Just found this on a newsgroup, posted by a guy from pixar…
i thought this might interest a few of you… here are the data stats around Ratatouille for your consumption.
- General render farm usage was around 3100 cores.
- Each node had 4 cores and used 16GB of memory. (Linux Boxes)
- Ratatouille model and animation data was around 5 Terrabytes
- The “average” frame render time was about 6.5 cpu-hours.
This data is being made public in the coming days, so you have the scoop, and i have permission to share it.
