The Technology Behind "Cars 2"

CNET has a closer look at the technology and science behind the upcoming Disney/Pixar "Cars 2".

Among those mentioned is the water effect.

With "Nemo," Shah explained, Pixar had come up with a "softer-looking water," but with "Cars 2," the team felt that audiences would be expecting the oil rig sequence to feature edgier, stormier water.

To achieve that, they explored a series of new water systems and ended up applying a mathematical wave model called Tessendorf, Shah said, which allowed for the creation of "more cuspy," sharper sea waves.
