RATIONALE      With the Wavefront and Alias newsgroups in existence for some time, the     lack of a newsgroup for SOFTIMAGE applications is a curious hole in the     trio of high-end modeling/animation/rendering suites.  Given the highly     complex nature of these beasts, learning how to effectively use (or in     some cases find!) the features of this package would be greatly aided     with a forum for animators to get together and discuss tips and     problems.  CHARTER      comp.graphics.apps.softimage is a forum for the discussion of SOFTIMAGE     applications -- these include, but are not limited to, Eddie, Creative     Environment, Toonz, and so on.      Discussion may include technical questions, tips, problems, product     queries and ordering information, and announcement of new products.     Questions concerning particular computing systems should be directed to     the appropriate comp.sys.* newsgroups.  The posting of binaries is     discouraged; ftp sites are much preferred.  PPROPOSAL PROCESS      For those unfamiliar with the process of newsgroup proposal, this is the     first RFD (Request For Discussion) for this newsgroup.  After the     proponents of this group achieve consensus on the name, location and     charter of this group, and when 21 days have passed from the date of     the first RFD, it may go on to CFV (Call For Votes), which will last     for another three weeks or so.  The newsgroup will be created if there     are at least 100 more YES votes than NO votes and 2/3 of the votes are     YES.      At this stage in the process we're looking for flaws in the proposal     and are trying to get concensus about what the final ballot will be.     If you have any reservations at all, or any chages to suggest, now is     the time to voice your opinion.      Follow-ups to this article should go to news.groups, and email should     go to [email protected]                                          Steve <[email protected]>  From [email protected] Tue Jun  6 00:08:03 1995 Status: RO Path: uunet!bounce-back From: [email protected] (Steve Hollasch) Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups,news.groups,comp.graphics.misc,comp.graphics.animation,comp.sys.sgi.apps,comp.sys.sgi.misc Subject: RFD: comp.graphics.apps.softimage Followup-To: news.groups Date: 5 Jun 1995 18:48:37 -0400 Organization: None Lines: 47 Sender: [email protected] Approved: [email protected] Message-ID: <[email protected]> NNTP-Posting-Host: rodan.uu.net Xref: gs2.UU.NET news.announce.newgroups:6959 news.groups:152399 comp.graphics.misc:151 comp.graphics.animation:20145 comp.sys.sgi.apps:8442 comp.sys.sgi.misc:19359                             REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)             unmoderated group comp.graphics.apps.softimage  Description:  SOFTIMAGE applications and products.

HOW TO VOTE  Send MAIL to:   [email protected] Just replying should work if you are not reading this on a mailing list.  It would be apprciated by the votetaker if you did NOT forward the entire CFV back; this mail is archived and I really don't need several hundred copies of the CFV on my system.  Your mail message should contain one of the following statements:       I vote YES on comp.graphics.apps.softimage       I vote NO on comp.graphics.apps.softimage  You may also ABSTAIN in place of YES/NO - this will not affect the outcome. Anything else may be rejected by the automatic vote counting program.  The votetaker will respond to your received ballots with a personal acknowledge- ment by mail - if you do not receive one within several days, try again. It is your responsibility to make sure your vote is registered correctly.  Only one vote per person, no more than one vote per account.  Addresses and votes of all voters will be published in the final voting results list.
