It still takes a long time, because the complexity of the rendered frames has
increased as the capabilities of the rendering tools and systems have. But the
big guns use rendering farms. A master system sends individual frames to
networked slaves that render multiple frames simultaneously, so that a 100-frame
animation is rendered in the time required to render a single frame. Then the
master combines all the frames. The rendering farm at Pixar Studios contains
1024 rackmounted 2.8 GHz processors.
