How Pixar's Animation Has Evolved Over 24 Years, From ‘Toy Story’ To ‘Toy Story 4’ | Movies Insider

  • Published: 20 June 2019
  • From “Toy Story” through “Toy Story 4,” Pixar has revolutionized animation in its nearly three decades of existence. Each new movie requires new technical innovations. “Monster’s Inc.” helped them create fur, “Ratatouille” helped them create wet fur, and “Finding Dory” led them to create an octopus from scratch. In “Toy Story 4,” which comes out June 21, they updated Bo Peep, created Forky, and made perhaps the most realistic-looking cat you’ll ever see in animated form.

      Why didn't they make a sequel to Bug's Life pixar could have done anything with that movie.

      And I hope Hicks or makes an animated shorts sequel of Coco where Miguel goes back the Land of the Dead to find out if Hector fade away or not to get closure.

    Toy story have improved their graphics loads, but at the same not to the extent where you notice and it still looks like the 95 version. And I highly appreciate that

        To me, the prop shop shots (wow, try to say that 6 times) in Toy Story 4 looked so realistic that they could compare the shots from a prop shop in real life and I wouldn't spot any difference!

              Toy story is bad on animation(Though it was pretty good at the moment.) but excellent plot.
              Toy Story 4 was excellent, incredible animation, but terrible plot.

                          Something that helped pixar greatly with lighting was their expansion of the renderman software to utilize raytracing back when they made Cars

                            The original had less detailed texture work and geometry but it nailed that 'plastic' look. The updated designs look too real! Light seeps through the 'skin' like it would on a real person. Surfaces and materials behaved more naturally under a harsh light.

                                Disney-Pixar's animations aren't the main element that shows its evolution. Disney's animation was God-tire from their cel-animated era. What truly evolved is the technical part of the industry. The render engines, the shading engines, simulation, lighting. Physical Based Rendering, one of the biggest reasons behind CG realism. So lets all also give a round of applause for all the technical artists at Pixar and all other studios. Without them, all we would be getting are playblasts.

                                                        Being able to watch the first ever Toy Story Film never made me realize that the graphics were that bad until today. Lol still proud I was able to witness their progress.❤️ And watching this makes me feel like I don't really belong in Pixar Industry.😂

Yes it wasn't that intricate. But how the characters move feels more expressive. Somehow, I wish Pixar wouldn't lean onto realism too much.
