Re: Need a soft Image master

HI Luc-Eric, Yes, v7 is the last version, you're right. And if I recall correctly, part of SI|3D was embedded in XSI just for being able to import the scene files? There has already been some back and forth emails about the request made, and it will be interesting to see how much is retrievable. Now...

Re: Need a soft Image master

With a Softimage movie you mean a Softimage 3D project/scene right? If so, I don't think many of us have that still running somewhere. There was a time when earlier versions of Softimage XSI were able to open up the old format and convert it, but it was removed after the 3rd? version or so. Might be...

Re: Update to phpBB 3.2.1

Does the forum has a font size preference somewhere? I find the current size (10pt..?) a tad small, especially with large pieces of text.

It's my age dammit! I can't read properly anymore!! @-)

Re: RNDR

That is a good idea. btw anyone here is invested in ether currency? All the digital currency is still too 'Wild West' for me. The history, hacks, frauds, government regulation and convictions of the early 'settlers' doesn't give me a fuzzy feeling ;) Also, only a handful of people actually made mon...

Re: Any recommended sites for selling industrial design?

Maybe try to contact case builders, like Lian Li, Cooler Master or Antec and see what happens.

Out-side designers might be welcomed...

p.s. and be sure you have water-tight contract if you get in ;)

Nice one! :)

Always interesting to see how certain techniques can be translated to another 3d package.

cheers!

Re: Using SI-on-board and off-board rigged character

Like I said, and as myara said, there are solutions out there for what you need, unfortunately not for SI. Most of the (rigged) character stuff out there is for 3DSMax, as that is the 3D app of choice for most of the archviz work. Same goes for cars, greenery, pre-built scenes, furniture etc. etc. A...

Re: Using SI-on-board and off-board rigged character

There are some free 'people generators' to be found online, even with rigged results. But afaik there's nothing that can spit out something directly usable in Softimage. Max and Maya, yes. Even C4D. rob p.s. importing/exporting 'regular' stuff we use in 3D has always been the Achilles heel of SI, du...

Free ebook on photogrammity workflow - unity3d website

Found another photogrammetry nugget :) Have a look here: https://unity3d.com/solutions/photogrammetry It's geared towards getting your data into Unity, but uses a plethora of apps to get the work done. So basically it can be used for other engines like Unreal, Lumberjack, AD's Stingthingy etc. as we...

Nope.

They bought MASH, and it looks like it is becoming a odd mix of ICE-, Cinema4D- and Houdini-ish functionality.

Re: Maya 2018

In a perfect world Blender would clean up the UI, and -after being adopted by all big studios- becomes the standard of 3D, with new functionality development being shared. :ymdaydream: ;)

Re: Maya 2018

Yeah... Apparently it's hard to dedicated some of the dev group to fixing bugs, as new features are more important to the shareholders... err... users.... And yeah... If you ignore the bugs over the years, at some point these bugfixes will become a looong list. I still prefer SI over Maya any day. H...
