Independent animation company Pacific Data Images {P.D.I.} was founded in 1980, to produce animated logos & TV commercials; expanded in 1990 to develop CGI (computer generated imagery) animation software; in 1997, DreamWorks S.K.G. (founded in 1994) formed a partnership with P.D.I., resulting in the hit feature "Antz" [1998], and the "Shrek" films; in 2004, DreamWorks's own animation division split from the parent, purchased the remainder of P.D.I., and took the name DreamWorks Animation. DreamWorks Animation's distribution deal with Paramount ends in 2012, so they are now signed with Fox to distribute from 2013 thru 2017.
