View Full Version : XSI scripting/programing books

01 January 2009, 01:56 AM
I plan to start studying scripting for XSI.
I have knowledge on Object oriented programing and wanted to use that in XSI.
Is there any books out there that talk particularly about the functions, commands, and classes of XSI?
I can find tons of books on JScript or C++ but nothing on the particularities of XSI.

any help will be welcome.

PS: for those playing a drinking game....XSI.

if you have previous programming knowledge and are serious about this, go straight the python way. Don't bother with JS or VBS.
Get dive into python (free ebook) and learning python by o'reilly, download a few scripts for XSI for reference, give yourself a sequence of increasingly complex projects to work on, and familiarize yourself with the sdk docs (which are very good these days). Best learning path I can recommend.

No scripting books out there, only a couple training videos, but I've never found them to be as necessary as for some other platforms.
