A library of digital assets – 3D scenes, digital cinema footage, etc. – that demonstrate the scale and complexity of modern feature film production, including computer graphics, visual effects and animation. Curated by the Academy Software Foundation, these assets are available free of charge to researchers and developers of both open source and commercial projects, to test, demonstrate, and inspire their ideas. See our license template.
