The Changes of CG Technology since “THE RESCURES”

The Rescuers, an American animated adventure film which was produced by Walt Disney Productions and released by Buena Vista Distribution in 1977. It was the 23rd film of the Walt Disney Animated Classic series. The story of the film was based on two mice which were named as jittery janitor Bernard (Bob Newhart) and his co- agent, the elegant Miss Bianca (Eva Gabor) who were set out to rescue Penny (Michelle Stacy), an orphan girl who held in prisoner in Devil’s Bayou.
Through the film, the Disney animator’s team had done a really good job which was so much better than the production of “The Jungle Book”. Ken Anderson, who was the leader of the designer team, was employing rough artistic edges in contrast. So that the round animals such as Dumbo seen in productions in the previous film. In this film, they used the same law to make the animals design to make it little bit realistic than the previous film. The animation of this film was done by Xerography successfully. The animators of Disney team were responsible for every character in this film.
 The backgrounds of the “The Jungle book” were hand-painted with exception of waterfall which was mostly consisting of footage of the Angel Falls. On the other side, the scenery was used in both foreground and bottom to create a notion of depth sometimes. In this film they had done the same things but which was much better. In previous film, Anderson followed one of Reitherman’s trademarks of reusing animation. So that he applied this theory in this film successfully to make the animation better. Milt Kahl, the animator based the movements of the characters on live- action felines that he saw in two Disney production early.
Now, the CGI production has already developed the way of making this kind of animation film. They are using computer to design the characters and animals which are so much realistic to the viewers. Now the animators are using some techniques like multi rigging which made up the multiple pairs of cameras that can separate each element to the background and foreground scene. They also use this technique for the characters without adjusting the relation with other pairs. Through this technique, the appealing look of the movie seems realistic which is visually impossible.
In 1990s, the film lovers were enjoyed this kind of animation film and the film production always tried deliver different type of animation movie to show their improvement and new inventions. That’s why they achieved a big hand from the leading render firms.
No matter Dream Works production team, Disney or Warner Bros. Pictures, there’re huge render farms behind them, which is equipped with the top-level hardware specs. The render farm helps their artists to realize their creation about what they want the movies to be. So is Fox Renderfarm with good render farm software. We are not a production company, instead we are an online rendering service provider, which mean the production companies all over the world can benefit from the rendering services we offer. It is our point to make contributions to the development of CGI.
