The Merger

Live-action visual effects:

... and your favorite CG animated feature

There's not really much of a difference anymore.

Sure, you have some live-action elements and a lot of rotoscope ... oops ... MOCAP, but other than that? Same software packages, same computers, same digital talent working AT the computers.

More and more, live-action tentpoles and glossy, big-budget animated features are growing together. Any modern sci-fi or fantasy feature you care to name is a close cousin of the product of Pixar, Blue Sky, DreamWorks Animation or the Walt Disney Animation Studios.

The are "live action" in name, but not in reality.
