Some articles has stated that a lot of the old computer graphics
animation companys now is defunkt, Robert Able, MAGI, Digital Effects,
Information Internationals and Cranston Csuri. One article also
mentioned that it has been layoffs at Pixar. What about Digital
I want to know why the companys now is defunct? Ok, I know that
you always can say "lack of money". But I want to know what technology
they used, hardware and software. Did they have a lot of old expensive
hardware? Did they just made a bankruptcy too get rid of old
equipment and liabilities? What are the emloyes working with
Who is in the business today? What are they producing. Personally
I am sick and tired of all this flying logos, simple image mappings
and all other common tricks whithout any creativity.
I would very much appreciate articles similar to "Paul Heckberts,
Works article" on this topic. We have too learn from the mistakes
also, not only from all this fancy published images.
Did anyone know what the hedgehog said when he step down from
the scrubbing brush? :-) :-)
