Not to forget that XSI is dog slow on IRIX - no need to bother with it unless you absolutely have no choice.

Maya 4.0 runs nice on a R10k@250 Octane. However, rendering speed is not so nice ;)

The R4000 is running at 50 Mhz externally and 100 Mhz internally. No need to worry, you do have a R4000@100 Mhz ;)

Thanks a lot for the yafray build and bringing it back to my mind... judging by the pictures in the gallery, it really seems some active development was done since I looked the last time :)

If it really works that good with blender, it's time to finally learn that strange GUI ;)

you could take the 656 output from a DVD player or DVB receiver and plug it directly into the Moosecam port without going serial and back.


I can't say I understand that completely (how does a 656 output from a DVD player look like?) but it's a great starting point, thanks!

O2 camera port

I wonder if it would be possible to hack the O2 digital camera port to connect something else than the moosecam? I found close to nothing about this on the net so far, but I'd find it pretty cool to have another (higher quality) video source available, especially when using the O2 live.

Any ideas?

BMRT and entropy are dead, sadly. Praise Steve for that. There are other Renderman compliant renderers available on IRIX, I'll dig out some links later, if anyone's interested. Pixar's Renderman Pro Server does not list IRIX as a supported platform, but I'm pretty certain it is available (as it is f...

yes, I forgot that you can't turn off SOG on the O2 (unlike many other SGI systems).

most standard PeeCee Monitors work with the O2, no need for a SOG-monitor.

this would be a cool idea - not only for recent IRIX freeware but also for stuff precompiled for 4.0x, 5.x and 6.2/3/4.

many ways ;) some are: ftp, http, nfs I personally use either http or nfs. If it should be just a solution you'll need from time to time, export a directory from your SGI and follow this: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=25344 to mount it quick & easy on you desktop. If it should b...

nope, that yellow thing that seems to be under the CPU is just a sticker with "GPD411" printed on it. The CPU is soldered directly to the board.

if you need closeups of something specific, let me know.

BTW, I just tried it out and the module works just fine.
