I have tried softimage ( i'm using maya ) and i discover this problem too.

The only rsolution that work with softimage are :

1024x768
1280x1024
1600x1200

Stupid thing :thumbsdow

It will work with that res, but you'll have to make your own layout.

Oh, sorry. I thought you meant XSI. Soft3d will not run easily in many resolutions, but I think that you can override that with an environment variable. It will make it run but it will have a "blank" area on either side. If I find the environment variable name/syntax I'll post it. In the mean time send a mail to Support@Softimage.com. They will know the name of the environment variable for sure.

From what I know, what is important is the ratio. For example, I had no problems with SI3D when using 1024x768 and 1280x1024 resolutions, because the ratio is the same. I suspect that it would run on 1600x1200 for the same reasons. No environment variable editing required. :arteest:


Hope this helps
