Adobe has announced that Guido Quaroni will join its team as senior director of engineering on the 3D and immersive team. Prior to his new position, Quaroni was a supervising TD at Pixar where he worked on films like Monsters University and Toy Story 3. Then, from 2011, he was vice president of software R&D and oversaw the studio graphics and animation software, including the USD Open Source project and the Academy Award-winning animation software “Presto”. This hire can be seen as a further affirmation of Adobe’s commitment to 3D following their acquisitions of Substance and Medium in 2019. Read the announcement in full on Adobe’s blog.
