Re: SGI IRIX and computer graphics currently? What that should i use ?

I know :( I'm sorry. But he was PMing me constantly asking these stupid questions. It's annoying and invasive >:( When I happily think it's one of y'all.

Re: SGI IRIX and computer graphics currently? What that should i use ?

I'm usually a "sit in the corner with a smoke and coffee, watching the action at a distance" sort. I try and be nice to everybody, ### REDACTED FOR ETIQUETTE ###. And don't PM me again with stupidity. SGIs are HOBBY machines. I like making 3D stuff on them as a HOBBY. SoftImage is a great ...

Re: [FOR SALE] Macintosh IIci

I think I may know someone who wants it. He's doing alot of LISP stuff, and there is something special about the Iici for that purpose. I think it's the Iici anyway. Lemme ask him.

Re: SGI IRIX and computer graphics currently? What that should i use ?

I like IRIX and SGI, but you need to lay off the hard drugs man. I'm pretty sure some SGI engineers were doing alot of Molly when they designed their machines. They beg to be touched. But yeah, seriously. I love IRIX. It's still the most rock solid *nix I've ever used. But my SGI machines sit behin...

Re: SGI IRIX and computer graphics currently? What that should i use ?

I think if you're starting out with CGI with no experience (like me), having an SGI is a good starting place since what was happening then, set the precedent for what's happening now. Plus the software is free-ish (if you don't mind doing nebulous things). I can't afford the $1400/yr subscription fo...

Jurassic Cats

So everyone knows when you say "SGI" what you _really_ meant to say was "Jurassic Park". So I submit to you....all the glorious SGI animation replaced with cats. http://cheezburger.com/2835461/they-replaced-jurassic-park-dinosaurs-with-cats-and-its-pretty-hilarious-12-photos?bypa...

Re: SGI IRIX and computer graphics currently? What that should i use ?

I own them, because, well I learned Unix on an SGI Indy and the first computer I ever bought myself was a used SGI Indigo from Reputable back in the day. I'm also a 90s kid, and remember the CGI of the 90s with fond memories. The last really amazing CGI film I've seen is Avatar. Granted, it wasn't d...

Re: SGI IRIX and computer graphics currently? What that should i use ?

Ohhhh.....Final Fantasy is such a beautiful film. It's rainy here so I should snuggle up and watch it.

I fully agree. They are more than capable for hobbyist uses, and you can get as ambitious as you want. I plan on learning SoftImage and Flame so I can make silly vaporware videos :p

Re: SGI IRIX and computer graphics currently? What that should i use ?

That's not why people do 3D with SGIs nowadays. The aim isn't to make 2018's blockbuster film. The graphics an SGI produces has a very unique look that really can't be replicated. Think Fight Club, or Jurassic Park. Just like other great graphics workstations in the past, such as Foonly or a Symboli...

Re: Yet another VFC compilation error post

Yeah. The guide I'm following recommends that, so I'm going to fidget with it and see if I can't get it to work right.

Re: Yet another VFC compilation error post

It still glitches when it does 3D graphics though :\ Need to tweak things I guess. Not sure what to tweak. It's a V6 board, and those are touchy.
