Lightwave 6.0 for sgi demo

Unread postby mis » Tue Jun 10, 2003 2:44 am

Hye there

ive been using lightwave XX on pc and amiga for meny years
both as freelance hobbyist and pro.

i resently bought an sgi o2 just for the fun of it, every 3d dude have to dream about sgi, and o2 is a nice little mashine to get to know the sgi base system on.

so ofcause i also looked for lightwave 3D for sig since i know it exists.
however, the newest version your gonna find for sgi is 5.6 and none above. i know there have been a few posts about a 6.0 demo but i have what i know of never been released for sgi.

i have the 5.6 demo version that is avalible on SGI HOTMIX 19 or 16

if you look under software on this page you will se we have talked about it before

thow i would say that lightwave 5.6 on my o2 is far from a dream, but again - i had to check it out :)

what sgi are you on ?

Best regards

MIS

PS: if lightwave is your favorite 3d app i gues your allready running it on pc or mac, so , do you have an online gallery with your work i can see ?
Best regards

Newtek stopped supprting IRIX after 5.6.

The Hotmix cd's can be often found on ebay.

The hotmix cd's are demo-ware of IRIX applications.

The lightwave 5.6 demo can be found on the Hotmix #19 CD.

Hope this helps

I recently discover I own the Hotmix #19 CD, only it appears to be unreadable from IRIX. On my NT machine, it loads some bizzare script.

Any clues y'all?

You're right; inserted the disc in my O2 and was rewarded with a cymbal crashing sound and the message that the disc could not be mounted. I suspect that the hybrid ISO file system is confusing later versions of IRIX.

I was able to mount the CD under MacOS X with no problem (I can see that it does have an AUTORUN.INF file for Windows - though you'd probably want to turn off CD autorun on your Windows machine since that is a virus/trojan vector). The Lightwave tardist is located under html/vendors/newtek/lightwave.tardist

I've been using Lightwave since it came out for the Amiga as part of the Video Toaster package. LW 5.6 runs pretty good on the SGI boxes, though I don't recommend you use an SGI for rendering (pretty darn slow, at least on my boxes). Screamernet is a part of LW 5.6 but I haven't yet tried it with network rendering using PCs as render slaves. Has anyone tried this? If not, I may give it a shot this weekend.

with reading CD's- I found that when I ugraded Irix to 6.5.20f I was able to read a wider range of formats than before. I know it was documented that support was added for DVD. I found that stuff I had burnt on 'nerdo', forgetting to set the ISO format, was workable again.
It may be worth cheching that cd again when you have 6.5.20 running?

No dice with 6.5.21f - but an interesting piece of info. Thanks, I'll need to try it on an OS X machine.

On a Windows machine, holding down the shift key should bypass the autorun issue. Learned that on Slashdot today :)

Reviving an old topic, sorry. I have Hotmix 17 and 19 and both are unreadable on my Octane2 with 6.5.22 Irix. I can't believe official SGI dists CDs are unreadable on their own machines ! Is there a trick to make it work ?

I'm sure someone has tried to do this and has precise instructions, but I would try to turn off automounting (maybe kill the automount daemon) and then force it to mount from the shell. by using mount -t efs /dev/dsk/dks0d5s6 /CDROM
or something like that, you should be able to do it.
