Description:


    Pacific Data Images provided 3D animation and visual effects for a recent commercial in which a car pops the corn in a cornfield as it zips along a rural road. PDI programmers developed a new particle animation system to create a realistic-looking explosion of popcorn. Other techniques employed on this spot included particle animation, computer graphics corn and husks, matte painting, and compositing.
