Background in 2D
3D animation often makes use of 2D backgrounds, and that’s because a drawing of a skyline is easier to design than an entire city. People aren’t likely to focus that much on afar objects and with the right techniques the combination can look seamless.
Fitting them together
2D animation often does the inverse, animating complex objects in 3D and then working on them to make them fit the look of the project. Moving a 3D model is easier than animating it every single frame, and when done right it saves both money and time.
2D animation often relies on 3D effects for a variety of reasons. Whether it is for efficiency or to add extra depth, the combination has proved to be a consistent winner. And if you pay close attention you’ll be able to see it in many day to day cartoons.
