Is AI used to roto classed at cheating
If you wanted to make a quick roto reel online and used a third party software that used AI to help would this be classed at cheating?
Reason i ask is because i joked to my friend that using this new method could saves hours of pointless time doing roto and you could make a reel in 20mins lol and i friend of mine that its cheating. I explained yeah i know AE and MochaPro has elements that allows for jobs to be done quicker for roto,,tracks or removes and to generally showcase and help to build towards a reel, They still would be classed as "cheating" as a reel.
I do get pressing one button and then saying your a artist is cheating well fooling yourself but i see technology, programs, software, graphic power and even AI in general is processing things quicker and easier and this is how things are moving for for us in the future. So what actually is classed as cheating if you make something quick while using what you have at your disposal at hand . I am not talking about stealing which is a different thing all together my discussion is workload and speed combined to produce the same level of work to save hours,
I know Hitfilm improves assets and effects use to make things quicker. I know that the motion lock can track through a shot of 300frames or so in under a 60seconds. I could use that and track things here and there and make a tracking showreel but everyone then go you used that? Na man that's cheating as you never keyframed every point lol
What do you guys think? I will tag people in as you believe you guys thoughts hold value and i love to hear what you have to say about the present and where we are going future Visual effects wise.
I Saw this for example which made me create this Discussion based from the following:
