Here's an interesting one. The Muppets returned to cinemas this week, just in time for Thanksgiving, but it seems as if those responsible for making the movie have more than just set designers and puppeteers to thank. NVIDIA evidently chipped in on the product, with some serious GPU horsepower making the magic come together. Look Effects, a Los Angeles visual effects house, relied on NVIDIA GPUs for visual effects -- in particular, the Quadro graphics card was used to render and composite each scene.
Sure, it's a bit of a pat-on-the-back for NVIDIA, but who can resist learning more about The Muppets? Have a look at the vid below.
