This assignment comprises a written part and a set of modeling tasks using the SoftImage 3D modeling and animation system. The written part is available in two formats: gzip-compressed PostScript, and uncompressed PostScript. Directions concerning the modeling tasks appear within the written part of the assignment.
The solutions to the written part of the assignment are available in two formats: gzip-compressed PostScript, and uncompressed PostScript. The solution to the modeling part is available as a SoftImage database, in gzip-compressed, tar archive format; use
gunzip -c soft.tar.gz | tar xf -to unpack the archive. The generated database, named soft, can be accessed within SoftImage 3D by modifying the file DatabaseDir.rsrc in your home directory as follows: add the two lines below
DATABASE solutions PATH <path>where <path> is the full path from the root of the disk containing the database, upto and including the database itself, e.g.
/usr/people/tolis/softThis database contains the scenes generated by completing all the lessons in the SoftImage 3D tutorial, in addition to the solutions to the modeling part.
