    There was a program on tv some years ago about computer animation.They showed a small piece of a film which at the time I thought was based on one of anne mccathery's dragons of pern books.I assume it was from the early 80's.I have looked for this film but with no luck.Could it be the Flight of Dragons that was shown in this computer animation program?Did this film rely partly on computer animation?

      could be a couple of things, including flight of dragons, the hobbit, lord of the rings animated. Flight of dragons though was mainly animation.

        I can remember the lord of the rings when it came out.I paid a hefty price for it on video then eagerly waited for the second part which never arrived.Such a pity as althow it had so many flaws it was really good for the time it was made in.

        I have a feeling the computer imagery was used partly for the scenery and background,and the rest was conventional stills animation.So long ago.I really need to find out if that computer animation program has been posted on u-tube but it may take some time to find it.
