Description:


    For Rhythm & Hues, an animation house utilizing both proprietary and commercial software packages, the ability to freely exchange useful data between applications is essential. We model in our custom AND software, animate in Maya or Voodoo,light in Houdini, and render with our custom WREN, or any other combination depending on production needs. “SpiderWeb” is a charming R&D byproduct, with variations modeled in AND, animated in Maya, and passed to Houdini through“streams.“ Versions were then rendered as polygons or subdivided surfaces with both vMantra and RenderMan. The options become quite liberating in a modular pipeline.
