All the Vegetation in Pixar’s “Brave” Changed, When One Software Engineer Got a New Phone Number

quote [ creating panic in a handful of teams for about half a day. ]

Interesting story from a Spanish demoscene genius turned Hollywood asset. Note his nice opinions on patenting and a great intro into generative math.

The article has all the links, I try to sort it out for you:

  1. Disney vegetation is cleverly generated using procedural formulas (Video)

  2. the generation is triggered by the actual coder's phone number (self-documenting code for checking back on him)

  3. new phone number in code updates vegetation on several films

  4. his page contains 15 years of 3D programming tricks
