I see the clipping in the first one but what’s the second one
i actually dont see the clipping in the first one?? but the second one elsa’s braid phases right through her arm when she brings it forward. not over her shoulder. literally through her arm
First one is his thumb clipping through her side.
They can give their boobs jiggle physics but they can’t stop and entire braid from phasing through an arm

Okay Tumblr, I see that this gif has caused a little bit of commotion by pointing out that Elsa’s braid “phases” or “clips” through her arm. Some people say that this is lazy while other’s justify it. However technical people get they ignore, from the posts I have seen anyway, addressing the possible reasons why the animators at Disney let this to the final cut of the movie.
Okay, the “phasing” or “clipping” of the hair is intentional. It wasn’t a mistake. Nor was it a product of lazy animators and directors. When looking at things like this you need to think of animation as a magic trick. It’s not real.
The first clue is how they position her shoulders when it happened:
Right before the dirty deed is done, Elsa is turned so that we can’t see the her hair flow through her shoulder while shooting arrows into the sunset.
The exact frame that her hair is in view, it has already performed its trick.
See? That’s the first clue.
The second clue is a bit more in depth and requires to look at the flow of animation and color closely.
We start out with:
Her head is just off center of the screen and is really bright compared to everything else. Naturally drawing our eyes to that spot.
Her hair bounces up making sure that our eyes focus on Elsa face and in the next few frames, her hands.
The hair is intentionally dropped behind the arm so our eyes don’t follow it and we REALLY focus on her face. Because right now it is the most important thing on the screen.
I wish I could style my hair this easily.
Here we are again! Take note that we have been basically following her left hand in our even if we can’t see it. It derives most of the focused motion in the shot.
Elsa’s left hand moves behind her head leading our focus back to her face. Having her also open her eyes at the same time also makes us want to look at her face and away from the trick that is happening.
And the magic trick is over. It is also important to note how her head has slowed down significantly and Elsa’s eyes lead our focus to her hand which stretches out to transition us to the next shot.
All in all, this must have been a carefully laid out shot that to be able not only look excellent but draw our notice away from a little trick/shortcut, and in the end made it a more powerful lead into the next shot.
I took my time to break this down because knowing the reason why Elsa is animated this way will give us a greater appreciation of the work. Because it really is fantastic.
Animation is a magic trick. Being the person who points out the misdirection doesn’t make you superior or smart. You just ruin the magic for everyone. Teaching the person the illusion shows respect and could lead to greater magic in the future.
So, a person is an asshole for noticing this? For merely admitting that your movie isn’t perfect? You’re equivalence doesn’t match up. Person’s calling out in an audience to a magician are being rude at a performance people paid to see. This is not a movie theatre. This is the internet, and people like catching these “goofs”, like finding easter eggs on a dvd. IMDB even has a section for it on a movie’s page.
The first thing you need to know about Paixbourg is that it is freezing. The small city lay in the deep ice, unprotected by mountains. The buildings of downtrodden, harsh wood were ever coated in frost, and even once inside by a fire, it was unadvisable to walk around without long-sleeves and fur.
The King of Paixbourg dispatched several agents, with Odysseus heading the charge. Odysseus had traveled to every corner of both kingdoms. And now, we were in a narrow, two-story house, its interior generously furnished with homely paintings and ice-fishing ornaments. The search had turned out to be childsplay. The hard part came now. With the Commander in charge, I knew anything could be done in time, but without her, nothing seemed certain.
“Stop your fussing, Your Majesty.” said Damian, as we heard footsteps. “You practically ooze love and good will. We’ll be fine.”
The grand-daughter came down the stairs first, her mouth set hard. Then came the grandfather. Though he stood straight, his movements were slow, and he carefully gripped the rail. He wore a thick, tweed-based suit, and a navy, knitted blanket had been draped around his shoulders. When he reached the floor, I held out my hand.
“It’s a pleasure, Mr. Garvin.” I said. “We just-“
“At least let him sit down first.” Mary said, sharply.
There was an awkward moment, where everyone remembered that I was a prince.
“Of course.” I said, bowing my head. “My apologies.”
Garvin took the big armchair by the fire, and Mary instantly took the couch seat closest to him, leaving us to stand on ceremony.
“Sir, we are here on behalf of our brother.” I said. “Young Flavian-“
“The murderer.” said Mary. “We know him well enough.”
“The business was indeed tragic-“
“The murder, yes it was.”
“-and he’s never stopped punishing himself for it. He believed himself to be stopping the man who was shooting at him.”
“How long would it have taken him to lift the lid?” asked Mary.
“Long enough to get shot.” said Dumont.
“And why was he being shot at again?” said Mary. “Oh, yes. Because he was plundering the ship.”
“He’s not a black heart!” Fred pleaded. “He acted instinctually to save himself!”
“You’re just repeating yourselves now.” said Mary. “The door’s hungry. You may feed it-“
“Enough.” said Mr. Garvin. “No, Mary, you’ve had your say. Now let me have mine.”
He put his hands on the arms of his chair, and slowly pushed himself up. He approached me, barely lifting his feet, and met my eyes.
“I’ve hated that pirate for a long time.” he said, quietly. “All I could remember was William lying in a puddle of his own urine and blood, as if he was somehow lesser than the thing that had slaughtered him…but now the chemicals of youth have been drained from me, and I can recognize a scared boy when I see one.”
My stomach swelled, and I nodded. There was a pause.
“Right, then!” blurted Jacek. “Lets fucking do it!”
UGH! I JUST got this!
The rings represent the Hunger Games, and the third book has none because there IS none in that book, and Katniss is fully fulfilling her role as the Mockingjay.
