Screen: 2D animation dominates
In terms of screen performance, 2D animation output accounts for 64% of the total, 3D animation accounts for 35%, and stop motion animation is still a niche, accounting for only 1%.
From the perspective of production, although the cost of 3D animation production is low and it can achieve visual effects that cannot be achieved in 2D, the 3D animation production technology is not yet fully mature and it cannot replace the dominant position of 2D animation for many years in the short term.

The duration of 15 to 25 minutes can better describe the performance of the plot, and often the plot of this type of plot, story strong, easier to inspire the passion of users, is the mainstream product of the animation drama market.
For the 5 to 15 minutes and 5 minutes of instant noodles, the storyline is less story-like. The repertoires set for this type of time are mostly everyday and hilarious subjects, and the plot is weak. The user's chase rhythm is not stable. , so the least production.

Novel adaptation IP accounted for 21% of the total, and game adaptation IP accounted for 12% of the total.
Compared to original IPs with long production cycles and uncertain market response, IP adaptation has a natural fan base and development advantages. However, cartoon contrasting novels and games are adapted from different sources due to their adaptability and low trial and error. Popular choice.
It is worth noting that the "Fiction Adaptation" mentioned here mainly refers to network literature. Different from the popular light novel adaptation in Japan's animation industry, the field of light novels in China has not yet matured. There are a large number of works for fans, and in the field of web writing, the large IP reserves that can be tapped and edited are relatively rich.
In fact, last year's explosive animation IP full-time master adapted from the Internet writer Butterfly Blue serial video of the same name in the starting point of Chinese e-sport novel.
