Siggraph: Notes from the show floor

One of these days we will attend Siggraph directly, and hopefully when that happens Apple will actually be in attendance. If Apple is going to ever be taken seriously in the 3D world this show is one they must not miss.

Notes on 3D Graphics

3D Nature is in booth 1066 showing their new World Construction Set, version 5. Famous for its use in landscape and terrain modeling, including use by more golf course architects, WCS v.5 has a new interface and other user-demanded features.

Adobe is in booth 1637 and will most likely be showing their new 3D Web application, Atmosphere, which is in the works.

We have a lot more on 3D and CAD software in our other pages so follow the links below.

Notes on Hardware Items

3DLabs' new card for Apple Cinema Displays running off PC's has been covered in a number of news sites. Perhaps the big news in the hardware arena came from ATI with their new video cards.

Matrox Graphics Inc. was on hand. Aside from making numerous cards for PC's the company makes a special dual-head graphics card for the Mac G4. Ever wanted to try out a SGI IRIX machine but didn't have the cash for a new one? XS International Inc may be your best friend. The company specializes in new and refurbished SGI, Sun and Intergraph workstations and servers for the high-end markets. Check out their website for some of the workstations you can get for small dollar. Like an SGI O2 system R5000 processor running IRIX for just $1200.
