New World Monkeys: These monkeys live in the neotropical forests of the "new world". New World Monkeys range vastly in size - some are quite tiny, like the 6 inch pygmy marmoset, and some are larger - the howler monkey can be up to 3 feet in length.
New World Monkeys are called platyrrhines. Characteristics of New World Monkeys: Wide nostrils which are circular and spaced apart.
They are small to medium sized. Long tails which are sometimes prehensile. No buttock pads. No cheek pouches. They are divided into two groups: The Callitrichidae, which include the smaller tamarins and marmosets, and the Cebide Monkeys, which include a wider variety of monkeys including the capuchin, owl, titi, saki, spider, wooly, and many others. As you may start to discover from the photos, there are many kinds of monkeys both New World and Old World - many more than the apes, and also more than the next kind of primate, one much less well-known Not a monkey OR an ape: There is one other kind of primate that people may not be aware of.
Prosimians are the most primitive of the primates - sometimes they are referred to as "pre-monkeys". There name means "before monkeys". Prosimians include animals like lemurs, lorises, and tarsiers. They are the ancestors to monkeys, and apes and live a very different lifestyle. Nocturnal and sensitive: In contrast to diurnal daytime monkeys and apes, prosimians are mostly nocturnal Specialized and tropical; They are usually very specialized to their environment and have a variety of social systems.
Like monkeys and apes though, they do have a developed hand with good control. They are restricted to living only in tropical woodlands Prosimians are restricted to tropical woodlands.
Many surviving species have become nocturnal, probably because of competition from diurnal monkeys and rodents. Most prosimians are endangered, some critically so. For one thing, with so many outdoor environments, we have to use a lighting technique called global illumination. We won a Sci-Tech award for it this year, which was great. But it had one specific weakness, which is that when you tried to use it with fur it was extremely complicated.
So we have been working on a new renderer that uses a different technique called path tracing to actually trace rays through each individual hair. It will hit the hair, go through to the next one, the next one, and it does this hundreds of millions of times for each frame. We used the new renderer for that, because we needed that kind of compute power to show all those apes. There was disagreement between people who said that what VFX artists do is like what a makeup artist would have done in the past, and others who said the visual effects team makes creative decisions that can change the performance.
I know that Andy has used that metaphor of digital makeup before, but I think that he was just trying to explain it to an audience that was not technically very savvy.
The difference is that makeup is passive. And the more makeup you put on, the more it actually deadens the performance. Where we sometimes need to enhance the performance. So yes, we do make those sorts of translations all the time. For example, chimps have really deep-set eyes, and deep brows. So when you see a facial expression on an actor, you can clearly read what the eyes are doing and what the brows are doing.
