March 2000 SOFTIMAGE|3D 3.9 was the first release distributed via “the world wide web”.
The SOFTIMAGE|3D Version 3.9 release also represents a milestone for the company as it will be the first ever release that Softimage distributes to customers via the world wide web. Rather than waiting the customary 6-8 weeks that it takes for reproduction and shipping, customers under a valid support contract will be able to log on to the Softimage Support web site to download the software.
Marketing collateral for SOFTIMAGE|DS (from the Avid days).
I was originally hired at Softimage to be the lead writer on the DS documentation. That never happened. I sat around for months reading specs, going to meetings, and endlessly preparing doc plans, until I was drafted into doing some actual writing work on DKit. Then I moved on to the SOFTIMAGE|SDK, and I never did work on the DS docs, except for the DS|SDK.
In 2008, Stefan Rueffer (currently the Principal User Experience Designer for Softimage) from VCC Perfect Pictures produced this great demo showing his work with ICE.
