you gave the best explanation Using DAIN is like using a jackhammer to wash your car

    13. Nathan Joseph

      This is just amazing

    14. Lord Darrington

      Wait so this whole video was just an ad for kakani?

    15. Youtube Pizzer

      is there a comparison between AI interpolation and standard interpolation programs though?

    16. Pixwool

      I agree with most, but the “60 fps is bad” thing is bullshit.

    17. iamcamii

      3:27 10:10 12:09 don’t mind this- im just saving these for a reference:)

    18. DarthKura

      hey please make the couch animation in 60fps. It is not smoothe enough

    19. stinky 666

      i agree

    20. Jonhyfun

      damn the animation at the very end looks good :)

    21. \\Cheech Unlimited\\

      I would say at least really wavy motions in animation do look beautiful in 60fps, intended or not

    22. 3lit3gn0m3

      ...Well thanks for balancing the audio at the end. Nothing like having a jumpkindascare before bed.

    23. vo khang

      I think enhanced animation is alot smother bút the fucking smearing and sometimes janky animation makes it absolute shit

    24. Melchior Philips

      As a translator, I vibe with this video whenever someone asks me why I ask money for something Google Translate does for free.

    25. Beef

      I used to keep wondering why anime isn't 60fps. Now 60fps anime just makes me want to puke

    26. Soviet Op

      Gonna upscale this to 300,000 fps brb

    27. BrandyBuizel

      totally agree basically 100% However, I've been working on my senior film and we have a lot of stopmo elements, frame-by-frame high-res CRISPY images and I've been running some select shots through RIFE using Flowframes and honestly it's a godsend to avoid reshoots and get a selection of smoother frames(heavily adjusted manually in AE using time remapping for the right timing)

    28. Stormlord

      Just a toodly point, but reaching the intended audience probably isn't helped by shouting 'WE DON'T NEED 60FPS ANIMATIONS' because the same crowd is the one who has been shouted by games companies the exact same sentence, but going from 30->60fps the games are hugely improved. You might now say - 'but those two are completely different areas and have barely anything in common' and I say yes, but the sentences are the same and a subconscious link is formed. You've already made up your mind once, when you re-hear the phrase you'll instantly fall back on the earlier judgement and you put yourself clean against the whole 'remaining at 24fps' idea just by association.

    29. Thunderkrux

      I see your points and I kinda agree that gamers care way too much about frame rates. In animation, I like the lower frame rates, and I was never really able to put into words why, but you did it for me I guess. In gaming, I do care about frame rate to an extent, but only for the reason that I am in control of something within the game usually a character, I need to have a smooth framerate so I can lead shots better, or accurately time a jump, or just to know that I didn't turn too far to the left or for the most part so my immersion isn't broken. Like if I'm watching an animated show and suddenly it goes from 24 fps, then drops to 2 fps when it doesn't make sense, I'm gonna think there's something wrong with the copy I have or with the stream I'm watching. When gaming I need to be consistent, and to be fair, that's all I need. having the max amount of frames possible isn't everything.

    30. Killer Queen

      As a gamer im with this artsist dude

    31. Alex și mai multe

      im a gamer and i still consider that the ''enhancing'' animations thingy is like putting a lot of salt in a food thinking that itl make it taste better .-. it doesnt make it better if the food is allready perfect

    32. Djmini Yt

      I agree with every thing he says here bc I'm a small animator myself lol

    33. Zer0 Pyr0

      Ironically this video now has 5 million views.

    34. Kemiu

      I remember watching Sr Pelo's Spooky Month in 60 FPS and original is in like 3 or 4 FPS. Watching them speak or doing spooky dance was really weird, it was looking too smooth. And I can't believe that I said it...

    42. JoshActive

      I’ve been waiting for someone to cover this 😤

    43. danur rahmajati

      The last one exactly what will happen in the future if we too depending on computer AI. Even though some companies likes google, Microsoft, nvidia ... make agreement to not make an ai that can ruin humans lives, but not all companies get the invitation.

    44. FrazzledMangoMusic

      idc i just think it looks better :)

    45. Aries

      this came out the day after my birth day

    46. Michael Costello

      into the spiderverse is a great example of this If I'm not mistaken, the movie was shot (animated) with different fps and different held frames; and it is one of my favorite movies of all time

    47. fPlobs

      S o o n

    48. Mithril

      Honestly keep adding the "[4K 60FPS]" in the name of the videos just to spite the KGup algorithm and get you the credit you deserve

    56. Leg Eater

      I'm a gamer and sort of an artist/animator and I hate these videos, they make things looks so weird

    57. Archie

      11:51 no it was more of a darkslide on my brain stem

      Why do i care about artistic intent

      Did you notice: the scene where the robot breaks through the wall was interpolated

    63. Mitchel Thinks Trev is Cool


    64. Follow another haynade

      U are just lazy to draw extra 36 frames

      1. 049

        @mGoat agreed, this guy missed the point so much he could be a stormtrooper

      2. mGoat

        You’re completely missing the point

    65. leo bertillot

      Excellent, I just discovered your channel, I really like how you animated your character, keep it up

    66. Bread Milk

      Also ever since I saw this vid a bit ago ive been able to see interpolation way more often and noticing how bad it is now

    67. Apex Gale

      I've always hated it when people give that Naruto vs. Pain fight so much shit. Like of course it's gonna look like shit on a still frame, the entire point of smear frames and squash/stretch is to simulate motion. If you recorded someone getting slapped, then slowed it down and paused it, you'd literally see vibrations and muscle/skin contort and stretch. It's fine to say you thought it looked silly, it's another thing to say it's bad animation

