  1. When I saw the leaks, it looked like the altered Mane 6 designs were being to be for specials made by Boulder Media. Since we got a second of footage for Rainbow Road Trip, it looks like that's not the case, and that the altered Mane 6 is going to indeed be for G5. How do you feel about that? Are you fine with an alternate Mane 6 for G5, or do you think it should have a brand new main cast?
  2. Well one thing is certain, had the original show stuff still been around by now, the last few seasons would've been a whole lot better. The fact that they left and got replaced by less talented staff killed the rest of the show's potential. Ever since, quality episodes have been few and far in between.

    G5 Hopes and Worries

    Why not? If each generation was in the same world with slightly different tweaks then it'd get boring. It's nice for each gen to be new and fresh.
  4. Hopefully this is the right forum for this thread. Let's say you wanted to form your own Pony animation studio, like Jan Animations, Silly Filly Studios, and Duo Cartoonist, and wanted to find whatever tools to use, on top of having personnel to use them (such as writers, voice actors, animators, artists, compositors, modelers, editors, composers, etc). What tools would they be? My production arsenal would consist of these. Final Draft - Script writing Storyboard Pro - Storyboards/animatics TVPaint - 2d frame-by-frame animation Cacani - Automated inbetweening Toon Boom Harmony Premium - Coloring and other features Corel Painter - 2d background painting Photoshop - Background adjustments, among other functions After Effects - 2d compositing Nuke - 3d compositing Autodesk Maya - 3d animation and rigging Modo - Modelling and 3d environments Zbrush - Sculpting Houdini - 3d special fx Renderman, Arnold, Mental Ray, Mantra, etc - Rendering Premiere, Avid Media Composer, and Davinci Resolve - Video editing Audition - Editing sound fx and voiceovers Cubase, Pro Tools, and Digital Performer - Music Flix, Toon Boom Producer, and Shotgun - Production tracking

    Rate song, then post another!

    Quite nice really. 7/10
  6. Which of these genres do you think have the most appeal and popularity by the general audience? Personally, I'm going to go with action/adventure. All of the most popular franchises fall into action/adventure, many of which are fantasy, science fiction, and superhero. Action/adventure to me has the most complex story structures, and you can put any of the other genres in them (granted, you can do the same with the other genres, but they have a more specific plot structure).

    General Media Which genre has the most appeal?

    Not to mention tons of fantasy and sci fi films. Not really. Horror relies and fear and shock, while thriller relies on suspense and twists-and-turns.

    General Media Which genre has the most appeal?

    That depends though. Not everyone's going to be into ultraviolent stuff like Rambo or The Raid.
  9. After seeing Alita: Battle Angel, I just thought of something. Wouldn't it be cool if James Cameron became G5's Lauren Faust and created the show's characters and world? The guy is well known for creating very memorable female lead characters. Just imagine what a main cast designed by him would be like, chances are that they'd be even more compelling than the G4 Mane 6. Would be also cool if he wrote the upcoming prequel film.

    Idea: James Cameron as G5's showrunner

    I still personally like the idea of him making his own interpretation of the Mane 6. Maybe it could be a joint project with him and someone like Genndy.

    What if the g5 everyone expects isn't?

    While G5 is airing, would be nice there being a G4.5 about the children of the Mane 6, particularly Kilala's next gen characters.

    Idea: James Cameron as G5's showrunner

    I'd be down for him turning it into a young-adult franchise, or at least making it create a Disney grade appeal..

    Season 9 CONFIRMED to be the last season.

    Technically, G4 was a reboot of G1-G3, so it's not like it's going to have the exact same setting. Sure, the characters may be just l slightly different in comparison to previous gens (for example, Sunburst was actually an earth pony in G1). There's been lots of talk that G5's world will have a cosmology inspired by Norse mythology.

    New Movie Planned for 2021

    You can thank all the veteran writers jumping ship early. If we still had them then the past few seasons would've been way better, but instead here we are.
  15. I've always wondered of what the name of the species of Captain Celaeno and her crew. A lot of people could just call them parrots, but I think I'd prefer to call them harpies. I believe there are more bird types for harpies than just parrots. What do you guys think?
  16. I know I made a thread about Opentoonz, but this one applies to all free software. Not only is there Opentoonz for 2d animation, but also Krita for backgrounds, Blender for 3d graphics, Fusion (the free version) and Natron for compositing, and Storyboarder for storyboards/animatics. Using all these programs together, you could make something truly remarkable. I know Blender has been used numerous times by the fandom, but those were for purely 3d animations. It could also be used for accompanying your 2d animations in OT. These programs would be perfect for animators who are on a budget.

    Could G5 be as big as G4?

    I had another thought. Remember Mighty Morphin Power Rangers back in the 90s? Back then it was extremely popular. There are still new Power Rangers shows coming out, but none of them have anywhere near the same amount of popularity as the first series. I'm hopeful that MLP won't suffer the same fate, but who knows.

    Could G5 be as big as G4?

    Way I see it, G5 will bring in new fans before they even got into MLP prior.
  21. We all know the current show created the Brony fandom. Question is, what would G5 need to do to keep fans interested in the franchise? Also, what would generations after need to do to still keep fans invested? Hopefully Hasbro has realized that the MLP franchise has finally found its identity, same for GI Joe with A Real American Hero. Granted, each show doesn't have to have the same setting and main cast, it can still be different, yet equally interesting for the audience.

    Discord in G5?

    Don't count on it. This is going to be set in a different universe after all.

    G5's art style

    For quite some time, there has been a leak mentioning that the show will have a "fresh/contemporary look" and "compliment Mane 6 (whatever those characters will be)", and showed pictures of various cartoons. However, among them were Gravity Falls and Star vs the Forces of Evil. This begs me the question, what will G5's art style be like? Will it have the "CalArts style" that many cartoons are using nowadays, or a Tumblr-esque art style? If so, then it will be a major step backward from G4's art style and will lack the expressiveness of the characters that it had. I really hope that the art style will be more appealing and timeless, and can inspire many more art styles.

    G5's art style

    Yeah, but some of them look way to cartoony to be used.
  25. vgmaster9

    G5's art style

    I've seen them, and there is no established final design yet.
