Cubic Bezier Curve Node for Softimage ICE
Posted in Graphics on Jul 6, 2011

I initially built one using the native ICE nodes, but although the tree was rather simple and consisted of nothing more [...]
Glossy Reflection and Refraction Shaders Updated for 3Delight for Softimage 3.0.9
Posted in Graphics on Jul 4, 2011
A while back I wrote a couple of custom shaders for 3Delight for Softimage, in which I had to rely on a few hacks to get 3Delight to see the RenderMan shader implementation files that I was using. And it worked just fine for a while. Version 3.0.9 of 3Delight for Softimage was released a [...]
Softimage Icons For Your Windows 7 Taskbar
Posted in Miscellanea on Apr 10, 2011
I usually keep two versions of Softimage installed on my computer: the current version and whatever version that preceded it.

UV Geometry Constraint Plug-In
Posted in Graphics on Oct 24, 2009
Shortly after releasing the geometry constraint plug-in, someone on the CGTalk forums asked if it was possible to extend it to allow of random or uniform placement of several objects on the surface of a polygonal mesh.

Two New Plug-Ins for Softimage
Posted in Graphics on Sep 23, 2009
I have been working on a character rig for Softimage based on the Andy Rig for Maya, and I had to write a couple of plug-ins to automate some tasks. Well, I technically had to write just one; the other is just a little itch that I had been wanting to scratch for a while. [...]
