Re: What kind of camera

Using an iPhone is arguably ‘cheating’, too... or definitely less authentic, if that's the aim. To be fully authentic, you must acquire hardware that's simply too costly and big, not to mention fairly hard to come by used (or, again, affordably). Your best bet would be to procure a second-hand camco...

Re: What kind of camera

The editing capabilities of Spark/Effect/Flint, Flame and Inferno are limited compared to Smoke and Fire, needless to say, but you can definitely edit. In earlier versions editing is done on the Desktop and in the Play modules and in later versions of Flame and Fire you can also do more advanced edi...

Re: What kind of camera

You can do editing in Flame, too, probably better than under Première (considering its limitations, including the way it was ported to UNIX platforms at the time). Then there's also the impressive SGO Jaleo, but that doesn't really run too smoothly on an O2, even on one with maximum specifications. ...

Re: Irix quick Referance Sheet

This is an old thread (and that's an understatement), but the document in question is hard to find now and still quite useful.

Please let me know if I should share it, whoever might (still) be interested in it.

Re: Using NetBSD's pkgsrc on IRIX

rumble, that would indeed be interesting.

I've never tried pkgsrc for IRIX. What is the current situation? (Where can I possibly read more about it?)

Re: SALE: SGI Tezro 4x1Ghz / Lucid / VBOB / DmediaPro / Betacam Recorder / Wacom / Monitor + More! (EUROPE)

IIRC the DCD became unavailable at some point, and Discreet changed their setup to include an external DVI splitter box. It's in the IFFS setup manuals. Now I also remember having read about it, in later Flame and Smoke manuals (possibly around the “2007” releases). The workaround was peculiar, but...

Re: SALE: SGI Tezro 4x1Ghz / Lucid / VBOB / DmediaPro / Betacam Recorder / Wacom / Monitor + More! (EUROPE)

It does not come with a DCD. The system was originally used by NBC in the US. Unusual, especially for broadcast usage. Unless it was used for (e.g.) motion graphics and long-form editing... but still strange, considering the total cost, to have a DCD or not wouldn't seem like terribly much of a cos...

Re: [UK] DEC/Compaq/HP ATI 7500 PCI Graphics Card

Quite rare indeed and for this price very irresistible to some, I can imagine. These were, until fairly recently even (by various resellers), offered for around a thousand euros/dollars. Total insanity. I had one of these ‘original’ cards (which came with a DS15) and also some ‘generic’ ones, but I ...

Last chance: Get it for as low as € 50. Final offer before it's scrapped.

Re: FS/T: SGI IP53 dual-processor 700-MHz R16000 nodeboard (e.g. for a Tezro)

Just from looking at it I would have thought it was a quad by the cover sticker showing 4 cups and the 4 cpu solder pin whatchmacallits on the bottom. Well, yes, but I'm quite certain it's dual-processor only. (Unless I somehow overlooked that two were disabled somehow...) Does the dual cpu node bo...

WTB/T: High IMPACT-AA or Maximum IMPACT graphics board set

Looking for an SGI Indigo² High IMPACT-AA or Maximum IMPACT graphics board set and the latter preferably with at least one (4-Mbyte) TRAM module, as I already have one and need one more to reach the required amount of two.

As far as possible trades go, see this thread this thread.
