DigitalFish’s work bringing Pixar’s OpenSubdiv to a mobile device for our client Motorola Mobility was featured onstage at Qualcomm’s Uplinq conference. Motorola Mobility Senior Vice President Dr. Regina Dugan introduced the use of OpenSubdiv in this innovative real-time animation piece by Academy Award-winning director Jan Pinkava. DigitalFish’s Mark Oftedal contributed story development and animation direction.

This is the first-ever deployment of OpenSubdiv running real-time on a mobile device. A team of DigitalFish engineers led by Senior Research Scientist Nathan Litke were embedded within Motorola Mobility’s Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) group. Our work included introducing “real-time mobile” features into OpenSubdiv, such as animation-engine integration and extensive optimizations for OpenCL and OpenGL ES on Qualcomm’s Adreno 320 (Snapdragon 800) mobile GPU. Motorola Mobility, a division of Google, has announced it intends to contribute the DigitalFish-developed code in Windy Day into the OpenSubdiv public repository.
