Each section of the 12,000 square-foot exhibition puts visitors in command of one of the interlocking aspects of animated filmmaking that brings Pixar’s worlds so vividly to life. You can tweak lighting, shapes, the joints of animated bodies, the factors that influence the growth of virtual vegetation, and the many textures and surface skins that can be applied to animate and inanimate digital objects. Kids will be thrilled at this magical power, and will be completely absorbed in experimenting to see how real animators achieve different results.
