NewsWire: Infernal combustion - Onfilm


These effects will only get better now...
Susan sent in the following blurb in OnFilm... Hmm. When they say "flash fx" somehow I don't think they mean the Flash plugin for internet browsers (well, at least my computer doesn't need 2GB of RAM to run Flash)...

Infernal combustion
Onfilm - May 2000

Weta has installed the Southern Hemisphere's biggest Discreet Inferno system to do the flash fx for The Lord Of The Rings. Here's what this baby does. It runs on an eight CPU SGI Onyx 2 rack system configured with 2GB RAM; the installation includes half a terabyte of Discreet Stone R18 fibre channel disk arrays.
