Products Sketch


Reflex Sketch brings the drawing layers of Reflex into a stand-alone, 2-D system built around the principles of traditional animation. Designed for drawing-tablet or light-table use, Sketch is equally well-suited to the drawing and timing needs of a lone student or a large studio. It includes an advanced X-sheet, levels editor, timeline and pipeline-integration functions. It is not a replacement for ink and paint systems, focusing instead on animation planning, drawing and review.

Pixar's OpenSubdiv

DigitalFish is working closely with Pixar Animation Studios to lead industry evangelism and provide front-line support for Pixar’s OpenSubdiv. This major new technology platform, launched during Fall 2012, represents a profound advancement in graphics for animation, games and 3-D design, enabling “Pixar-quality” graphics on mobile and real-time devices.

OpenSubdiv is a set of open source libraries that implement high-performance subdivision surface (subdiv) evaluation on massively parallel CPU and GPU architectures. The code embodies decades of research and experience by Pixar, and a more recent and still active collaboration on fast GPU drawing between Microsoft Research and Pixar.
