Q&A: Pi Square, the Taiwan Startup Rendering Animations in Real-Time

Pi Square


If you’re an architect, designer, animator, or anyone who has experience with animation and modeling software, you probably understand the pain of waiting for your work to render.
But a Taiwan startup is aiming to save your time by rendering your animations or models in real-time, as you create them.
“We’re taking advantage of the rendering power of game engines to render animations so it’s much faster than the current pipeline,” says Spock Yao (姚裕勝), 46, co-founder of Pi Square.
The team of six are all veterans of the animation, movie and video game industries, including Alberto Menache, 55, who has years of experience working for companies like Sony Pictures and PDI, which is now DreamWorks Animation.
