* MacLane on Wall-E

There's an awesome interview over on Den of Geek about the technical challenges in making Wall-E:

The software for the actual execution of the film doesn?t change that much. Because you really need to lock it to one piece of software. Maybe there?ll be an update here and there, and they?ll be individual sub-programs developed. For example there was a program developed for Wall E just to get his treads to lock to the ground, so they recognise the ground and wrap around and drive as you translate him along. That was technology that was developed as an offshoot from a very similar program from Cars, in keeping the tyres on the ground. But that?s about as automated as we get. Everything else is pretty much hand animated.
One of the things I love about Pixar is how much time they spend making sure things are right - the quote he has about as much as possible being hand-animated is an indication of this.
