As you maybe know, I work mainly on animated features. I often participate to discussions between productions and RnD about technical challenges of a coming or current project, specially on lighting part.
There is many situations where peoples argue how deep compo is "canon" now and how it will change the face of the CGI... I'm often arguing deep compo is not a "tiny" feature and, while it can be useful "sometime", it create more troubles than it solve in practice, specially if its use is generalized (and on a animated feature you often need to "over-generalize" uses). Doing so, I'm facing to a lot of "What? But fxguide state a lot of animation studios use it! Dreamworks, Disney, etc...".
I will not argue on the fact the projects I have to deal with are not running in such studios. I will not even argue about the actual budget compared to big production ones. I will simply quote something fxguide report and pray the various supervisors I have the opportunity to worked with will take this in consideration.
