Comment American living abroad here. (Score 1) 1141

Portion size. Thats why Americans are fat. Food is cheap and portions are huge. When I first moved to New Zealand I ate out a lot. The portions seemed tiny and I was always hungry. Then I just got used to it and now I can't stop losing weight. In fact what used to seem tiny now fills me up.

Also The Foundry's Katana (new awesome product). Qt, specifically PyQt/PySide are huge in VFX industry. I don't know of a large VFX house that is not using PyQt at all levels of the pipeline.

Are you talking about RealD? What is Real3D? RealD is not taking an image and shifting it. All RealD does is take the right eye/left eye and converts it to a format that works better in movie theaters, especially in the front row. They are not into stereo conversion. The don't touch the convergence. "Disney Digital 3D" is just a marketing term, Disney itself doesn't really have a stereo conversion process They pay other people to do it. Every VFX house does 3D differently, and most Disney movies have at least 2 different houses working on 3D conversion. I've worked on many Disney films, including Alice in Wonderland and GeForce.
