Since there are no gaffers or grips in animated films (except maybe A
Bug's Life, according to the end credits), I'd very much doubt it :)

Pacific Data Images, the studio behind Antz, as well as Pixar (Toy
Story, A Bug's Life) and a handful of other companies, use quite a bit
of proprietary software, some of it written to deal with specific issues
during productions. I imagine few movies will have technical writer
credits.

My words are my own. Confuse them with my employer's at your own risk.
