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 ...

Softimage Tutorial #1

https://youtu.be/n7LbwS_Dqiw Here is the first of hopefully many SGI Irix based 3D application tutorials I am going to create. Eventually they will be properly edited with titles and quick keys on screen as I use them. This first one was just to do something in the meantime for fun to test drive the...

Re: Softimage Irix Mental Ray

for a screencast with an octane you don't need a video board. I mean, I can capture vid on the o2 as well but I can't get the full screen. Only like 720x486. Otherwise,... even if I set low framerate... it never successfully captures. If I can capture a full screen.. at even 10 fps... on the Octane...

Re: Softimage Irix Mental Ray

I am going to upload a basic one today. It's about a half hour. I want to do a bit more of a produced... titles and screen text showing keys I am pressing, etc version. That I will save for the Octane with desktop capture when I get a personal video option. At the moment I just recorded a vid with m...

Re: [CraigList] Indigo2 Purple and VW320 local Los Angeles.

Yeah, I asked about drives and he said no drives. First thing I thought was... I don't even know where I'd get a sled for the Indigo2. Maybe Ian has them. But there are none on Ebay. I love the old Indigos and Indys but since I am a 3D fx guy I can't really render with these little boxes very fast i...

[CraigList] Indigo2 Purple and VW320 local Los Angeles.

https://losangeles.craigslist.org/sfv/s ... 17376.html

He said if I give him a fair price on the Indigo he'd throw in the VW320.

What is a fair price? I will be busy with an SGI project already soon. If anyone is interested maybe I can arrange pick up and shipping.

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...