    68. Lluc Torreguitart

    69. Booty Bandit

      Good video Ew jojo

      No one: Galaxy brain child: THIS ANIME LOOKS SO MUCH BETTER AT 60 FPS

    72. Mel Moore

      normal anime punch: HEEYA good punch 'better' anime punch: *light slap* meh

    73. Juan Cruz Castaño

      NetherRealm wanted to make the fatalities and fatal blows 30 fps to make them look more cinematic. Gamers: we are going to harass you nonstop til' you give us an option to make them 60 fps :)

    74. Andrew Fortier

      Waiting for someone to increase the fps in this

    75. Mitchel Turner

      Ok like yea the ai isnt good and different frame rates can be used artistically but honestly these days even 60 looks like a slide show and yes smoother animation is better like he said when the artist intends it, honestly i cant enjoy shows or movies anymore because of the fact that i can count every individual frame, I see this 24 fps thing as a snobby traditionalist tactic, its like when musicians say "this is boring its not even in 7/8 with polyrythms and 12 note chords" i made every single film in my film class in 60 fps and the teacher called me out for it every time while the entire class complimented me on how smooth it was, if you like 24 fps thats fine but i know tons of people who dont like it but say "oh but all of these great film makers used it" and its like no you just want to render to not take as long

    76. Joe Kainrad

      This is basically the same thing as when clients put a shitty Instagram filter over professionally edited photos. It pains me so much.

    77. YO TENGO MAN

      Idc I just think it looks better :)

      1. Random

        That's it I'm getting me mallet

    78. Kaleb Vaitkevicius

      13:28 ok im sorry but i still think washing your car with a jackhammer looks pretty nice

    79. Rismosch

      This video undermines how impressive that AI actually is. Generating new information isn't trivial and some examples do look pretty good. But you are missing one fundamental point: It's just a tool. Sure if you have no intent and don't know how to use it, the result often looks worse. But if you know how and when to use it, it's actually pretty amazing. Being mad at this AI is like being mad at a hammer.

      the irony. he hit 5million views on this vid

    88. Nantorias

      I'm a gamer...But I am also a game designer. And nearing the end of my 5 year long course I have opened my eyes to EVERY LITTLE FUCKING DETAIL AND MISTAKE I CAN'T PLAY GAMES NORMALLY AGAIN! I tried learning animation and wanted to become a 3D animator. Alas, my lectuerer at the time dropped a big fucking book of the priniciples of animation on my desk and told me to read through it and write about it. I no longer wanted to become an animator. Basically, what I am saying in a roundabout way is, I am a gamer and I don't think 60fps animations is a must have in all animations. There are games that function REALLY WELL and uses the principles of animation to their advantage. If you were to slap on 60k frames on fucking z-fighters it would probably lose a good chunk of players.

    89. Naughty Goose

      Not to mention... 'Smart' TVs have been doing this for half a decade or more. Like you said, great for live sports, but it's usually on by default and I turn that crap off straight away. I don't want everything I watch to be a juddering, inconsistent mess!

    90. Logan Lee

      It's ironic how a 24fps converted to 60fps actually feels slower than the original.

      1. Random

        It's basically just making the animation slower by adding more frames, that's why the ai is usually used for sports to do slow mo's

    91. Dan Opris

      Hey nice video and I see your point but who cares in what fps people watch a story? Uuuu iPhone or Samsung? who cares? choose the one that you like more and go home. Remember when the stories had 0 fps? Fucking "text". This video changed my mood not my view on the topic.

    92. heroinpenguin666

      I'm a gamer and I love more frames in my games and sports broadcasts, but when it comes to animation I know old school is prettier and appreciate older animation that was all done by hand very much.

    93. Ossian Wengeler

      9:24 thats nothing compedre to how much i put on my PAZTA!!

    94. im thatperson

      no joke my sibling came in the room at the very in and went "woah! ItS sO smOOTH."

    95. Knoxlock

      I guess there's some valid criticism, but this video is basically about a tool that makes your art more enjoyable to a different audience. I don't get it. Either you obsess over your animation to an unhealthy point where you are the only one who can do what you do, or you are running some form of damage control because you're afraid that people will start to demand animations to be in 60 FPS. Reminds me of the Ubisoft representative who came out and said that a game feels more "cinematic" in 30 FPS that it does in 60. I genuinely can't see why you are pissed at an opportunity for more people to enjoy your and others art. I feel you might be as proprietary as Disney or Nintendo with your work.

      1. Knoxlock

        @LunorZ Agreed. That's why i mentioned that he had some valid criticism, but when such hate evolves to the point where an artist figuratively/indirectly says: "No, you may only enjoy the art in the way I intended it to be enjoyed" it becomes a tad bit ridiculous.

      2. Knoxlock

        @Dario Flores Since those changes aren't classified as fair use, there should be no problem claiming videos or "ai-generated"-versions of your animations and if people start to complain you may actually realize there is a market for those kinds of animation and a gateway for the audience who enjoys animations best when they're in 60 fps.

      3. Dario Flores

        thats not the main problem, the REAL problem is the people taking already made work that took time and dedication and slapping it into the program and posting it on youtube for free views.

      4. LunorZ

        He says 1) AI doesn't understand the principals 2)That makes it jerkier and unnatural 3) it makes the timing worse and makes the images all blurry But... he does hate it TOO much

    96. Bruh Man

      Cry about it

      1. -ABIC-


    97. Angelo Hjulskov

      In my film class, we learn why is commonly used 24 FPS in a lot of movies that are not animated, because giving it more starts to feel unrealistic, and if it’s an action movie you start to see the fake parts of the action and it ruins your experience. That’s why 60 fps is commonly used now in video games intended for it. The majority of action games where you move the camera clearly benefits from it, same for some fighting games where the “meta people” dedicates a lot of time for counting the FPS hit box counting, that’s what makes certain characters beginner friendly than others.
