Exr the most polluting format in vfx and world history consumes more energy and resouces than any picture format
how much kw per hour does this format consume,
exr the most polluting format in vfx and world history consumes more energy and resouces than any picture format. its about time the vfx world realised how many servers, high end power guzzling gpus, computers, hard drives are continuosly
operated to maintain this 1970s style petrol guzzling v12 format, how many mb per frame, per version, how long did it take to render it, the amount of power used, and its continual access on storage.
the dirty petrol/coal/solar fume use of vfx…
sorry the exr format is starting to stink…its worse than plastic pollution… c/o all vfx companies
its a bit like petrol sniffing, we like the roar of the dragster strip, but honestly, an electric motor gocart
can go faster anyway these days, strip it down to the minimum moving parts required.
a laptop ssd 512gb harddrive …3mins rendered of exr animation 470gb.
who thought up this format,lets face it we are taking about a single pixel with only so many values,
how may of these values are really needed to get it there
i say this because nvidia seem to promote this as the only go to format for gpu rendering,
when we need the most compressed 90% quality real time format instead
