I am wanting to make the switch from 3ds max to xsi, but need some final propoganda to tip the cup.
I'm wondering if anyone could post some examples of particle animations (liquid, fire, smoke, explosion) and character animation. Short movies, or test animations.
I've found the www.xsibase.com (http://www.xsibase.com), but I'm wondering if there are other good sites with galleries and tutorials (other than the homepage).
Also does XSI have a volumetric (or hypervoxel) particle render? (similar to Afterburn) I've found the Arete tools and stuff, but it's not quite what I'm looking for.
I'm mainly looking at XSI Foundation and then eventually Essentials, so any relevant information or good ol' propoganda would be useful.
Thanks for your help.
