Re: 3 Years a project.

Hi sgi-enthusiast, Time has somewhat passed since the original post, my setup has changed and I have neglected the video input side as I have been dealing with single frames taken from a cine8 scanner. Now, I had problems with Arrays, my A500 (StorEdge) was too noisy and my T3 (StoreEdge) was just u...

Re: win7 <-> Irix o2. Setup password?

How about NFS? Windows 7 is not as good as Windows Server or Windows 10 for being both client and server, but if you share from IRIX then you can mount on Windows 7. NFS has to be installed via Programs and Features --> Windows Features and is only a CLIENT. I doubt it's available on Windows HOME, b...

Re: Octane networking... just not working :o

Welcome back Stuart, good to see another UK user. Seems to me, you have to disable ef0 and reconfigure your tg0. I had a similar issue with a discreet system. You have set the tg0 as default and all settings point correctly I presume. Now the question is.. what bloomin file did I edit to do so.. I w...

Re: your latest purchase

An HP Microserver Gen 8 with Xeon CPU and 16GB RAM. It's going to be my off-site backup server. Automated ZFS replication instead of lugging external disk boxes around :) I chose this one (2nd hand, 6 months old) because the brand-new Gen 10 model only comes with some AMD SOC which is way less powe...

Re: Things to buy....

Yeah, looks like the 1.2 version was ported to OSS, which I don't think anybody uses anymore, I think I have an earlier version IRIX binary stashed on my Sun at work (heresy, I know ;) ), I'll check when I drag myself in in the morning... Hey Vishnu, did you have any joy? I didn't have my old IRIX ...

Discreet image import.

I'm having a problem converting MP4 movie files into something that discreet smoke/flame will recognize. Using import image the files are visible, but all my conversions are not recognized. When Discreet talk about importing images, they mean both single frame type pictures and movie files. The supp...

Re: Using a 1600SW on an Octane?

I’m trying to figure this one out too. I think one of the video cards can output dvi And that would get you to the multilink. But as far as 13w3 to dve I think it would require a special cable. I see something like it on Ian’s website but it costs $50 and says “rare”. Know that I am looking for a w...
