Re: What kind of camera

To do an SGI proud you should go pro. That means SDI ports either via an adapter such as the U2 for the PVO or O2 or the DM2 capture cards. Then get a DigiBeta camcorder and off you go. Not cheap but you feel like a TV pro :)

Re: WTB Softimage|3D 4.0 Manuals

Reason I ask.. Inside SOFTIMAGE 3D by Anthony Rossano is a good book. Seems to be the recommended read and still easily available. I disagree. I bought SI¦3D 4.0 back when I was working on an Octane and instead of proper manuals it came with that book. It was godawful - tons of typos, workflows cop...

I believe sky only bought the iPad because he can run Linux on it:

Can you please PM me your exact address? I may be interested as my brother lives in Vienna which is not too far from Prague. Do you have any software that comes with those machines?

You might want to read through this thread before deciding - all three of your questions are discussed: http://forums.nekochan.net/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16724118& That just cured me of any temptation. The only interesting thing would have been to run graphical Irix-software in QuickTransit bu...

Oops, my bad...maybe the drivers on HP's support site for the zx2000/zx6000 may work (since it is a similar machine)?

Other than that there is always Supportfolio but I deactivated my account after having divested all my SGI gear.

Re: SGI Prism for Sale in London

Given the fact that no additional components and no hard disks are included as well as no guarantee is given that the machine actually works beyond powering up makes me reluctant to pay more than £100 for it - you may just buy an expensive doorstop. I am not sure you can even get all the software ne...

SGI Prism for Sale in London

While browsing through Gumtree I came across this ad for a "SGI Prism Server" even though it looks like the deskside to me: http://www.gumtree.com/london/53/69885753.html Seems to have the lowest processors but the highest gfx spec. Would not pay £500 as no accessories apart from a power c...

Cutting WMV and Converting FLV on Mac

Hi all, Are there tools similar to the PC-only AviSynth/VirtualDub combination that enables simple cuts in different video files (wmv, avi, mpg) without having to re-encode the entire video file? I have a bunch of clips I just want to cut and (given they have the same resolution) join but I am not k...

Re: iMac thoughts?

I got myself a top-of-the-line 27" iMac with the i7 processor and an Intuos4 graphics tablet. No issues so far (but then I followed the advice on the Apple boards and reinstalled everything fresh after formatting the harddisk proper before even using it for the first time). My neighbour was so ...
