The main job of the animation director isLayout,Original pictureTo fix[Note 2]So, it is to unify the quality of the design and movement of the story in charge.So to speak, the person in charge of each drawing is an animator with appropriate skill and experience.If you want to modify only the layout, click "Layout drawing director(Layout animation director) ", if you want to modify only the original image,"Original drawing director(Original animation director) "may be written.

Due to the time constraints mentioned above, only the original image with quality problems will be corrected.Specifically, it corrects a pattern that deviates from the character design, or corrects an animator's original picture that is not sufficiently skilled.Some animation directors only make corrections, but in some cases they are added as original drawings in the story in charge, and in some cases the animation director himself draws all the original drawings by himself.[Note 3]There is also.

Cuts with no problem in quality are often used without any modification.Even if there is a cut with a problem in quality, it may not be sufficiently corrected due to circumstances such as a short production period.In addition, depending on the animation director, in order to bring out the individuality of an excellent original man, even if there is a slight difference in the pattern, it may not be corrected.

Before the general animation director system became widespread, it was often seen that the animations in the TV series had different patterns such as the character's face for each story with different animation directors.The total drawing director system has reduced the variation in patterns, but on the other hand, the individuality of each drawing director and each animator has been diminished.As a result, there is also the problem that some people with little knowledge who describe it as a collapse of drawing have begun to appear to the extent that the characters are not similar to each other.[Original research?]However, even now, "Crayon Shin-chanThere are also animations that do not have a general animation director.
