Technology & Research

Innovation is at the heart of what we do as a company, be this developing new techniques, new ideas or creative new ways to tell our clients’ stories.

Underpinning all of this is a long tradition of research, technology and development - from engineering our own bespoke software solutions to gaining early access to bleeding-edge technology and forging vibrant partnerships with leading academic and scientific institutions.

Our custom path tracer, Freak, gives us the flexibility and freedom to produce amazing imagery. The platform is ever-evolving, and taps into skills and knowledge from across Framestore.


Fantastic photoreal creatures are a huge part of our work. Find out about the bespoke rigging, groom and simulation tech that helps bring them to life.  

FUSE (Framestore Unreal Shot Engine) sees Framestore establishing the next era of filmmaking, as we produce an entire film using an innovative new Unreal-powered pipeline.

Framestore is proud to be a key part of PRESENT, a European Commission-supported project to develop an AI-integrated digital human built in Epic’s Unreal Engine.
