Abstract:


    Dreamworks Pictures film “The Time Machine” presented a number of interesting problems related to creating time-lapse photography using computer animation. I was assigned with the task of making realistic vines creep and grow along the surface of the green house as the main character began to move forward in time. In order to keep such a complicated task manageable, I needed to organize the order in which things were processed to keep things workable as changes were made. The pipeline needed to be designed in such a way so that the maximum amount of processing is taken care of at the earliest stage.
