No sense in messing around with simple "home" computers. You need real power, and even power to spare. Animation is a demanding job for any computer, might as well get one that's up to the task. It's heartbreaking to put in a days work in animation just to have the show suffer from jerky movement and dropped frames, those are things that can be humiliating to a expert like yourself. Why be the laughing stock of your competitors? Get a real computer that does more than play games with you.
You can own a computer made by a world-renown supercomputer maker, have it fully stocked with options, and still stay within budget. Yes, I'm talking about a genuine CRAY® CX-1 workstation, with emphasis on "work."
This little hummer will be the envy of all your neighbors. It comes stock with Windows HPC Server 2008 and 16 Gigabit Rj-45 ports so you can send your material to hundreds of un-witting recipients in a matter of seconds! Scalable animated vector graphics mixed with plotted, multi-layered transparencies are are child's play for this thing. Animation is what this behemoth dreams about doing. Who needs direct-x when you can perform bit-mapped graphics easily with this thing that are faster than Direct-X 11! No matter how crappy you may be as an animation engineer, the power of this machine will more than make up for it! You'll look like a true "Pro" in no time! So get one now before it's too late! Your competition is looking at getting a few of these just to stay ahead. You can beat them at their own game if you get yours first.
Remember, with a Cray Computer, Youare the weakest link.
