                           REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
            unmoderated group comp.graphics.apps.softimage

Description:  SOFTIMAGE applications and products.

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]

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.
