More Than 50 Fall TV Series Created With Autodesk VFX Software
• FuseFX used 3ds Max for the 3D animation on their 10-15 active television shows in production -- creating particle systems, sensory visualizations, CG trains and animals as well as storm systems and set extensions on shows as varied as "Criminal Minds," "Glee," "The Good Wife," "Hung," "Luck," and "Alphas."
• LOOK Effects relied on Maya software for two series this season: "Bones" and "The Finder."
• Level 3 used Autodesk creative finishing software (Flame and Smoke for Mac) for 3D visual effects, editorial finishing, look development and color grading on fifty shows, including: "Alphas," "Castle," "Bones," "CSI: NY," "Drop Dead Diva," "Fringe," "House," "The Office," "The Simpsons" and "Weeds."
• Spin Pro used Maya and Autodesk Inferno software for two effects-heavy mini-series, "The Borgias" and "Titanic."
Commenting on this season's line-up, Marc Petit said, "We're pleased that artists apply Autodesk tools to help solve so many of the complex VFX challenges they face week after week in some of the most impressive programming currently on home screens."
