So I was trying to make a 30 second short animation, and it turned out to be a huge project. I had 30 stills in JPEG and SGI IMAGE format that I created in photoshop with a Wacom. I wanted to arrange them, set how long they are displayed, add some audio, and export. Perfect tool you would say is IRIX's built in MovieMaker. It worked great until it got up to about 25 images with audio and would crash, every time. Ok, fine, so I tried Adobe Premiere, FAIL, it crashed loading a single image, and then I figured I would try ShotMaker (supposedly a re-written MovieMaker), it would seem they removed still image support for some reason. So needless to say, that wasn't an option. What I ended up doing was arranging the images in MovieMaker, then exporting them as QuickTime, importing them into Premiere adding music, titles, and exporting them. But what a pain!!! I'm wondering I guess if there is a better way to arrange images for us as video. I am planning to do a much higher quality and larger project, this one was just messing around on a Thursday night as a proof of concept. I am using an at the moment, I was going to try the , but the drive took a crap the other night and I have to get IRIX on the new one still (don't have enough beer in the house to start the IRIX install..the first package dependency!).
Here is the end result just for lol's http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjHXS89ri3Y
Once you get the Octane2 up and running again, I wonder if you'll experience any of the same problems.
Nice little animation there!
Heh, made me laugh.

Do you like Combustion better than Shake? I think this is the first time I've heard that.
