John Robinson computer modelJohn Robinson Computer Model in scene

If you are interested in how this kind of computer animated movie is made, here are some notes from Scott.

John Robinson and Dr. Smith were made from scratch using some software called Poser 7. Poser 7 was used for all the animations inside the ship. All the outside animations shown at the beginning of the movie are created using Vue 6 Esprit. Scott also used Photoshop for making the costumes and some of the objects.


Special thanks go to Matrixworks who made the Penny figure, the basic Jupiter 2 (which has since been enhanced by Scott), and the Robot model. Lost in Space is copyright Irwin Allen Properties, LLC and Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation.
