The official Alias training guide "Learning Maya 6: Rendering" says, on page 246, "The Hardware Renderer will allow you to output features like shadows, per-pixel Specular Highlights, Bump Maps, and reflections for materials," but according to this page "Maya Hardware Renderer is not supported on IRIX." :(
Project:
Temporarily lost at sea...
Plan:
World domination! Or something...
