Friday Flashback #135 Posted on August 30, 2013 by xsisupport Holy LT Batman! The XSI 4.2 feature-comparison chart for Advanced, Essentials, and Foundation. I answered questions about this so many times, I still remember most of it. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related
I the memory…. That was my entry point to Softimage. If I remember correctly, the introduction of Foundation was also promoted with a contest to create an animation (character provided by Softimage). I tried to find the asset but could not find it unfortunately.
I still have all the stuff, BTW, box and all. The box (which sport my favorite art – the flower logo – came with a book, the essential dvd, the five production dvds, the software installation cds, etc.) and NO DONGLE. I have a photo of the content if you want it.
He, here a flashback idea for your next post … the Softimage dongle over time!
I’d love a picture 🙂
For the early versions of Foundation (pre 6.0 I believe) you would not get a dongle. You’d get a registration code and a license key, and you’d enter the license key at startup.
I miss Batch Serve. In my view one of the greatest additions and perfect for small teams. Quite interesting that C4D has added a render manager with EC2 intergration in r15.
my very first Softimage. Love at first site and stole me away from Alias Maya 6:)
The only version (4.2F) of any software I actually never regretted buying for a single day. 😉
Oh yes, the flower. I still have the production DVD.
