Computer graphics in movies has become de rigueur and Catmull has been there since the beginning. He founded three of the leading centers of computer graphics research: The computer graphics laboratory at the New York Institute of Technology; the computer division of Lucasfilm Ltd.; and Pixar Animation Studios. He is one of the architects of the seminal program RenderMan, which has been used in 44 of the last 47 films nominated for an Academy Award in visual effects. Catmull has won five Oscars.
