I’ve always been fascinated by movie production, especially special effects and animation. And when it comes to animated movies, the studio which stands above all others is Pixar, the original pioneers of 3D rendered animated films and creators of some of the most beloved family films of the past few decades.
What many people don’t realise though is how in order to produce these films with ever-improving graphics, the studio needed to invent their own 3D production software along the way.
The company relies just as much on coders as it does on artists.
This video here gives a wonderful summary of their their animation software and systems have evolved over the years, up to where they now were used to recreate the accurate finger movements of a Jazz pianist in their latest film, Soul.
Well worth a watch if you are interested in how such creative works and made.
