2009 - Walt Disney Studios
The packing peanuts were done with a command line ODE open source solver implemented by Nicola Candussi, using Houdini as a front and back end. Houdini Chops and keyframe modifications adjusted the animation to conform to the director's notes. The fire sequence was done using a fire library designed and implemented by Cesar Vasquez and David Hutchins. I animated the falling timbers using the Houdini RBD solver modified with some keyframed adjustments.
