Internet and Computer Animation, August 2000

This double issue of Animation World Magazinewill feature a number of special articles. In the Internet animation section we will feature a theoretical look at what might have happened if such animation legends as Tex Avery had the freedom of the Internet at their disposal. Martin "Dr. Toon" Goodman will be sending that one our way. We will also look at how entertainment sites are making ends meet and get a read on the general health of the industry. Plus, we are going to have professionals currently working in the Internet animation field give you tips on the latest equipment and tools that are at your disposal and advice on how to set up your own Flash studio at home. In addition, Jacquie Kubin is going to profile the limitless world of Internet gaming for us too.

In the Computer animation portion we will have a special profile of Mainframe in Vancouver, Canada. Jo Jurgens is going to compare and contrast three animation programs Hash, Sumatra and Maya and judge their ease of use for the working, animating professional. We, of course, will also be featuring news and views straight from SIGGRAPH 2000.

In other coverage we will get an update on the Canadian animation market from Chris Robinson and Andrew Osmond is going to take us on a tour of Britain's summer animation festivals. Just what is coming up to fill Cardiff's gap? Andrew is going to let us know. Glenn Vilppu will be back with his second installment from his new book about sketching on location. Maureen Furniss and Lee Dannacher will join us again as well with "Fresh from the Festivals" and another lively Internet company profile respectively.

Join us then!
