Ed Catmull interview

For those interested in the opinions of one of the figureheads of computer graphics research, I've just come across a fascinating interview of Ed Catmull at ACM Queue, current president of Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios but also, according to many, the originator of key graphics techniques and algorithms such as anti-aliasing, subdivided surfaces ones and Z-buffering.

In this interview, conducted by Stanford computer graphics professor Pat Hanrahan, Catmull discusses many aspects of CG from his seminal PhD thesis to his journey through the years leading up to his Pixar appointment. Well worth a read, you can find the full interview here.
