Pixar - A Human Story of Computer Animation

What's the difference between Nurbs and Polygons? That was one of the questions from last nights Q&A session with our AM mentor: Steve Adamson. I dont know much the difference but I go to wikipedia for more answers: NURBS - POLYGONS. It just reminded me about the video I watched on how Ed Catmull created a cg hand for his college thesis. He's the man behind all these 3D stuff. Kudos to Ed, Brad, Andrew & Alvy! Anyway check out the video, these are the geniuses who pushed the art of computer graphics & animation. Truly inspiring.
