sure they're done by Pixar.. but who from Pixar? Look, Pixar is a huge company ( well, maybe not that huge). Its definetely NOT done by the real real pros at Pixar (ie those who made Monsters Inc, Toy Story, etc.). It looks to me like an individual project done by one of the computer guys at Pixar. Obviously this guy had too much time.

Still, I love them.

Well, it could be done by Pixar for the relation it has with Luxo.

The same texture on the flor.
The same camera angle.
The animationis not the same but familiar.
The details in the animation (when the computer moves the screen every time the CD opens up as looking at it).

The only different thing is the sound, too many noises that doesn't really match the video. Sounds silly.

So, looks like from the same school. But looks like a sample from the entire comertial by the way it finish it up.

You guys are ANAL

Dont you have anything better to do? Good GRIEF! These people from Pixar were playing around! God. It was just a pet project to have some fun with the new iMac. What a joke. "This want made by the REAL PROS at Pixar" you said. Good God man. No, wait, you're totally right- they didnt have 300 of their employees working around the clock for 4 years to produce this, like they did for Toy Story and Monsters Inc.

IT WAS A PET PROJECT FOR FUN. Leave it at that. They probably spent an afternoon on it, on a slow day. Dont forget, they have a sense of humor just like everyone else, and big stuidios are always making stuff 'on the side' so they can learn, have fun, and yes, play around. I made iBoing (link on signature) in an afternoon, and Im not Pixar, just a normal guy with some 3d knowledge.

Good grief. Dont dissect it like its the biggest secret in the world.

Sorry--not directed at the thread starter. I was commenting on irmongoose's comment about how they werent done by the 'real pro's' at Pixar. That just made me laugh. Yeah, Pixar has two divisions. The professional group, and the idiots who just occupy a desk, make silly iMac animations, and get paid to fool around. Yeah. You're a REAL thinker.

I LOVE the longer of the 2 ads, I don't care that I, a 3D failure, could have done it in <week (remember, I am BAD at 3D, takes me a while) in 3D Max
