We have been asked about the render stats, so here are a few figures. The 2 min 30 seconds short animation has a total of 3600 frames which were rendered by 90 servers working in parallel. Motion blur took a toll on render times, causing the longest frame to count over 10 server-days in render time (which were finished in approximately 13 hours).
