1972 3D Computer Graphics Film Created by Ed Catmull of Pixar

Nearly forty years ago, computer science graduate students Ed Catmull, Fred Parke, and Robert Ingebretsen created this film demonstrating the cutting edge in 3D computer graphics. The film includes a 3D animated rendering of Catmull’s hand, a face created by Parke, and fascinating making-of footage. Catmull, an early pioneer of computer graphics, later went on to co-found Pixar Animation Studios.
