The used to offer a trial download and a 15 or 30-day license key
generator for the trial. I don't believe they do this anymore, but I
was able to get both the trial licenses (and just set the date back)
and a longer license just by e-mailing sales.

I never did video on the I2 because I had no I/O, however I believe
that IFX supports the standard video libraries on SGI hardware which
allow I/O on any of the supported devices. I know, for instance, that
all video boards on the Octane are supported, so I would not be
surprised if the I2 Impact options worked as well.

Piranha was very intuitive and relatively easy to learn.
