Pixar settles lawsuit against Exluna

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.
