Re: eBay: Indigo2 Impact R10000 from Pixar

Arg, he has an Octane2 with Pixar inv sticker for sell as well.

:/ man, I am betting there are renderman tools all over those things.

----EDIT-----

No, it says in questions that the drives were wiped before he acquired them. Someone else asked the Prman question too. ;)

Re: Introducing D1

Wait, does the Octane lyrics imply you did find a way to plug it into an Octane card cage?

;) :mrgreen:

Seriously though, I am pretty excited about this modern o2 biz.

win7 <-> Irix o2. Setup password?

EDITED--- deleted previous post.. Fixed myself... I have been trying to get win7 or irix to see the other for simple file downloads/copy between computers. After a bunch of fiddling around I can see my o2 in win7 but when I try to connect it asks for login and password. I do not use passwords on the...

Re: Houdini 5.5 Irix

I worked with Scott, who came up with the doc idea. He’s a great documentarian. We did the Mars underground too. The Ron Jeremy doc is a lot more heartfelt than people were expecting. I helped him with the title sequences. Dancing girl silhouettes and fonts etc. It was a pretty neat little doc. He d...

Re: Houdini 5.5 Irix

Yeah that’s me but, I did not make it. I have a long list of work. My profile is more complete on LinkedIn. Actually surprised to see an IMDb entry. What’s weird is we did Mars underground in 2003/2004 and it says 2007. Even though I’m sure it aired on a few first to market hd channels in 2005 :) th...

Re: Looking for O2 R5000

I bought a pristine r5k 180mhz o2 off ebay for $75. It s up in San Jose so I can't pick it up until my next visit to my family up in Santa Rosa. It is probably the best kept o2 I had ever seen so I bought it just for the case quality and thought I may run across a beat up r10/r12k system that I can ...

Fixing Irix partition on drive from network or boot drive?

I have a couple of disks for the Octane that were bootable at one point and no longer boot. They give an “execute format error. Autoboot failed.” With a string of numbers indicating the scsi slot they are in. My question is. Can I fix these boot sectors from a working boot drive in the Octane scsi 1...

Re: Houdini 5.5 Irix

Found the ad on youtube. Then realized I still had it in my linkedIn profile as well. Here is the ad I mentioned above. Light streaks made in Houdini 9 then output as bgeo sequence to 3dsMax for Vray. We were setting up Maya Vray for use in Tron Legacy and had no spare licenses in Maya to run so we ...

Re: Houdini 5.5 Irix

Oh. I meant Houdini version numbers. I have only seen those Houdini versions around. But yes. Even in cases where Irix os 4 — 6.5 would still determine rarity of use.

Re: Houdini 5.5 Irix

Yeah, even between 2013 and 2016 many of the tutorials left online became very version specific. Node names where changed or old nodes removed and replaced with new methodology. In this situation I know that people in Irix will most likely be running version 5, 5.5, 6, or 6.5.x I don’t know where yo...

Houdini 5.5 Irix

Finally was able to get a version of Houdini running in Irix. Oh what a long battle this was. Unlike the other applications I was never able to try Houdini until 2006 on windows. So the entire UI felt completely alien to me at first. After fiddling around I found out it isn't that different from mod...
