Sunday Flashback #31

Published:  March 23, 2014    Category:  General,    Published by:  GriT  
My bad on last week's Sunday Flashback everyone...because it was not entirely accurate, that story behind the shirt. You know why? Because at A|W, we were given waaaaay too many shirts (not complaining, just stating a fact) and I got the "Imagination" shirt mixed up with the shirt that we were given to wear, to shoot that photo of everyone on the 6th floor deck from the top down (we stood in a human formation of the Alias logo.. black shirts/ring on the outside, red shirts/red ball in the center). The "Imagination" shirt was given out some time afterwards...going to have to pin-point when and dig it out, wherever the hell it is. In the meantime, here are some post-Alias|wavefront-SGI-divorce photos showing the brand new "Alias" logo on our building.

Sunday Flashback #30

Published:  March 16, 2014    Category:  General,    Published by:  GriT  
Here is the shirt that was created to celebrate our independence from SGI, upon which we would soon discover that we had been sold by SGI to the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan and Accel-KKR for $57.1 million. Everyone in the Toronto office was handed one of these shirts and we all went to the 6th floor deck for a group photo (have to find that picture one day...or just borrow the one hanging in the office), signed by all present at the time. Needless to say, we were all wondering what was going to happen with the Teacher's Pension Plan...a group that has no clear history or vested interest in software/technology field (asides from the interest in getting a return, which they certainly did). And surely our fears and doubts were put to rest... when the announcement came that Autodesk had bought us about one year later, because holy shit that was news we would have never expected. How could one company possibly own two of the biggest 3D applications on the market? Apparently it was quite possible...and not only 2 but 3 actually.

Sunday Flashback #29

Published:  March 09, 2014    Category:  3D Graphics, General, Software,    Published by:  GriT  
We are breaking from norm with this week's Sunday Flashback, and dedicating it to the sad announcement of EOL for Softimage, which was made public earlier this week from Autodesk. While our roots are predominantly with Alias|wavefront + Maya, we did have the chance to use Softimage in the late 90s...because the reality is, most of us who have been working with 3D have touched a myriad of other 3D applications - whether it was LightWave, Softimage, Power Animator or 3D Studio Max. Here is a screenshot of Softimage that we recall, along with a few photos and reading material.

Sunday Flashback #28

Published:  March 02, 2014    Category:  General,    Published by:  GriT  
This week’s Sunday Flashback is the Art of Maya book! Some of you may recall this book, first published in October 2000, to be either a nice coffee table art book or a serious failure in terms of being an actual learning book… you know, to learn how to do shit in Maya with. The latter, it definitely was not. But it was an aesthetically pleasing book which gave a high-level overview into the many facets of 3D and the surrounding fundamental principles around modeling, animating, texturing, lighting, rendering and so on. What made this book stand out was the fact that it was the first book of its kind, released by the Alias|wavefront Education team. You gotta remember that any sort of book published at the time for 3D, were pretty much black and white text-heavy books with the occasional image - the majority of these being software manuals.

Pepakura Designer

Published:  February 25, 2014    Category:  2D Graphics, 3D Graphics, General, Software,    Published by:  GriT  
Pepakura Designer allows you to create paper craft models from 3D data. Pepakura Designer is developed in Japan and has been translated to English. This software is open to the public as shareware so you can download and try it freely although some advanced features are limited until you purchase a license key. Pepakura Designer does not contain software to create the original 3D models, but instead translates them to a 2D printable format. Pepakura supports some 3D file formats from software such as 3ds Max, LightWave and Softimage. Pepakura also supports files in the freeware format from "MetasequoiaLE".

Sunday Flashback #27

Published:  February 23, 2014    Category:  3D Graphics, General, Hardware,    Published by:  GriT  
As you know, Alias|wavefront was birthed by SGI in 1995 after the acquisition of Toronto's Alias Research and Santa Barbara's Wavefront Technologies. Back in its heyday, Silicon Graphics Inc. was the gold standard in high-end computer hardware for 3D graphics computation (IRIX supported 64-bit architecture since 1994...which Windows and Mac OS got not too long ago) and they were the overlords to everything under the A|W roof (Maya, StudioTools and the myriad of software research that went on). With that, we dedicate this week's flashback to SGI, now largely defunct (ok, officially defunct since 2009 but the name is still in use).
