"Perhaps one of the first uses of the term "Motion Graphics" was by animator John Whitney, who in 1960 founded a company called Motion Graphics Inc." <--- lol niko. motion graphics is not "NEW" term

motion graphics = motion graphic design .. moving graphic design which are seen for example tv program intros. this numedia blaablaa i think motion graphics is hell lot better term than machinima (which is shit) or demoscene. but who cares about name, its a contest nowadays in every side :)

There is people that doesn't like either the 'demoscene' term. But who cares?

Uncle-x: Don't know if you realised but xplsv.tv is much more open now to other king of computer animated graphics art. Not only motiongraphics (which to be honest I find as good as descriptive as the definition of the demoscene), but also lives, 3danims, shorts, visual experiments. As long as the piece was mainly done with a computer (there are levels, of course) it goes in.

unssi your point being? i really don't see what "machinima" has to do with "motion graphics" or "demos"...

trace yah i know that. i should really check out the stuff more often.

(to me atleast) demoscene describes the community, not what the productions are (contentwise). When i'm talking about demos i like to use words such as "demos" & "prods" (when talking to sceners) or "works (of art)" or some really convoluted finnish to describe what "realtime visuals usually accompanied and synchronised to music" is to laymen :-)

maali: i find myself more at ease with your chosen term as opposed to "motiongraphics" :-) Sure CG is 'a bit' broad, but atleast its a term most people are familiar with (unlike motiongraphics or demos)

(i just noticed i went offtopic anyway)
niko: well "machinima" or "demoscene" is in my opinion less descriptive term compared to motion graphics. but i guess motiongraphers didnt want to invent some new word for animation, but find more descriptive word for their stuff. i compare for example you dont call smaller demos <64kb demos but intros. i think we (i mean all people) should be more open for all kind of art, not just watching demos, but not just copying stuff that already exist for example in "motiongraphics" thats why i like xplsv.tv...
