The Softimage KB on autodesk.com


Over the last few weeks I’ve been working on the Softimage KB at autodesk.com. I’ve also been working on Maya and Max KBs, as a reviewer.

Over the next few years we hope to see the KB become a big part of a more Web-based support community. For me, it feels a little bit like starting over; I think Softimage had a good start with the wiki and SOFTIMAGE|NET.

Here’s some of my recent KB articles:

  1. Im about to buy a softimage 7.5 or 2010 licens and a new computer to instal it on and Im woundering if there is anyone that has tryed softimage with a nvidia Quadro FX 580 card. I know that some cards can cause big problems. “The moneyframe” I have to spend on the grapichs card is within this limit so if the 580card is known to be truble maybe you know some other one? I need help fast as the productions is on hold for me. Thanks in advance!

  2. Softimage 2010 Crash when Reading ICE Cached Data!

    I just find a really bad bug in Softimage 2010, when I’m trying to load (read) Cached ICE Tree, Softimage Crashed!
    I have this problem in both Softimage 2010 32 & 64 bit.
