CineGroupe Using Softimage XSI for Pinocchio 3001

(September 25, 2001)
Softimage Co. announced that CineGroupe of Montreal, has selected SOFTIMAGE|XSI v2.0 software for the production of the 80 minute 3D animated feature-length film Pinocchio 3001, a coproduction between CineGroupe, Animakids (France) and Castelao (Spain).

In a twist on one of the world's favorite stories, Pinocchio 3001 takes a futuristic look at the tale of Gepetto and his little robot, Pinocchio, who must learn the difference between right and wrong in order to become human.

The film will be one of the first full computer-generated features in North America to be created using the latest nonlinear animation software from Softimage.

During the last 12 months, CineGroupe undertook an extensive evaluation of 3D animation packages currently on the market and, after careful assessment and tests, selected SOFTIMAGE|XSI for the system's superior creative features and productivity tools. The company will be using 55 SOFTIMAGE|XSI systems for the creation of Pinocchio 3001, which is expected to be released worldwide in 2003.

CineGroupe's relationship with Softimage, dating back to the nineteen eighties, is indicative of the long-standing tradition of service and support Softimage has provided the company.
