Pixar Animation Studios has settled its lawsuit against Exluna, makers of the Entropy rendering system. The settlement resolves all pending litigation and any other disputes between the two companies. Exluna, a privately-held software company specializing in software development technology for film quality graphics rendering, was charged with the misappropriation of trade secrets, copyright infringement and patent infringement.
In a separate announcement, NVIDIA has announced the acquisition of Exluna. The acquisition is part of NVIDIA's strategy to bring cinematic quality to real-time graphics and adds core engineering competency and intellectual property to its recently announced Cg (C for Graphics) strategy.
