DigitalScape, today, announced its collaboration with Workstation Platform leader, IWILL Corporation, and with a number of Special Effects Studios in the production of Warner Bros, C-2 Pictures and Intermedia 's blockbuster film, "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines."

One of the visual effects studios, Digiscope, used DigitalScape Visual Computing Workstations to composite scenes of the Terminator characters and T-X "Skynet designed" cyborgs.
