If this ever comes out then it will solve your problem.

Untill then try Maya>movetools>Soft3D>XSI.

dotXSI will be the perfect way, but in the meantime;
It is quite easy, just export your animation from Maya in any know and documented export format and write a little script to load that data from XSI.

Motion capture formats like BVH would do the work for you.

hope it helps.

I'm not really that technical a 3d guy. Does anyone know of a plug-in solution to getting a model and or animation data from Maya to XSI?

Ive had the same problem. Polytran is a good program the exports .IGES files from MAYA which XSi can read..

The trial version removes every 5th polygon :(
The full version is about $300!! But if yr at uni or working for a company Im sure they'd agree its a good investment!
