Realsoft 3D v5.1 for IRIX

Hi guys,

Just wanted to let you know that Realsoft have released v5.1 of Realsoft 3D for Irix.
The package is still Beta (same as the Linux version), but basically, this doesn't mean that it is any less stable, but it does mean that it lacks behind in release schedule than the Windows version.
The benefit is that a lot of the bugs found in the Windows version are fixed by the time the Irix release comes out, and that the Irix licence can also be used for the Linux version.

The Irix and Linux versions are also considerably cheaper.

If you want to find out about the features of v5, check out the following URL: http://www.realsoft.fi/news/v5/ and here: http://www.realsoft.fi/news/v5sp1/

Anyway, there is an 'eval' version available for download now (not time limited, but rendering res. limited) from here:
http://www.realsoft.com/updates/irix/packages/realsoft3d-5.1.25-beta-irix-mips.sh

Let me know if you encounter any problems.

Let me know if you like it as well. It would be good for Realsoft to know if anyone is interested in their keeping the Irix version going.
I'm helping out on that front (just minor aspects of the porting, so can't take credit for either the features or the bugs. :) ), and will keep doing that while there's interest, since I barely get to use it these days due to work commitments.

Nik.

Hello Nik...

I've downloaded the file to give it a try.

I'll need to fill any form to get the evaluation license, or this is included by default with the installer? I've not tried to install the package by now...

Thanks in advance!
Cheers! ;)

Hi Diego,

Just install it. No eval. registration required. On installation, when it asks for key, just leave empty.

It's nice, however I'm running into problems with incompatible libpng version: I have 1.2.15 in my library search path, but you have dynamically linked against 1.0.x. I think it is better to link against a static libpng, I suspect that many users have upgraded their shared libpng, and your version is pretty old. Apart from that, it looks really nice :-)

EDIT: actually, IRIX (6.5.22 at least) itself provides version 1.2.15

Thanks for that report.
I'll look into that.

Hello,

Can you please port Real3D to the Itanium as SGI doesn't give a shit about MIPS no more? Cheers.

Is that the only time it crashes, or are you seeing it crash in other situations as well ?
Can you tell me the spec of your Octane ?

I'll test this on my machine later this week. It wasn't a problem before, could be something that was introduced with this version.

I've installed realsoft 3D 5.1.26 beta, but when I wanna run it I've got Bus error due to an incompatible libpng version: I have libpng-1.2.8 and r3d required 1.0.15

Very nice app. I've tried today the Linux x86_64 version with Ubuntu AMD64 9.04. I'll give it a try to the IRIX version at some point.

Indeed, and it looks top quality!
I don't know how to use it for serious work, since I just know the basics, and I'm actually focussed to learn to use another app. But I'm interested since I think I have a use for this one too! :)

With a bit of luck, I'll have my IRIX box running again soon.

Hi,

I know that this topic is a bit old but seems that this link no longer works.

Did anyone download it? Or is a new link available?

Cheers
