Re: Softimage weirdness: Not registering mouse clicks

I'll have to fire up the o2. I did some poking around since Softimage native resolution doesn't display right on the sw1600. It was always justified left and I could see the irix desktop on the right but the mouse would not be able to go over to it. I'd have to minimize first. I found the config fil...

Re: Softimage weirdness: Not registering mouse clicks

Is it running full screen or does it only take up a portion of the screen? I had mine do both lose focus and not launch full screen. I had to adjust the config file to get full screen. Then I could press... f9 I think... to minimize and then click it again to maximize and it would be fine. Then I wa...

Re: Have any one seen any good anime lately?

If you like complex storyline anime like Akira/Ghost in the Shell then you will probably love Tekkon Kinkreet. It is my all time fave.

It is strange at first because it doesn't follow the usual anime look formula, but it is an amazing experience.

Connecting Win7 to irix machines.

Since I will be recording desktop captures soon with the Octane shipping here in the upcoming week I have been doing some prep trying to connect the win7 machine (my 8 core xeon setup) with the o2s. I did a search on Nekochan and saw the posts about Samba and using NFS in windows. So I did start up ...

Re: Obtaining licenses for old software

Snagged a Maya 3 Irix disc (Unlimited and complete) off Ebay this morning. $20. :D The 300mhz o2 has aw.dat entries for 3 and 4 even though there was no Maya 3 or 4 installed or any awdist folders in the BU folder. So I am hoping this disc will let me install it and the current aw.dat entries work. ...

Re: Obtaining licenses for old software

Oh jeez, there is a Pixar folder with many versions of Renderman Artist Tools and Renderman Studio. The holy grail of Render setups at the time. :shock: :shock: :shock: BUT.. it looks like its for Maya 3 and 4 only.. based on the *.so files it installed. . :/ No maya 3 or 4 on this computer.. or at ...

Re: Softimage Tutorial #1

it didn't. however for si3d there was softman from animal logic and 3delight was quite popular with xsi. Oh wow, Animal Logic. Totally forgot about them. When I was working in Venice CA in the 90s I think they had a local office nearby. They did stuff for the Matrix if I remember correctly. Softman...

Re: Obtaining licenses for old software

Found a bunch more stuff on the 300mhz o2 I bought from Ebay in 2009. There was a little "BU" folder in the people directory. It has a whole slew of stuff. I did have Softimage and Maya 6.5 already So I tried installing the maya 1.0 and maya 5 in the backup folder. They have awdist folders...

Re: Softimage Tutorial #1

I have never been a big fan of Blender. I try it here and there every three or so releases. It never quite feels elegant. It has quite good capabilities though, but after Maya and Softimage, and much later modo... the UI always feels clunky to me. Though, like I said, the feature list is pretty good...

Re: Softimage Tutorial #1

Thanks, :) I will do more on Softimage and am also going to be doing a Maya series as well. I hope to create more vids for all the 3d apps on Irix. I was playing with Ayam3d... very tricky... but also simple in scope. It also has a RIB generator so you can export to Renderman compliant renderers. I ...
