AlejoHausner wrote In 1972, Ed Catmull, then at the University of Utah, put together a film featuring many of the 3D graphics and other techniques he developed while working as a student in the laboratory of Ivan Sutherland . This film has been digitized and is available. All kinds of modern techniques such as Gouraud shading, mesh distortion, and z-buffer are shown in the film. This is a segment Catmull scan showing a plaster model of his hand. Catmull founded Pixar went on, but at the time the laboratory pioneer Utah most graphic techniques that we take for granted today. I’m just sorry I missed this film at first went online earlier this year.
