Hello all,

I got Exp XSI 4 book, and you have to download the files on ( in order to follow up the tutorials.. It seems like there are lot of files missing on the website, anyone else have this problem??? its a really good book, but lot of files don't match with what the book is saying...

I thought about ordering this book. Until I saw it in a local bookstore and thumbed through it. I wasn't intrigued at all, especially considering the price of it. Besides, a lot of the tutorials in the book are geared towards users with XSI Advanced which I don't have. I'll stick with the DVDs that came with XSI and hopefully more books will get published as Softimage gains in popularity. This is one aspect where Softimage is definitely lacking: 3rd party books.

Sorry to hear about the missing tutorials. More than likely you will need to send an email to the publisher of the book. There's probably contact info available in the book or on their website:
