Star Wars goes Windows XP / Server 2003 and AMD64


I only can say – as an old Star Wars fan – it’s just great: rendering for Episode III – Revenge of the Sith will happen on Windows XP and AMD64. Just click here (another German announcement here) to get the info :-))

    not too sure if that’s the final rendering…from the article it looks like before & after touchups and conceptual stuff.

    iirc, Industrial Light & Magic do the heavy lifting for the actual scenes, can’t see George outsourcing that to a third party like JAK.

    ILM runs a huge Linux renderfarm…if ILM has converted over, that would be definitely be a big win for MS. interesting…but unlikely at presnet. windows XP doesn’t have the huge cluster HPC features that you’d need to render the entire movie. although microsoft is entering that area…
