Hi. I am wanting to know if the Student Version of Softimage XSI allows you to import ant export models from Maya and ZBrush? For instance can I create a model in ZBrush and export it into XSI with no problem with the student version?

As far as I know, the student version of XSI is exactly the same as the full version.
The main difference is in the license, where it says that you cannot earn any money with what you've made in de student version.
Which makes good sense actually. :)

Greetings

After talking with an XSI rep here I understand that the student version is exactly the same as the full priced version. Also, if you buy the full license, it has no time limitations (unlike Maya and max which have 1 year and 2 year licenses respectively).

hi dude5487 i am using the Academic Edition of XSI Advanced and it exactly the same with the official edition. The only restriction is that the licence allows only 2 CPUs for mental ray

Yep both versions of advanced versions are exactly the same exept for the licensing issues.... and of course that thing that happens after two years.. USB dongle grow legs and runs away to greenland. But other than that.. They are both pretty much the same and very useable.

I was at AGC recently and I was speaking with the Softimage rep at the time, I asked him every question from CPU usage to Mental Ray questions but didnt ask about the other stuff I posted here. At Journeyed and Softimages site, you can pay for the 1 year license or unlimited. Why would the unlimted run out of time?

Is this happening for fact? Why this happens? I hope this will not happen to me because i already using it for 1 and a half year.
