Digital animation, a sector where AMD Inc. is particularly well represented with its ATI FireGL™ and ATI FirePro™ workstation graphics accelerators (graphics cards), has advanced significantly from the days of 2D cartoon shorts. As the technology and software have improved, so digital animation has reached into more-or-less every creative area.
“The FireGL™ card performs on all fronts. I can have more polygons on screen and the real time hardware rendering is superb. More importantly for animation when you press play you can see the playback in real time – because of the speed of the graphics card the motion is smooth and not at all jittery and there is no need for batch rendering.” -- Sol Rogers, Senior Lecturer, University of Hertfordshire BA (Hons) Digital Animation Programme
