Added DiffLines:

* A scene in ''{{Film/Arrival}}'' averts it presumably just [[GratuitousSpecialEffects for the hell of it]]. Amy Adams enters a zero gravity situation with her hair tied up, only for it to come undone and spend the scene billowing around as it would in actual zero gravity.

* Also true to a limited extent in traditional animation. This is why Belle's hair was usually in a ponytail in ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' (though her dress twirls during the ballroom scene), and why flexible objects with elaborate surface patterns (like the flying carpet in ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'') were generally avoided before CGI. In the direct-to-video sequels and the TV series, the carpet's elaborate design was downgraded so it could be drawn without CGI. Compare the [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_YtQFcCXNo6k/TAANptMk7fI/AAAAAAAAFMw/NeOwtWQC06Y/s1600/carpet11.jpg carpet as seen in the feature]] with the [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-FfjJYRc-WlY/T7_FusFjayI/AAAAAAAADQs/MpAj6mp6ktQ/s400/Aladdin_cartoon_magic_carpet_4.jpg direct-to-video/television version]].

** Same with [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Lulu]], who wears a floor-length fur-lined dress with a skirt made of [[TooManyBelts belts]].


Added DiffLines:

** They even managed to realistically make him put his hands in his pockets, something most animators would kill themselves trying to do.

* Films or TV episodes or entire ''series'' would take place in settings whose inhabitants naturally lacked loose garments and billowing hair. For example, being [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory plastic toys]], [[ReBoot computer programs]], [[WesternAnimation/VeggieTales vegetables]], or [[WesternAnimation/ABugsLife ants]].

** In the original ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaRondoOfBlood'' (which has sprite-based graphics), Maria Renard wears a dress and her hair down. In the 2.5D [[VideoGameRemake remake]] in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaTheDraculaXChronicles'', her Ayami Kojima redesign features pants and a ponytail, presumably because of this trope.

* In ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', their main flow-related challenge was rendering heavy cloths such as velvet and wool in such a way that they still billow and swirl with appropriate grace. Elsa's glorious dress of ice flows quite well, especially with the giant trailing translucent snowflake cape behind her. Both Elsa and Anna wear their hair in braids, which also required some new programs on the part of the animators -- namely, making braids that were clearly composed of three interwoven strands, instead of braids that are just lengthened, tactile blocks of hair (like Fiona or [[WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon Astrid.]])

The only way they could do the scene without having the model break was to cheat and have her braid phase ''through'' Elsa's arm instead of over it. The animators did a good job of making it barely noticeable, and those that did notice seemed to agree it was WorthIt.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' CG theatrical film and animated series, the Jedi all wear gauntlets so the animators don't have to animate the flowing sleeves seen in the live-action movies. The Jedi robes also have no sleeves and are basically hooded cloaks. Finally, their hair looks like chiseled rock. Especially visible on Obi-Wan, whose rock beard has such a sharp edge to it he might be able [[http://www.starwars.com/img/kids/do/draw/f20100505/final.jpg to kill someone by chin-butting them.]] The animators thought that it was very difficult animating Ventress with her skirt on during fight scenes. Although as the series progresses new models for the characters have been introduced that do have flowing hair and clothes.

* In ''WesternAnimationLuxoJr'', it was mentioned in the commentary that animating the CORD bouncing up and down was the hardest thing to animate in the entire short. John Lasseter had to animate each jump by hand, and in his own words, "...it was ''painful''."
