Connecting Win7 to irix machines.

Since I will be recording desktop captures soon with the Octane shipping here in the upcoming week I have been doing some prep trying to connect the win7 machine (my 8 core xeon setup) with the o2s. I did a search on Nekochan and saw the posts about Samba and using NFS in windows. So I did start up ...

Re: Obtaining licenses for old software

Snagged a Maya 3 Irix disc (Unlimited and complete) off Ebay this morning. $20. :D The 300mhz o2 has aw.dat entries for 3 and 4 even though there was no Maya 3 or 4 installed or any awdist folders in the BU folder. So I am hoping this disc will let me install it and the current aw.dat entries work. ...

Re: Obtaining licenses for old software

Oh jeez, there is a Pixar folder with many versions of Renderman Artist Tools and Renderman Studio. The holy grail of Render setups at the time. :shock: :shock: :shock: BUT.. it looks like its for Maya 3 and 4 only.. based on the *.so files it installed. . :/ No maya 3 or 4 on this computer.. or at ...

Re: Softimage Tutorial #1

it didn't. however for si3d there was softman from animal logic and 3delight was quite popular with xsi. Oh wow, Animal Logic. Totally forgot about them. When I was working in Venice CA in the 90s I think they had a local office nearby. They did stuff for the Matrix if I remember correctly. Softman...

Re: Obtaining licenses for old software

Found a bunch more stuff on the 300mhz o2 I bought from Ebay in 2009. There was a little "BU" folder in the people directory. It has a whole slew of stuff. I did have Softimage and Maya 6.5 already So I tried installing the maya 1.0 and maya 5 in the backup folder. They have awdist folders...

Re: Softimage Tutorial #1

I have never been a big fan of Blender. I try it here and there every three or so releases. It never quite feels elegant. It has quite good capabilities though, but after Maya and Softimage, and much later modo... the UI always feels clunky to me. Though, like I said, the feature list is pretty good...

Re: Softimage Tutorial #1

Thanks, :) I will do more on Softimage and am also going to be doing a Maya series as well. I hope to create more vids for all the 3d apps on Irix. I was playing with Ayam3d... very tricky... but also simple in scope. It also has a RIB generator so you can export to Renderman compliant renderers. I ...

Softimage Tutorial #1

https://youtu.be/n7LbwS_Dqiw Here is the first of hopefully many SGI Irix based 3D application tutorials I am going to create. Eventually they will be properly edited with titles and quick keys on screen as I use them. This first one was just to do something in the meantime for fun to test drive the...

Re: Softimage Irix Mental Ray

for a screencast with an octane you don't need a video board. I mean, I can capture vid on the o2 as well but I can't get the full screen. Only like 720x486. Otherwise,... even if I set low framerate... it never successfully captures. If I can capture a full screen.. at even 10 fps... on the Octane...

Re: Softimage Irix Mental Ray

I am going to upload a basic one today. It's about a half hour. I want to do a bit more of a produced... titles and screen text showing keys I am pressing, etc version. That I will save for the Octane with desktop capture when I get a personal video option. At the moment I just recorded a vid with m...

Re: [CraigList] Indigo2 Purple and VW320 local Los Angeles.

Yeah, I asked about drives and he said no drives. First thing I thought was... I don't even know where I'd get a sled for the Indigo2. Maybe Ian has them. But there are none on Ebay. I love the old Indigos and Indys but since I am a 3D fx guy I can't really render with these little boxes very fast i...
