DreamWorks reveals the tech behind the art

Techradar gets a behind the scenes look at the tech powering DreamWorks’ computer animated films. As you can probably imagine if you’ve ever filled a hard drive on your own PC, a CG film takes up a lot of space. A typical DreamWorks film “might render 65 million hours of footage to come up with 90 minutes of worthwhile materials”. The final file could weigh in at 250 terabytes! But before a scene ever reaches the computers it is thoroughly storyboarded and reworked to ensure the best version is what ends up getting rendered. However, advances in the technology now allow the animators more leeway to experiment with how scenes will look on the computer without having to wait.
