The Video That Inspired Tron

Posted By: on February 2, 2011

This is an early (1970s through 1980) demo reel from MAGI/Synthavision, who would later go on to provide many of the CGI effects for the feature film Tron. Mostly television advertising and effects in the early years.

It’s a pretty cool look at what inspired the original Tron movie. I love looking at old vintage computer animation like this. Especially seeing how far its come since then.
