Hello

My name is Ludren and i work (Hobby) with the Trial from Softimage (my Package must come in a few days, i hope).

I have a few problems with the program and i hope you can help me:

1, I have edit the Peferences, how can i save the changes?
2, Can i switch the "users" files to a other place?
3, I have a Monitor solution from 1280x1024, because i hear that XSI need this. But when i render a image, spheres are not spherers, what can i do?

-1, I have edit the Peferences, how can i save the changes?


I don't know if that's what they did with the Demo but the Exp/Exp4HL2 version hadn't persistent preferences so you had to do it everytime you load Xsi(that's why I'm used to it 'out of the box' if I can say so)


-2, Can i switch the "users" files to a other place?

hmmm,I don't want to mislead you but it may only be a case of Moving them,re-start Softimage and he'll ask your for the location(that's "assumed" though)

to change the user files relocation you can't just move them (xsi will recreate the default ones when it starts if it doesn't find any).
assuming you are using windows, in C:\Softimage\XSI_4.2\Application\bin you can find a file called setenv.bat

that file sets the XSI environment before the application starts.

in there you will find a variable definition:
set XSI_USERROOT=c:\users\%USERNAME%

you can change it to any hardtyped path you want.

It means differently with me: "set XSI_USERHOME=%XSI_USERROOT%\Softimage\XSI_4.2_Foundation"

How must i write it for: "C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\All Users\Dokumente"

I work without admin rights and would save my Peferences.

And this should be a perfect sphere:

No. The sphere is fine. It's you that doesn't know the notion of pixel ratio. Open the render options and set it to 1.

When you mean the Resolution Factor, he was 1:1
