皮克斯第一部短片《A Computer Animated Hand》入选美国国会图书馆保护名录


近日,皮克斯历史上第一款用电脑建模制作的有关人手模型的动画短片《A Computer Animated Hand》被美国国家电影保护局列入了2011年国家电影保护目录中,而且永久保存在美国国会图书馆里。这部短片创作于1972年,其创作者是现任皮克斯总裁 Ed Catmull 和已故犹他大学教授 Fred Parke ,影片中手的模型正是来自 Catmull 的。

以下是官方简述:

A Computer Animated Hand (1972)

Ed Catmull, co-founder of Pixar Animation Studios, renowned for its CGI (computer generated image) animated films, created a program for digitally animating a human hand in 1972 as a graduate student project, one of the earliest examples of 3D computer animation. The one-minute film displays the hand turning, opening and closing, pointing at the viewer, and flexing its fingers, ending with a shot that seemingly travels up inside the hand. In creating the film, which was incorporated into the 1976 film “Futureworld,” Catmull worked out concepts that become the foundation for computer graphics that followed.

大家以前应该见过这部短片,它曾出现在《机器人瓦力》的影音制品中,但是并没有这么完整。有兴趣的读者,就点击观看吧,欣赏那个年代的电脑动画技术。
