It takes 1-5 years to render a computer-animated movie!

/*--- holy mAcar00ns!! --- */

I was taking a look at Blender and was curious about CG rendering in general, and what the budget would be for making a computer-animated movie. In particular I was wondering about the rendering expense. I looked at the Wikipedia article on computer-animation and found that it takes 1-5 years to render a movie!!

A large number of workstations (known as a render farm) are networked together to effectively act as a giant computer. The result is a computer-animated movie that can be completed in about one to five years (this process is not comprised solely of rendering, however).

Wow, that's a long time!
