Post by cyborgen » 03 Jul 2017, 14:02

Was looking for information on Ice particle velocity

http://softimage.wiki.softimage.com/xsi ... eSpeed.htm

Anywhere I can read that old softimage wiki page or some Ice related documentation?

http://docs.autodesk.com/SI/2015/ENU/#! ... eSpeed.htm

It would seem Autodesk finally killed off the wiki without further notification (after explicitly stating they would keep it open) :-o

Great company. Case of right hand not knowing what the left is doing. At a minimum the right hand should have known that this is the case by now .. so..

better download the offline docs

Case of us still trusting anything Autodesk claims... 8-}

The wiki just has a copy of the official doc. The same one you get by pressing F1 in Softimage.

Autodesk should have deleted it from the wiki so that google doesn't keep indexing it and have it come up above the real doc. I guess google gives wikis higher page ranks.

Looks like now the official docs were deleted instead, can't reach them using the Softimage help menu at least

Edit: seems to have been a temporary glitch. Just checked both the docs and the sdk-docs appeared to be online again... (no idea how long this will last...) :-?

But downloading the offline-docs would be advisable to anyone who hasn't done so already: https://knowledge.autodesk.com/search-r ... ation.html

Ah I see, its url was changed. That break them if you want to access them work from inside XSI ... not a big issue anyway since offline help works just as well now.
