                           REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION

Newsgroup  :  comp.graphics.apps.softimage
Description:  Softimage applications and products.
Status     :  unmoderated

SUMMARY

    This is the second and most probably last Request For Discussion for the
    Softimage newsgroup.  To date I've only received a few responses, with
    no comment on the specifics of the newsgroup proposal.  If you have any
    comments or problems with the following, this could be your last chance
    to let your opinion be heard.  Barring any conflicts, I plan to issue
    the Call For Votes in a couple of weeks.

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.

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.

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
