I know about Blender. Pretty cool application. Not one of my faves but quite capable none the less.
I've been doing CGI for a living since 1995. I've used Maya, 3dsmax, Softimage, Lightwave, modo, and all the specialist apps (zbrush, mudbox, realflow, etc) all the plugins (fumefx, rayfire, ICE, etc) as well as the render engines (Renderman, Mental Ray, vray, etc) to complete many projects over the years at different facilities.
My LinkedIn profile....
The whole goal of the new SGI machine is to recreate a workstation from the era as far as software is concerned. Though I may have to try out Blender on the current O2 just for a spin.
I just love Maya and Softimage culture and the entire CGI era of SGI from the 90s.
I got a few private messages from this thread which have lead me to a few options once I get a hold of an ideal O2.
Can anyone still get the 600MHZ O2 mods done? Is that still available or was that done by a specific person who doesn't do them anymore?
Thanks for any info.
