I guess it depends upon how you define work. I doubt making halfway convincing CGI is very easy, either. It has the rep for being easier simply because it's done in a computer, but is it? Maybe if you know what you're doing, but if push comes to shove I'd have an easier time doing stop motion because it's a fairly straight forward concept to understand. How would I go about creating CGI? Is work only measured in how long something has to take and how many times you have to stand up? The work behind modern FX artists don't get the credit they're do for the tools they use, as far as I'm concerned. That said, I also prefer practical effects. But nostalgia likely plays a significant part in that being the age I am.
