Physical Realism is Not Guaranteed

Last but not least, using conventional keyframing techniques, realism depends solely upon the skills of the animator. Unless the animator is highly skilled, poor visual results may obtain. In particular, since conventional geometric models possess no mechanical properties, the physical correctness of the resulting motion is not guaranteed, nor will the animated figures respond to forces in a realistic manner.
