PowerAnimator was launched in 1990.
In 1997, John Gibson, Rob Krieger, Milan Novacek, Glen Ozymok and Dave Springer were presented with the Scientific and Engineering Award for their contributions to the geometric modeling component of the PowerAnimator system.
"The Alias PowerAnimator system is widely regarded in the computer animation field as one of the best commercially available software packages for digital geometric modeling. Used by many motion picture visual effects houses, it has been a benchmark for comparison of modeling tools and has had a major influence on visual effects and animation."
PowerAnimator was previously used in the creation of animation for the TV series South Park.
