We’re just finishing off a large animation project, an offshoring explainer video. We’re now rendering everything out, which takes forever. We’ve got three different machines running, but it’s like waiting for paint to dry. You daren’t do anything else too strenuous on the computer in case it throws the animation off. Time for cake from the Albion then…

UPDATE 10/3/17

I stumbled across this post and it really made me laugh at how far technology at  Napoleon Creative has come. Seven years on, the iMacs we’re now using probably have double the power of the ones in this image. We got own server around 2012, which we updated in 2015, all of which sped us up amazingly. Renders are quicker than ever, since the computers are higher spec and the software is more efficient. We also use render farms like Rebus to accelerate the way we work, an option which wasn’t available back in 2010!
