thought you might find this interesting. no direct SGI talk but plenty of evidence of what they used.

the article describes the wireframe screeny as "A view of the Draco model inside Softimage." but that's wrong. this is alias v5 or older.

Cool article, great to see how this was made, makes sense that the team who did Jurassic Park had a hand in this as well.

Dragonheart was a great movie, I remember liking it more than Jurassic Park, but I guess it didn't do as well at the box office at the time.
