Disney Animation hot takes
DFA’s “Hyperion” renderer has been technically superior in just about every way to Pixar’s aging “RenderMan” for several years now.
Latest example: the short “Us Again”. Probably a coincidence it shares so much aesthetic with (the Earth based parts of) Pixar’s Soul, but also wow does it show off how much better Hyperion is at that aesthetic than RenderMan. Like that’s a living New Orleans like city, not just a couple blocks that look great only in tight shots.
