Computer Animation, circa 1971

This promotional video shows off the capabilities of the early computer animation application Key Frame. It’s pretty jaw-dropping to see this done entirely with a graphical user interface (in 3D!) that early. Anyone familiar with Flash will recognize the process of creating key frames, then letting the software “tween” then animation that connects them.

Via Neatorama.
