Star Wars computer animations

Designer Larry Cuba explains how he made the simulation of the Death Star and the trench fly-through in the mission briefing scene in the original Star Wars movie. This being 1976, the approach to create the computer-animated images is quite impressive. I'm especially fond of his workdesk with the 10 dials used to rotate and position the elements, looks like a really straightforward method to manipulate those items on a screen (as compared to a mouse).
