Re: Obtaining licenses for old software

Its very difficult. I only look for software on Ebay that contains the serial number with the discs/boxes. I bought a Max Vray dongle back in 2008 for half price. Chaosgroup said they didn't honor transfers back then. Had to buy a full license after all to get my own dongle but did say I could trans...

Re: SoftImage 3D 4.0 Install Help ?

I thought that the company was initially sold to Microsoft? It was only later that Autodesk started acquiring every graphics SW in sight. Yes, this is correct. It was sold to Microsoft. Then to Avid.. where it stayed for a while. Then was sold to Autodesk right after 6.0 and ICE was established. I ...

Re: SoftImage 3D 4.0 Install Help ?

Softimage on Irix was quite amazing at the time. The mental ray integration was very nice by the 3.x.x era... BUT.... XSI was much better. The UI was far more elegant and the hotkeys and Keyboard/Mouse usage did improve quite a bit... no more need to hold spacebar(selection toggle on/off) just to se...

Re: [Ebay]Yet another Mytery Tezro? (not mine)

Whah? I am in the Marina Del Rey, if you are in Hollywood I can grab them pretty easy. Only thing is I can't really buy them until Dec 8th. If they are gone by then I guess I am out of luck. BUT... if not I can come through. ---EDIT---- Reread it this morning. Maybe Ian should get them. I don't thin...

Re: Softimage Irix Mental Ray

Ok, I finally tried to download the previous file. It was only a scene description. I have uploaded a zip that has a tar file in it. That will contain the Softimage folder structure that it needs to open the scene file. I am pondering doing a very basic Softimage Tutorial captured with my phone befo...

Re: o2 not able to get online anymore.

Hmm, Nevermind. I am posting from the 300Mhz now.... I ran through the Start network setup one more time.... Instead of "leaving it unchanged" I said to use this one.... but left the same 192.168.1.1 Then instead of IP forwarding I turned that off.. Turned on NIS. Then after reboot.... som...

Re: o2 not able to get online anymore.

This morning on regular boot it says it couldn't configure the ec0. usually it doesn't error out there but this time it did. Maybe the hardware is just bad? I could buy one of those $15 network cards on ebay. I have successfully setup my 400mhz o2 at three different places just by running proclaim a...

Final Fantasy Movie SGI, Maya, and Renderman.

Interesting article from Ars Technica about Square using hundred plug SGI machines to produce Final Fantasy movie in 2000. Maya with Renderman was the primary pipeline. They speak of using Onyx and Origins as well as many Octane's as workstations. http://archive.arstechnica.com/wankerdesk/01q3/ff-in...

Re: o2 not able to get online anymore.

I am wondering why it is 192.168.1.255 instead of the .192.168.1.1 OR even 109. I had success with 1 through 9 before as the last digit. Like, I am trying to figure out why I see the 255 in the gateway list. Also.. what does.. "link#1" mean?

Both of these entries pertain to ec0

Re: How can we encourage better group participation on this site?

I understand all the points made. My goal wasn't to stop using the Nekochan page as a primary hub... but rather, use Facebook, Instagram, etc etc... as gateways to here. There are all the great YouTube vids on SGI. They could be compiled into a pinned post here or a subsection on the Neko main menu ...

Re: How can we encourage better group participation on this site?

My interest in SGI was and always has been the fact that I began doing CGI, VFX, 3D Animation in 1995 and have made a living at it ever since. They were out of my reach back in the 90s personally. I wanted the Octane and an o2 and an Origin 200. Wanted so badly to be able to learn Softimage, Power A...

Re: o2 not able to get online anymore.

Finally had a moment to look at my 300mhz network issue last night. It has some strange error when I run proclaim from the terminal. Here is the Terminal when I ran a few of the commands suggested. It says the gateway is linked? In the settings it is set to the 192.168.1.1 Gateway. And yes the compu...

Re: 3Delight unearthed (Renderman Compliant)

Still haven't had a chance to play with this yet BUT, at work this week I did find a few items of use. Since 3Delight depends on a RIB file being created elsewhere we have to get one of the apps available on Irix to export RIB files. Since Pixar isn't handing out licenses for Renderman Artist Tools ...

3Delight unearthed (Renderman Compliant)

So I bugged the 3Delight team to see if they had any builds left from the Irix days. They said they had one... still on the webserver. I am at work now, but am leaving here to download to my 400 mhz later. If anyone wants to untar/ungz it and examine.. please feel free. Its not a maya plugin so I am...
