Hi, in the past Combustion was available as demo on the Autodesk wesbite, now it is no more available, so I think you can't find it. You can be sure that we'll start to use other compositing software in coming videos, something like Composite and/or Fusion.By:Loreta (not verified)

If Dreamworks open VDB is like any of their other antiquated, clunky in-house software, I'm sure it will be absolute crap. I wouldn't bother.By:Anonymous (not verified)
I've heard of the Tokyo PiPinator, it gives out amazing effects!By:Mr. Elf (not verified)
Someone upstairs says the Gene Deitch T&J's have better looking graphics than the original. I very much disagree! I think the original has much prettier graphics! The G.D. ones, to me anyway, don't have very good looking graphics at all.By:Anonymous (not verified)
Excellent interview. Thanks for that!By:Bryce Hallett (not verified)
That could be done without so much CGI. Just good draftmaship. People love it because it looked like drawings. One hundred One Dalmatians still has more appeal. By the way, Milt Kahl called and asked his Rofer Radcliff's designs back.By:Belafargo (not verified)

Let me know if there are any lessons on CD or DVD on software like ToonBoonPro or Flash JUST FOR 2D animation?
Or is it possible to have a tutor/teacher teach? The instructions accompanying ToonBoom are so widely detouring into areas of no interest to me; too many choices for one simple action; I just want to have a linear lesson from scanning drawings, thru coloring and compositing, laying down music and dialog, to final master on DVD.
Please let me know if such a help exists, thank you!By:Marija (not verified)
It was a brave move for a studio like Disney to step a little outside it's comfort zone and produce a product clearly aimed at a slightly older age group.
I hope this is the first of many, as I'm sure there's a growing audience of DISNEY devotees, of a certain age group, that would be more than happy to visit a cinema ..without the kids!By:
All of the VFX were outsourced to companies in other countries! All for a politically tinged "Diehard"! I hope this particular exploitation makes NO money. It is interesting to see so many good actors and crew commit financial suicide simultanously. The strength of our system lies in the fact that they can do this & fail. I can't imagine a project like this being greenlit in any of the countries that the VFX were farmed out to.By:Gary Duerr (not verified)
welcome back ralph, and thank you for telling it how it is. You are the guy who can put animation on its feet again with creativity.By:Anonymous (not verified)
Wow.... Crappy Cars rip-off cheap-quels... *and* Dane Cook? Can I pre-order my tickets now? I"m sure this is going to be lined up around the block.By:Anonymous (not verified)
