Progression of Pixar
Then, Pixar/Disney released "The Little Mermaid". The Little Mermaid was different because the characters were 3D. It got such good reviews that Pixar decided to use the CAPS animation style for all of their films.
After that, when Pixars company was finally real, they created the new film, "Toy Story". Toy Story was a whole new genre of animation because they payedd real close attention to the lighting and the characters were made on computers. When Toy Story was released it got really good reviews. So, for all of Pixar's films they used that type of animation.
First Pixar/Disney made short films with drawings.
Then, Pixar/Disney used CAPS which made characters look more 3D.
Now, Pixar is a real company and makes characters on the computer using a different style of animation.
Impact on Society
Lasseter (Pixars main animator) was honored with a SAAA award from Motion Picture Arts for the first computer animated film. Toy Story also got an award for best film of the year. Toy Story was what made Pixar famous. Without Pixar, many of the same drawing techniques would still be used today.
