'Roadside Romeo' rendered on Indian super

From CIOL.com comes news of India’s Eka supercomputer used to render the latest Disney animated feature

The movie ‘Roadside Romeo’, which was a first and joint effort towards a complete animation flick by Yash Raj Films with Walt Disney, used supercomputer Eka’s skills to a great extent.

…”Scene by scene it is a computer-intense job, which, on normal computer would take a year’s time and that too with less quality. Supercomputer has set a new bar in animation with high quality levels made possible through a deeper rendering. Not all of Eka was used in this movie but about one-third was used.”

‘Roadside Romeo’ has been reported to be in the $7 million range, which is far less than that of an average Pixar feature.
