Popularly known as ILM it was started by George Lucas in 1975. Apparently he was not satisfied with the skill level in technology and started this company and took on the first project of Star Wars. And the rest is history. Even when 2D and 3D animation was still being explored ILM took animation to another level and was successful in it. Terminator 2, Jurassic park etc would have been the same without their special effects and animation. In a way ILM is the pioneer in animation and still continues to explore new avenue to enrich the industry.

When talking about animation, Pixar cannot be left out of the conversation. With a growing list of 3D films & numerous Academy Awards in its pocket, Pixar has changed the way we look at 3D animation. With a massive inflow of work from Pixar, it is hard to imagine that 3D animation is relatively new in animation film history. Their works have been appreciated & have been a source of inspiration for many & continues to do so.
