IRIX winnt


The information in this article applies to:

  • Softimage 3D for IRIX, version 3.7
  • == Softimage 3D for Windows NT, version 3.7 ==


While trying to preview, one of the following error messages appears in the SOFTIMAGE 3D Command Prompt:

CreateDIBSection failed with error code = 0


worldtoprsp1: divide by zero, transformation ignored

This can also cause SOFTIMAGE 3D to crash without any warnings.


The X resolution and perhaps the X and Y resolution in Preview Setup are set to 0. You must specify a value other than 0 for the X (Y resolution alone does not cause a problem).


In the Preview Setup, enter a value other than 0 for the X resolution.
