View Full Version : XSI Illuminated: character

08 August 2002, 08:55 AM
Hi guys :wavey:

Just wondering if anyone has got hold of Mesmer's new book - XSI Illuminated : character.

Just wanting to know what it's like, and if it's worth buying?

I'm hoping it has more then just how to use XSI's tools, and discusses a number of advanced character modeling\rigging\animation techniques........n stuff ;)

Typical, Amazon informs me my copy has shipped, and then I read a bad review of the book!!:rolleyes: Next time, I'll wait and see what the reviews are like.

Anyway, it does sound more like a user guide than a bunch of in-depth tutorials, which is what I had assumed it would be. Im sure it will come in handy at some stage.

Thanks for the link Atyss :)

Ya helped out as usual bud:thumbsup:

Yeah farquar I'm contemplating on getting it or not. But even if it's more of a user guide and tips book, it might be handy.

As if it has many tips on how I can further my character rigging\animation techniques it's worth me getting.

But being the impatient thing I am, I might just get the damn book and not wait around for any indepth reviews :rolleyes:

That's the first negative review I've seen... but it starts out "I just received this book today and..." I don't think that's quite fair :)

Well, I've had the book for a while now, and havent got into it in any depth as yet, but it looks very comprehensive and useful for learning XSI animation, and modeling which is cool.

Its a good buy:thumbsup:
