 GFX: Industrial Light & Magic

Linux Journal tells us about Industrial Light & Magic.

"We often go into a show knowing what we want but are forced to scale back realism with shortcuts because of a lack of processing power. Using Linux we can add more realism. We direct effects. It isn't enough to have a cloud that is an NOAA-accurate model. Artistic staff directs the effects with, ``Make that cloud more fluffy''. Or, if we simulate an entire ocean, as in Perfect Storm, ``Make that wave larger''."
