3D Animation in Three Dimensions
(The Rocky Road to the Obvious)

Hugh Murray, IMAX Corporation

That animation created using CG modeling and animation tools is inherently three-dimensional is well known. In the middle to late nineties IMAX Corporation began actively exploring CG animated features as a possible source of economically viable content for its rapidly growing network of stereoscopic IMAX® 3D theatres. The journey from there to the spectacular success of the IMAX® 3D version of The Polar Express is an interesting mix of technical, creative and production challenges. For example 3D animations often have 2D elements and include many sequences that have framing, composition and lens choices that a stereographer would have avoided had 3D been part of the recipe at the outset. And of course the decision to ask for a second set of deliverables from an already stressed production takes nerve. The talk will cover several of these issues and explain why the unique viewing experience enabled by the wide-angle geometry of IMAX® 3D theatres makes it worth all the pain.

Hugh Murray

Hugh Murray is Vice President, Technical Production at IMAX Corporation and for the past 10 years he has worked on most of IMAX Corporation's film productions as a technical expert, particularly in 3D and special effects. Hugh was the instigator and producer, with Steve Hoban, of the computer animated film Cyberworld 3D. Hugh led the team that identified the key technologies for the IMAX DMR® process and was IMAX® Producer on Apollo 13 (with Lorne Orleans), Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones (with Lorne Orleans), Matrix Reloaded, Matrix Revolutions, and the IMAX® 3D version of The Polar Express. He was most recently an Executive Producer on Magnificent Desolation: Walking On The Moon 3D and is currently working on the 3D versions of two animated features for release in 2006.
