On Animation Studios

First known in France as Norman Studios and for the feature films Renaissance and The Prodiges, the studio was renamed ON Animation Studios in 2015 to mark its belonging to ON Entertainment Group.That same year, ON opened a studio in the heart of the young and vibrant city of Montreal, a fast-growing city in the animation industry.

ON Animation Studios became the home of the technical and artistic team that developed and produced the Cesar Award-winning film The Little Prince and Mune - The Guardian of the Moon. The studio is now working on its next adventure, the Playmobil movie with Director Lino DiSalvo (Frozen, Tangled, Bolt).

Isolate any object with a perfect antialiasing

OpenEXR/Id

R.Chikh,C. Corvazier, B. Legros - 06-2016

We present a new storage scheme for computer graphic images based on OpenEXR 2.Using such EXR/Id files, the compositing artist can isolate an object selection (by picking them or using a regular expression to match their names) and color corrects them with no edge artefact, which was not possible to achieve without rendering the object selection on its own layer. Using this file format avoids going back and forth between the rendering and the compositing departments because no mask image or layering are needed anymore.

The technique is demonstrated in an open source software suite, including a library to read and write the EXR/Id files and an OpenFX plug-in which generates the images in any compositing software.

Lend me your comb : faster grooming with an artist adaptive software

ON Animation Studios Technical Paper

Jérémy Ringard - 07-2016

In this paper, we present the solution we developped at ON Animation Studios to assist the Character FX department on the production of Mune and The Little Prince. Our goal was to design a tool that adapts to the artists rather than a solution that requires learning and practice. To do this, we provide the grooming artists the freedom to choose the interaction mode they feel the most comfortable with. Therefore, the grooming system we wrote provides three different approaches to create hair: curve sculpting, volume modeling, and sketch-based. While being different, these approaches remains compatible and can be mixed together depending of the artists’ needs.

Shape-Analysis-Driven Surface Correction

SIGGRAPH 2016

Claude Levastre - 08-2017

In this paper, we describe a technique called Shape Analysis Driven Surface Correction that introduces a new generalized way of stor- ing and restituting surface corrections and automate their blending by using live surface shape analysis combined with Radial Basis Function (RBF) based interpolators.
