MC2BackUp Post 1944 The WIKI Numbers to Get Big Hero 6 Made





(It’s a bit like) Blade Runner, but contained to a few square blocks. You see the skyscrapers contrasted with the hills." The reason why Disney wanted to merge Tokyo (which is where the comic book version takes place) with San Francisco was partly because San Francisco had not been used by Marvel before, partly because of all the city's iconic aspects, and partly because they felt its aesthetics would blend well with Tokyo. To create San Fransokyo as a detailed digital simulation of an entire city, Disney purchased the actual assessor data for the entire city and county of San Francisco. The final city contains over 83,000 buildings and 100,000 vehicles.

A software program called Denizen was used to create over 700 distinctive characters that populate the city, another one named Bonzai was responsible for the creation of the city’s 250,000 trees, while a new rendering system called Hyperion offered new illumination possibilities, like light shining through a translucent object (i.e., Baymax's vinyl covering).

Development on Hyperion started in 2011 and was based upon research into multi-bounce complex global illumination originally conducted at Disney Research in Zürich. Disney in turn had to assemble a new supercomputing cluster just to handle Hyperion's immense processing demands, which consists of over 2,300 Linux workstations distributed across four data centers (three in Los Angeles and one in San Francisco). Each workstation, as of 2014, included a pair of 2.4 GHz Intel Xeon processors, 256 GB of memory, and a pair of 300 GB solid-state drives configured as a RAID Level 0 array (i.e., to operate as a single 600 GB drive).

This was all backed by a central storage system with a capacity of five petabytes, which holds all digital assets as well as archival copies of all 54 Disney Animation films.






Big Hero 6 premiered at the Tokyo International Film Festival on October 23, 2014 and at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival in 3D on October 31, 2014. It was theatrically released in the United States on November 7, 2014, and was met with positive reviews.

With all the Tech needed to make a movie like Big Hero 6, there are Free Software Tools that run on Windows machines that give the Cartoon Movie Hacker a chance to Learn some of these feats on a smaller scale.

Blender 3D is one that Jumps to the front of the List.

Putinpedia? Russia will create ‘alternative to Wikipedia’ 

amid Putin Internet crackdown.



Harvard University doesn’t trust it. Foes of Internet trolls and “Internet rage” shun it. And to those who sneer at “the dumbness of crowds,” it will never compete with Encyclopedia Britannica. Heck: If you want to read more about the scorn for Wikipedia, check out the Wikipedia entry “Criticism of Wikipedia.”

After today, Russian President Vladimir Putin will warrant citation in that entry, if he’s not there by the time you read this. The Russian government has announced it will create a “regional electronic encyclopedia” to serve as a counterweight to Wikipedia.
