Visual Computing

We strive to improve Disney’s production pipelines and creative processes, expanding the designer’s toolbox in terms of rendering, animation, capture, stylization, interaction, and efficiency. Our technology allows designers to tell their story. We also develop algorithms to better understand our audiences and create new modes of interaction.
