Cutting-edge tech solutions creator Unity has been awarded its first Technology & Engineering Emmy Award, for 3D Engine Software for the Production of Animation, as a result of its work with Disney Television Animation on the Big Hero 6-inspired shorts Baymax Dreams (3 x 2’). The TV Academy remarked particularly on the Cinemachine and Timeline technologies in Unity that helped bring the shorts to life, and that the tech showed “excellence in engineering creativity and has materially affected the television viewing experience.”
