Prof. Kivolowitz co-wrote the visual effects software SilhouetteFX, which received its Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Scientific and Technical Achievement Award this past weekend.
According to the Academy, “Silhouette provides a comprehensive solution for painting, rotoscoping, and image manipulation of high-resolution image sequences. Its fast, scalable, and extensible architecture has resulted in wide adoption in motion picture post-production.”
The award names two of Prof. Kivolowitz’s partners, lead programmer Paul Miller and lead designer Marco Paolini. A recipient of a Scientific and Technical Achievement Award in 1996 for the invention of shape-driven warping and morphing, Prof. Kivolowitz is proud that software, to which he has contributed for 14 years, has been honored in this way.
