References and Quality[edit]

I moved this material from computer animation because it is almost entirely unsourced and anyone's guess if any of it is correct. I will be cleaning up that article, but I do not plan to check all the history now, but please do correct it if you have references. History2007 (talk) 21:56, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Why does the article claim Tron (1982) was a commercial failure? The wiki Tron article claims it was a "moderate success?" 9 February 2012 — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:55, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, this article is full of errors. It is a cartoon animation of a good article... I am planning to fix it during 2012 sometime, maybe. But I will have to fix the main animation article itself first. History2007 (talk) 15:57, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Why is John Whitney, nor none of his works, listed on this page? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:46, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

I think you mean John Whitney (animator) and he deserves a mention, of course. History2007 (talk) 23:54, 24 April 2012 (UTC)


Is this article a joke?
"3D animation software in the 2000s" featuring only Blender, Poser & Pointstream Software? Really?... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:38, 14 October 2013 (UTC)

The exhibition Cybernetic Serendipity was not in New York exhibited[edit]

Cybernetic Serendipity : "..and shown in exhibitions in London and New York"

Hello - Cybernetic Serendipity was not exhibited in New York. This is one of the errors in many secondary sources. I correct this in the next few days.--Maxim Pouska (talk) 11:32, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Hello, I corrected it just now.--Maxim Pouska (talk) 15:59, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

William Fetter - the headline and the name of the Labs are wrong[edit]

Hello. What is this? Lawrence Livermore - In 1960, William Fetter was a graphic designer for Boeing at Lawrence Livermore Labs,

It looks like the headline and the name of the Labs are wrong. That is not a lab at Boeing. William Fetter worked at Boeing in Wichita the first years. I correct the text.--Maxim Pouska (talk) 05:30, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

PS a link: — Preceding unsigned comment added by Maxim Pouska (talkcontribs) 05:35, 20 August 2015 (UTC) Why Fetter in this text is called Bill and not William is just something or was his nick at Boeing.--Maxim Pouska (talk) 05:46, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

Would this be suitable for the article? CGI used in movies[edit]

I wrote most of this for the Peter Cushing article. And wondered why content of this type is not in this CGI article. Or about the effects used in many other specific movies. Is there another CGI article that covers that?

For the 2016 movie Star Wars Rogue One, CGI and digitally-repurposed-archive footage[19][20] were used to insert Peter Cushing's likeness from the original movie over the body of actor Guy Henry.[21] Henry provided the on-set capture and voice work with the reference material augmented and mapped over his performance like a digital-body mask. Cushing's estate owners were heavily involved with the creation which took place over twenty years after his death.[22] This extensive use of CGI to "resurrect" an actor who had died decades ago created a great deal of controversy about the ethics of doing so.[23] Joyce Broughton, Cushing’s former secretary, had approved recreating Cushing in the film. After attending the London premiere, she was reportedly "taken aback" and "dazzled" with the effect of seeing Cushing on screen again.[24] Peter K Burian (talk) 03:03, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
