Re: exit Stephen Blair?

ok, so before people start finger pointing and/or accusing Autodesk of singling out/repressing Softimage, I would like to point that, that the recent layoffs have affected many locations, divisions, and departments. No one in particular seems to have been singled out. Now, whether you believe me or...

Re: exit Stephen Blair?

What's that... oh, it's the sound of the clock ticking on Softimage's lifespan.

Seems more likely than ever now.

That said, I really hope that the "bad feeling" that I have is completely wrong and that this is just a "knee jerk" reaction.

:-(

I'm gutted to learn of this news...it's really sickening. My dislike for Autodesk is at an all time high.

Re: bring back softimage.net

While you both agree (Joe and Eric) on the Area being upgraded, from a users perspective it makes sense. I post this so hopefully you'll understand some of the recent events and give you a unemotional business perspective on the issue. I'd like to point out that from Autodesk's or any Business's pe...

Re: bring back softimage.net

So chiming in here rather late as I've been on vacation for the last few weeks. Some words of wisdom / warning. Creating a new site run by 1-2 people that doesn't return a significant monetry amount will surely lead to the sites failure. I'm talking from experience. That is mainly why XSIDatabase i...

Re: Looks like Autodesk bought Naiad

I was a very early CAT adopter. In the early days it provided a welcome alternative to Max's biped. That said, it has always had a LOT of problems, a lot. To this day it still has heaps of issues. Autodesk has tried to sort some of these problems out, yet many problems still remain and I seriously d...

Re: Cinema 4D r.13 announced

One thing that should not be overlooked regarding C4D is that it has a very, very, powerful connection with Adobe After Effects which is pretty awesome. Myself, I like C4D a lot and I think that Maxon does a great job. Mind you, I will not be switching from Softimage to C4D anytime soon, but I do th...

Re: Normal Map from Zbrush to XSI - How?

SOLVED!!! OK, the solution to my problems was really, really simple... I feel like an idiot. For anyone who is having similar difficulties the solution that I found was to use the Bump Generator node in XSI and NOT to use the XSINormalMap3 node when trying to get normal maps created with ZBrush to r...

I think Zbrush4 does this automatically , where previous versions didn't.
Yeah, I think I did... I'll have to re-check that. Thanks for the tip!

Joe, did you try XGoZ addon? XGoZ I'll watch out for more normal map transfer info and post if I find something. Hi! No, I've not tried that. BTW - Thanks for the letting me know about these tools, both look really cool. The thing is that I've been supplied with project files by someone who normall...

Normal Map from Zbrush to XSI - How?

Hi, Does anyone here know how to create a normal map in ZBrush 4 that can be imported into XSI/Softimage and will render "correctly" with mental ray? I have asking all over the place for help in trying to find out how to create normal maps within ZBrush 4 that can be used with XSI/softimage and ment...
