Adobe Names Pixar Veteran Guido Quaroni Senior Director of Engineering on 3D & Immersive Team

Tech giant taps animation industry veteran to drive innovation across 3D and immersive tools; ‘Substance & 3D News’ livestream to offer glimpse of upcoming releases on Tuesday, January 28.

Adobe has announced the hire of Guido Quaroni as senior director of engineering on the Adobe 3D & immersive team. A 20-year Pixar veteran, he served as supervising technical director on both Monsters University and Toy Story 3. In 2011 he was appointed vice president of software R&D, where he oversaw the studio graphics and animation software, including the USD Open Source project and the Academy Award-winning animation software Presto.

“I’ve been a customer of Adobe’s software for a number of years, and I always admired Adobe’s commitment to provide top of the line tools to creatives,” noted Quaroni. “When I heard about Adobe’s renewed interest in entering into the 3D market, given how much more pervasive the consumption of 3D content is becoming, I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of. I’m excited to be joining the Adobe team to help accelerate and grow their 3D offerings for creatives worldwide.”

Adobe continues to grow their team of 3D experts and Quaroni’s expertise will help drive innovation across 3D and immersive tools and technology. The first product updates of 2021 are expected to be announced later this month.

Adobe’s upcoming Substance & 3D News livestream on Tuesday, January 28 at 10 a.m. PT will preview upcoming releases to the Substance suite and discuss the future of 3D at Adobe. Additional information is available HERE.
