F*cking Softimage...

...just *wouldn't* stop crapping out on me. Those of you who've used this program (of EVIL) will know how buggy it is - but for those of you who don't, let me enlighten you. It takes up so much RAM that it crashes the computer every other session, lags about *nine* times a session, and pretty much *every* session, goes buggy halfway through a project so that you have to restart to knock it back into working order.

And this software is the industry standard.


It didn't really help that he only explained the incredibly easy one, and left us to figure out the really complicated one ourselves. He seems to do that a lot.

I went in at seven-thirty to finish my 3D project, but only got halfway through it before Softimage started dying on me, in fits and starts. By the time I got it up and running again, I had to leave, both to pick up Shannon from work and to make sure I actually got at least an hour of sleep before getting up at six for Thursday class. Damn. I should have stayed Tuesday night to finish it all, I suppose, but the buses would all have been gone by the time I was done, and I'd have been stranded...

So... since I can't really go in early, my project is *not* finished. And it's due tomorrow. Sigh.

I could have finished it if only he hadn't given us THREE PROJECTS on a Tuesday and made them due for Thursday. What if I'd had class 'til seven-thirty on Wednesday like I do most days? Most days I'd just stay 'til ungodly hours of the morning to finish - but that's usually a Friday, and due Monday... I can't really stay 'til one in the morning on a weeknight when I have class at nine the next morning.

Here's hoping he hasn't figured out how to access the network folders yet...

Sounds like every generation of Dreamweaver, especially with the bugginess-- like where it randomly decides it's not going to show you any menus, including the save menu so you don't know where or what you're saving your project as...

All nighters
Wow. Sounds like you're having a great time. Wait till you're rendering huge animations,and they take 6 days to render, and acomputer crashes....not a plesent time. That's why I like the Maya/Max cobo. Make in Maya, render in 3DS MAX. What takes 5 days in Maya, takes 4 hours in maya. Yay! Don't worry. When you're bogged down in Maya, and soft, and Ican...there is little hope...damn ICAN walk cycle from hell....I SHOWED JERRY THOGUH!!!!!I DID AN ALL NIGHTER AND HAD 6 LAYERS....6!!!!!!!!! But you'll have one thing to look foward to....WILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Softimage can definately be an evil death machine.
