I just downloaded XSI and at first glance I was kind of overwhelmed. I'm very used to Cinema4D, Blender3D and had my hands in Maya 6 for a while. Just getting used to the interface is taking a bit. Might I suggest a quickie tutorial on using the basics of XSI? Perhaps taking someone from opening XSI right up to modeling and texturing something simple like a gingerbread man (as seen in Blenders opening docs). Just something to think about. I know that there are a few friends that have downloaded XSI and dumped it a week later just because they were having a hard time getting around.

Would be very useful. ;)

Nice work on this though and listed on my bookmarks.

B..B..Buut you weren't supposed to download it...
Maybe because it's easy to acquire, it's easy to dump. ;)
Hell me, all I did in XSI to date was import models, and render 'em without shaders (they seem to be malfunctioning)

Yes, that is true. I will have to update soon so I can continue to learn XSI. However, I will be working in 3DS Max in about a month. Although the internship that I have is working with XSI, the basics are still the same.

Nooo... they aren't...
Catmull-Clark, as a term, simply scared the shit outta me... :D
Actually XSI's interface is, very, devious. I came back to this page to just see how materials work.

lol, yeah it is devious at that. I recall the other apps such as Blender3D, Cinema4d and Maya. All of them are pretty much straight forward with the navigation. Before I found some tutorials on XSI I spent some time getting kind of frustrated about the navigation in XSI. However, after about an hours worth of video from 3dbuzz, I was working on it with no problems.

Just makes you wonder what the hell programmers are thinking when they decide to make little changes like that. ;)

Thanks for the comment! :) For getting a hold of the basics I recommend watching XSI vtm's from (they were free last time i checked) - those are some nice video tutorials that really can get you up to speed with this app (from basics of scene management to rendering).

Thank you. I actually was on 3dbuzz and was directed over to the VTMs on XSI. Great stuff and fun to watch. I know it's going to take some getting used to. Like a previous post about XSI, it seems cumbersome to use. I don't know, maybe i'm just used to Cinema4D and the interface there. Once I get things rolling again with some income, I will be getting XSI and work on learning that as another modeling app beside 3DS Max and Cinema4D.

Thank you again for the tutorial.
