Re: 3Delight unearthed (Renderman Compliant)

Still haven't had a chance to play with this yet BUT, at work this week I did find a few items of use. Since 3Delight depends on a RIB file being created elsewhere we have to get one of the apps available on Irix to export RIB files. Since Pixar isn't handing out licenses for Renderman Artist Tools ...

3Delight unearthed (Renderman Compliant)

So I bugged the 3Delight team to see if they had any builds left from the Irix days. They said they had one... still on the webserver. I am at work now, but am leaving here to download to my 400 mhz later. If anyone wants to untar/ungz it and examine.. please feel free. Its not a maya plugin so I am...

Re: For Sale: SGI Octane 300MHz 512MB SI Graphics 36GB HDD

Not worried in the slightest. ;)

It'll get here when it gets here. I am quite busy anyways. So, let the parts come and tackle it at your convenience. 8-)

Re: SGI Origin 200 Server Promo Wind Up Toy [ not mine ]

I am finally going to be firing up my o200 pretty soon. Going to have the tech guy here (used to set up SGI for companies... and at Digital Domain) setup the Octane, o2, and o200 to network. The o200 has all the drive bays filled except one has an empty sled. Hopefully I can use it as a render node....

Re: WTB: Octane drive sled

Yeah, these things are rare. I saw a couple Octane drives paired together for $15 last week. I thought to myself... hmmm. I bet people value the sleds they are in more than the 9GB drives still left in them.

My O200 has sleds that fit in an Octane I hear. Going to find out soon.

Re: Maya Irix Software Render scene

the irix default gamma is 1.7. however, if you have a vpro setting the gamma to the same value as windows has does still not make it look the same. 1.7... ah hah.... That would explain why cutting it by .4545 isn't making it the same as it usually does with 2.2. Honestly surprised how far ahead of ...

Re: Maya Irix Software Render scene

Notice how your render appears darker when you look at it on a windows machine? I think it is due to the fact that SGI was viewing the color corrected sRGB or 2.2 gamma space as a default. I opened the image up on a windows photoshop and sure enough it looks gamma 1.0. So I sRGB corrected it a repos...

Re: Sidefx Houdini 6 apprentice

Oh man, that is a bummer. I am working a gig in Santa Monica and the systems guy used to set up systems at locations for SGI and says he could setup a few things for me. Houdini was one of the items on the list since they had setup the oldest license to work in Irix. :/ I think I'll write them and a...

Re: OCTANE Demos recorded.

OH, thank you, even though I have been through his site a bit I had somehow missed that section.

:)

Which also reminds me.... that I should write Ian and ask if he has the board already as he probably has one that I need not worry if it works.

Re: OCTANE Demos recorded.

I was looking into getting the personal video option. I saw a couple on ebay and was worried that buying one without software would make it useless. Is there software on the neko repository to use it in case it doesn't come with a disc? Here... https://www.ebay.com/itm/100-test-SGI-OCTANE-030-1156-0...

[RESOLVED] o2 not able to get online anymore.

My 300mhz o2 has suddenly stopped being able to get on the web. It was able to get on any network I hooked it up to. Never seemed to have to mess with it. The 400mhz o2, on the other hand, has to always be setup to look for the specific IP that I hook up to. Any time I move it to a new network I hav...

Softimage Irix Mental Ray

Here is a scene I built in Softimage 3.9.2 on the 400mhz o2. It is a bit indulgent even for the 400mhz cpu. I made a half res scene file with a bit lower render settings so it wouldn't go long on slower machines. It took like 20 minutes on the 400mhz o2 at higher Mental Ray settings min/max 0-2 AA w...
