Most of that time has been spent using linear rendering1 to deliver pretty PNGs (an image format) or uncompressed Quicktimes (a movie format) and getting them to developers in the right order to give the illusion of interactive 3d, this has worked well, with some very pretty interactive experiences or content delivery possible in this way

Low budgets suck

We’ve done a few low budget jobs in our time. We’ve even done some insanely low budget work.

New name, Same game.

What’s in a name? Well, quite a lot, when you’re in our business. That’s why we’ve changed ours. From this day forward, JS3D will now be known as Kettle. A new name, a new studio, but offering the same inspirational creativity we always have.
