2D in 3D - Digital Alchemy has been creating new tools and solutions for bringing 2D Vector based drawings and characters into a 3D environment.  This achieves a much more authentic look of traditional 2D than toon shaders, yet still allows the freedom of working in a 3D set.  This image is a sample from a show in development using this technique.

Microsoft High Performance Computing - In conjunction with the High Performance Computing division at Microsoft Canada, Digital Alchemy is currently providing a proof of concept for the implementation of a Windows based HPC environment solution.  The intention of this installation is to provide advanced render farm capabilities.
