For rocket's hair, instead of mapping out his entire coat of fur with only a few sections of hair, Framestore made it even more realistic by stimulating every single hair on rocket's body and how they interacted with other hairs. They had his distinctive raccoon-pattern markings by changing the color maps on individual hairs and used a mixing effect to create the speckled look on some hair. They separated the short fine hair from the layer of longer hairs to only stimulate the longer hairs. Thus, they were able to stimulate the full hair count of the longer hairs instead of using a low density set of guide hairs to drive the rest of the hair. The simulations were therefore very accurate. The fur was also separated into sections. This meant that they could easily remove parts of the fur which were not visible in shot. In total, it comprised of 22 hair

    This is a view supported by historian Lawrence Levine, who believes pop culture is simply “culture that is popular; culture that is widely accessible and widely accessed; widely disseminated and widely viewed or heard or read.” (Takacs 4). Now this theory has its shortcomings, as it lacks the mechanisms to provide quantifiable numerical categories to distinguish popular culture (Takacs 4). However, the foundation of this theory can still be used to illustrate the success of the story and its adaption into a film. Prior to the films, the books had sold over 100 million copies, which would still rank it amongst the top 10 best selling books (Wagner). Now, the popularity theory of pop culture does not provide us with a quantifiable categorization system, but nevertheless, if a book ranks in the top 10 for most sold ever, its fair to say it is popular.…
