Massive Software Expands Management Team
Massive Prime 2.0 is currently available. Massive Jet is expected to ship in early 2006. As Massive Software continues to scale for growth, the company is recruiting worldwide resellers and expects a number of forthcoming announcements relating to its sales and educational channel development.
Springing into existence to help artists solve real-world production needs on THE LORD OF THE RINGS films, Massive Software (www.massivesoftware.com) is the leading developer of artificial intelligence-based 3D animation systems, and the only proven commercial system for feature film. Massive was founded when Stephen Regelous programmed a unique piece of software for director Peter Jackson to make creation of complicated visual effects scenes involving hundreds of thousands of digital characters a practical reality.
Now a standalone, commercially available product, Massive is used by leading digital production and effects studios, including Weta Digital, The Mill, Animal Logic, Rhythm & Hues and Digital Domain. In 2004, Massive was honored with a Scientific and Engineering Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and with a Technical Innovation Award at the 3D Awards in Copenhagen.
