South Park Studios:

On Wednesday March 11, 2009 at 10 pm EST South Park goes HD. We are really excited because, not only will the season premiere be in HD, but we have been working hard for over a year re-rendering previous seasons in native HD. We are not up-converting the episodes, but actually going into each episode and re-rendering every shot and frame at true HD.

South Park hasn’t been made with actual construction paper for years. The studio uses a sophisticated rendering farm with tools like Maya and Motion (made on Macs, of course). And recent seasons have been far more visually stunning. The jump to HD is great news and will make the show look even better.
