They use Softimage Toonz for 2D ink & paint/composite, and Alias|Wavefront PowerAnimator and Maya for 3D.

Here is an eMail about it by Scott Vanzo (Head of RoughDraft) in response to an older PEEL thread: http://www.gotfuturama.com/Information/Articles/3dani.dhtml

to australian guy, whose two posts I deleted: please stop adding posts that have no content to contribute. It triggers moderators to close threads as they fear they are going down the ditch, which would make further discussion on the topic of 3D software in Futurama kinda impossible

While we're on the subject of animation, I've had an e-mail from the Wonderful World of Art ( http://www.animationartgallery.com/afuturama.html ) asking me if I want to buy Futurama production drawings.  Did anyone else get this e-mail?

mArc, do you know if Softimage Toonz is what they use now for The Simpsons? I heard they recently switched over from doing it the old-fashioned way to computer (at least for coloring). I think I noticed some difference in the way last week's Simpsons episode was colored. It looked a bit more like Futurama's. Or is it just me and I'm crazy? Every time something good happens to me you always say it's some kind of madness... or that I'm drunk.. or I've had too much candy!!

They also mentioned a 'crappy photoshop effect' was used. I think it was the sand on When Aliens Attack.

I got the very same e-mail PCC, someone must have scoured this message board.

The sand doesn't look noticably worse than any other animation to my untrained eye, but it could well be photoshop now you mention it.
