Description:


    This presentation illustrates the ILM Digital Technology Group’s latest groundbreaking developments. The in-house tools were used by ILM’s many digital artists in the four major summer releases of 2001: “Pearl Harbor,” “The Mummy Returns,” “Al,” and “Jurassic Park III.” The tools include: rigid body dynamics for plane crashes and advanced smoke simulation (“Pearl Harbor”); advancements in motion capture technology (“The Mummy Returns,” “Pearl Harbor”); new advances in flesh simulation and creature dynamics (“Jurassic Park III”); and virtual set technology developed for real-time, on-set visualization (“AI”).
