Produced for Universal Pictures Visual Programming in conjunction with Los Angeles-based Creative Capers, the series will consist of twenty-six eleven-minute episodes that not only follow the misadventures of a hapless hero named Bill and his feather-brained cohorts, but also bring the gorgeous airbrush style of Bedard's famous poster illustrations to amazing three-dimensional reality.To tackle the enormous production output of a computer animated kid's show, Krislin/Elliot technical director Ryan Smith relies on the pipeline alliance of Discreet's compositing product, combustion and its 3D animation software, 3ds max. Smith explains that while models, animations and initial lighting passes are completed in 3ds max, they are then sent into combustion for visual sweetening and effects. Says Smith, Since going into full production in December, the combination of Discreet's combustion and 3ds max has greatly enhanced our workflow. For instance, Ryan explains that lighting can often be more realistically enhanced in the 2D, rather than the 3D, realm. For this show, we place a particular emphasis on lighting, carefully working with shadows, highlights and specularities in order to give the characters all the dimensionality of the original prints. Inside combustion's virtual 3D camera world, I can have objects move past the camera and light those objects as though they were volumetric. In one shot, our star duck Bill is seen running down a darkened street and we wanted to add a rim light as he ran by the camera. The easiest and most efficient way to create this photo-real effect was to take the shot inside combustion's toolkit and add 2D glints from there. Moving elements, or entire scenes, between the two products is pretty much child's play due to combustion's optimization of the Rich Pixel Format or RPF. Using RPF means we're able to render our scenes in one pass, and still have access to all of the information inside. Before RPF, we would have to break down our scenes to separate layers and rebuild them from their parts. For us it means we're seeing the complete image, while we are working, spending our time improving the scene instead of rebuilding it. combustion and 3ds max also prove their compatibility and power when it comes to integrating CG characters with props or backgrounds. As Smith reports, one of the most difficult jobs in computer animation production is marrying elements so that they appear to live in the same environment. In a recent episode, Smith and team created a convincing 2D effect for a 3D prop. One of the primary characters was sitting at a table dressed as a gypsy fortune teller. As she speaks, she's smoothes the wrinkles of the tablecloth. In combustion, we were able to create convincing animation of the wrinkles and smoothing using 2D filters. The final composite was then rendered and sent to Discreet's edit. Finally, Smith speaks to the speed of the overall pipeline created by linking Discreet software. If retakes are needed, they are easily completed within the combustion environment without the additional redo steps required by other competitive products. Says Smith, In a production-intensive animation environment, those kinds of seemingly small savings add up fast. For Universal and Krislin/Elliot Digital, Discreet solutions definitely have wings.All images (c) Universal Pictures Visual Programming 2001We have art prints and posters framed and unframed.

Bill's neighbors in idyllic Ducktown, Ed, Oly and Waddle, often drag the mismatched duo into wacky, and sometimes dangerous, adventures. Aldo shows remarkable restraint and patience with his feathered friends, but other gators, who reside in neighboring Swampwood, are more interested in ducks as snacks than as pals.

The only thing slightly off-kilter is Pecola, a curious and eager little penguin.

While he may be mischievous, Pecola always has the best intentions. Cartoon Network has acquired 26 half-hour episodes of Pecola, which features colorful and fun CGI animation."Pecola and Sitting Ducks are both whimsical and sweet series that feature popular CGI animation. We think they'll be perfect additions to our weekday morning line-up," said Jim Samples, Cartoon Network general manager and executive vice president.
