View Full Version : what/where is softimage|rtk ???

08 August 2002, 08:23 AM
The xsi feature lists states that crowd simulations can be done with xsi v2. In the experience cd that softimage handed out there is a little piece on crowd simulation and the narration states that 'this scene is brought over from softimage|rtk' i went to the softimage site but found nothing about rtk. so what is it and is it shipped with xsi v2? and if so.. where is it? :) and if not.. then why is softimage claiming that crowd simulation can be done from within xsi? (the only thing that they did in the 'piece' was substitute low res characters with others.)

explainations please

I had the same thought after watching that tutorial video.

i think you must have a special contract, and work with the special
projects section of softimage to have access to the rtk and the crowd simulation seems the rtk was in beta version and will be release/sell with xsi 3.0
if someone have more infos...

hmm.. interesting.. well i hope that rtk is part of xsi 3. Although i do think it's a bit misleading on Softimage's part to include 'crowd simulation' in the feature list.

the review of xsi 3 by Ed Harriss on is neat :)

anyone else have anything to say about softimage|rtk?
