Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... its an ongoing point in reviews of anime that incorporate CGI how seamlessly the CGI and drawn anime fit together (though I don't always catch the problem - I recently read Scrapped Princess being held up as an example of horrible composition of CGI into an anime, and I quite enjoyed it).

I've never seen a concern with which cels of the drawn anime were drawn by hand on the computer and which were drawn by hand the old fashioned way ... that is, whether the pen strokes on an electronic tablet were used to drive a drawing program or whether a cel was drawn in ink and then scanned into the computer. And the majority of frames will be drawn on the computer in any event - even if the key animator is drawing in ink with the cel being scanned in, the inbetweeners will be drawing on the computer.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
