i was just wondering why you switched to xsi from maya?
Not trying to put you on the spot or anything, just curious.

Thanks for the replies.

For why i am switching,

we will start working on a collaborative short animation project shortly, and chose Xsi as the package of choice largely because the majority of the team is familiar with it and it is more animation friendly , it is dependable when rendering!! (the main reason why i am switching).

oh and i love the UI ;)

has alot of links and i think some reference books are listed. Although they may not all be XSI related.

Hope that helps,
