Has anyone seen The Advanced Visualizer(TAV) from Wavefront? There are a couple of screenshots on the net.
Yes I uploaded it to the FTP, I guess the site admin needs to vet it first - not really sure what the process is actually.

I think he looks at the archives to make sure that they contain no 'unwanted bits', or perhaps he tries them out first to make sure they work. It seems there are a number of days before the files show up.

What folder at FTP one should look for uploaded files? Owner says that download from INCOMING is not allowed so I think files will appear at MISC or EXTRA.

It looks like some of the uploaded content ended up in "misc"

I have an original Alias 6 CD-ROM from 1995, will try to see if it is still readable and upload it. Really hope we could have something like win world or vetusware for Irix. Especially the older software is extremely rare.
Please, share with us. Preserve this old software it's very important .

I'll upload my ISO's of Alias3 and 6, I'm just waiting to see what happens with the stuff already uploaded and if .ISO formats are allowed on the FTP

Thanks, the first step to obtain a method to do it works it's make the CD or the app available. Remember upload all CD not only the app CD, content CD with scenes, objects, tutorials or promotional videos are very important too .

Strange, there's nothing at FTP yet... I'm waiting for these apps too. I also try to search my old HHDs for IRIX software, I remember there was something interesting.

PS: found something - Alias 8.1 (not tested). Does anyone need this?

With Alias3 and Alias6 everything was on one CD

Seems the recent uploads are in the "uncategorized" folder. Thanks for the Discreet SparkO2 files, gijoe! I will have a look at it in the near future. Hope you can test Barco Creator and Discreet Flame 4, both should possibly work on older SGIs. Creator is even multithreaded (years before Photoshop!), just have to set the number of processors in a configuration file, if i recall correctly.
