 What Makes Pixar Run?

"The company continues to refine RenderMan, and many digital-effects houses and computer-graphics specialists use it. "They have deep technical roots," DeMartino said. "It put them ahead of others in understanding how computer graphics work and can be used effectively." In March, Pixar moved to using OS X and Power Mac G5s for its workflow needs. In a recent speech, Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) senior systems engineer Don Peebles noted that Pixar challenged his company to come up with a way to review HD-quality video on the desktop at a reduced file size, but keeping the same level of quality."
