Disney Animation #TechTuesday Moana Water progression:
1. Animators give water motion using a simplified character rig
2. Simulation adds real-life physics to make the water believable
3. Effects and Lighting brings the scene to life.
This amount of depth, detail and artistry went into every frame.
