Custom VFOs

I have a Dell E1909W monitor connected up to my Octane whose native resolution is 1440x900@60Mhz, and used these ( http://forums.nekochan.net/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16725755&hilit=1440x900#p7343589 VOF files, and they work, except there is the occasional glitching and flickering, which is kinda...

Re: Softimage weirdness: Not registering mouse clicks

Yeah. I may have to do that. This LCD, I have the optimal resolution on (1440x900), but it flickers every once in a while and I'm not sure why. :\ *looks at SI's supported resolutions*

Re: Softimage weirdness: Not registering mouse clicks

That's so weird. I have these nice Acer LED monitors, and SI scales just fine on them on my O2s. So I guess for the time being, I can do SI work on my O2s and just render it on the octane. IDK.

Re: Softimage weirdness: Not registering mouse clicks

So I found this: http://forums.nekochan.net/viewtopic.php?t=16727865 The problem is the monitor on my Octane is only 1280x720 (it's actually 1440x900, but my vPro6 doesn't support that). Softimage is launching larger than the screen resolution. There is an environment variable (SI_SCREENRES) you can...

Re: Softimage weirdness: Not registering mouse clicks

YAY! :D I'm SO looking forward to your tutorials :D

Where do the config files live so I can poke around. I don't think it's starting in fullscreen now that you mention it.

Re: Softimage weirdness: Not registering mouse clicks

I don't know. Whatever settings are default for 6.5.30. I don't have any windows open when I launch SI :\

It's definitely a window focus thing because when I click the "Set Database" window, it goes grey, but if I click outside the window, it gets it's focus back, until I click it.

Softimage weirdness: Not registering mouse clicks

I installed Softimage on my Octane, and when I launch it, it has the database creation window that comes up, but it won't let me click "Create" or "Continue". It won't even let me re-focus the window. I have no clue how to fix this.

Any ideas/help?

Re: Your most prized hardware

All my SGIs, really. I just got an Octane 2, but it needs a new power supply (thank-you UPS), but when I get that going, I think that will be my most prized SGI.

When the weather outside is frightful, and the Cray is so delightful. Since we have nowhere to go. Let's simulate fluid flow, fluid flow, fluid flow :p

Re: Softimage Tutorial #1

Great tutorial! :D Nice and basic, which is what I need. I have a mental illness, and the medications have killed my creativity (which is kinda important if you're a graphics geek). I used to be very creative. So my psychiatrist wants me to do simple creative things to strengthen those creative neur...

Re: What kind of camera

This hasn't been a high priority. I've been doing other SGI-ish things. Plus I need a camera that can output to a supported format. I have my iPhone, and I could convert video files to MPEG or something, but that's kinda cheating.
