If this particular link has been posted, I missed it. I do remember a post a while back though about Weta's data center...
2010 was the year of the Na'vi.Vivar 'ivong Na'vi!

Weta is INCREDIBLE. I remember what they did for The Lord of the Rings, for example, and it's completely out of mind. :)

Computer graphics: It's just a question of how much time and processing power you have to throw at a problem. Just look at the images people were getting out of POVRay 10 years ago. Can't fault them on doing their homework and putting lots of thought into all aspects of said rendering, though, that's something you definitely can't do automatically.
