Dude, y'all seriously need a faster processor if that took fifty hours!!! What did you do it on? A Mac? You need a Matrox card. For real!
Love ya, Mean it!

Don't get me wrong, it's really cool. I like it a lot. But 50 hours?

Ever done 3D Modeling? All footage was computer generated ...the time is actually normal.
All of our Creative Arts department runs on Macs. My fastest computer is a Mac Pro tower with 8 cores....running at 3.2 Ghz

Now my team didn't do this video. We actually outsourced it to a 3D Modeling guy in town. 3D work is very processor intensive. He did it on his Mac Book Pro which is a 2 core Duo processor runnng at 2.6 GHz. So we may have been able to render it faster on our tower.

Here in Dallas where there are several movie/animation shops, there are companies set up to just to render stuff like this with 20 Mac Towers tied together. They can do it faster but it cost a pretty penny.
