Don't remember if I mentioned this before, but I'll be at SIGGRAPH 99 next week. I'll be hosting a party at the Figueroa bar 10-12 on Tuesday, find me, mention Flutterby, and I'll buy you a drink; and personing at the Pixar booth on Thursday. In watching the Pixar booth, my answers will be (in this order):

  • No, you can't have my shirt
  • No, I don't have any spares behind the counter, and I'm not just holding out on you, and even if I did I wouldn't give one to a whiner
  • Pixar isn't hiring right now, but we're always interested in superstars, demo tapes with flying logos need not apply
  • check the web page for school suggestions
  • no plans for a MacOS version, but send us an invoice for 500 copies and we'll port it to anything you want
  • Intel Linux is shipping
  • Alpha Linux is waiting on us getting some more stable installations, the Alpha Unix (flavor of the month) version will run under Linux, but license issues concerning DEC's libraries are a concern
  • NT is in beta waiting for people to feel comfortable with copy protection problems
  • Have you looked at Blue Moon Rendering Tools?
  • Talk to Lola about terms, she's right over there
Oh yeah, one more Pixar/SIGGRAPH answer: No, we're not remaking Tron. But we are considering The Last Starfigh... Nevermind.
