Can you remember the Incredibles? Pretty awesome film in my opinion. While promoting Tomorrowland, director Brad Bird confirmed that his next film will be the much awaited The Incredibles 2. Brad Bird wrote and directed the original Incredibles back in 2004. He recently confirmed that he was working on putting the sequel together.

“I had a lot of ideas for the original Incredibles that I didn’t get a chance to use that I like. I have ideas that I wanted to pursue a little bit and there wasn’t enough time in Incredibles. There are new ideas I have, and I think there are enough of those together to make an interesting movie. I’m just focusing on getting Tomorrowland out into the world and playing with the Incredibles sandbox again.” 

One of the keys to Pixar’s ability to do what it does is the giant, powerful render farm located in its main headquarters building. This is serious computing power, and on “Cars 2,” it required an average of 11.5 hours to render each frame.But some sequences were especially complex, particularly those involving ray tracing–which involves simulating light hitting surfaces, essentially “trying to simulate photons.” And as a result, a huge amount of computing power was needed to process frames that took as much as 80 or 90 hours to render.And that meant that the studio “bulked up our render farm.”He said that Pixar had to triple its size, and today, the render farm features 12,500 cores on Dell render blades. As well, the file servers, network backbone, and every other piece of the computing puzzle was boosted in order to handle the making of “Cars 2.”

We can expect Pixar to be using the render farm to its full capacity in the Incredibles 2 and we can only hope that there will be some stunning animation techniques.
