Friday Flashback #89

Courtesy of Ed Harriss, here’s some pics of the old SOFTIMAGE Creative Environment boxes. I haven’t seen one of these boxes since we moved out of the Softimage offices on St Laurent; if you went down to the doc team area, you’d see these Creative Environment docs on the bookshelves.

The Softimage product was known as “Creative Environment” until 1995, when it became SOFTIMAGE|3D. Here’s a version history of the SOFTIMAGE Creative Environment (CE) and SOFTIMAGE|3D (SI3D) products.
