RISE uses 100 percent renewable energy

We strongly believe that nothing - and especially not the entertainment industry - should have a negative impact on our environment.

Maya 2016

Alex, our Animation supe, has a mental meltdown thanks to Autodesk Maya 2016 not remembering driven keys and not updating image planes properly. Good thing we updated to the latest version - because it used to work flawlessly in 2015! Must be one of those Mondays...
