Adventures at Apple Part 1 1988-93: Movie Mania
After leaving Alias I joined the Advanced Technology Group at Apple Computer,
Inc. I started by working on making a movie of physically-based snake locomotion
which was an extension of my 1988 SIGGRAPH paper. This led to the motion
generation code and the renderer for Her Majesty's Secret Serpent.

With the birth of QuickTime (in 1991) I worked on a multimedia title
called the Virtual Museum. This enabled users to walk from room to room
and to examine exhibits. The Virtual Museum contained the seeds of the ideas
which later became QuickTime VR.
