Every week or two weeks, we had to produce a new or extended 3D set for the animated sequences of the series. We set a goal of 6 seconds per frame render time, and achieved it in most cases. This was a requirement of the rediculous schedule that the show required to keep, but it made for some very creative use of pre-lighting, and matte painting (Big thanks to 2D artist Megan Crisp).
