R.i.p., Xsi

Hiya.

Well...I guess that's that. I had a vbs error (primitives) when I tried to fire up XSI the other day. It's the educational version for 2015. Tried to reinstall and...greyed out. Looking at my Autodesk Account, I see I can install Maya and MAX...but XSI is gone. Searching the AD site and XSI doesn't show up anywhere anymore. I'm seriously bummed! :( I've been using Modo mostly for the last year or so, and still trying to grapple with Blender and Maya...but I could always fire up my educational version of XSI2015 if I wanted to feel like I could actually do something in 3d other than make a box with some extruded bits (basically, XSI was my "ego massager and empathetic shoulder").

I feel like crying. :( ...uh... so... anyone know where I can buy a copy of XSI 2015?

its astonishing how many people still use Softimage since EOL.
I still use it 100% on all my works and will keep using it forever till it runs on any machine i have
sadly for you i dont think you can buy it anymore, maybe it'll get installed when you buy max or maya, have no clue.

good luck

I still have a few XSI discs boxes from 2007-2010 era. Xsi 5.11 is my oldest set.

Hiya!

Yeah...I still don't know why AD doesn't just sell XSI "As Is...", where all the onus is on the customer (e.g., I give them money, they give me a licence...everything after that is up to me). I don't need support, refunds, updates, etc. Just let me buy the damn program! >:( Oh...wait. I thought of why. Because it would compete with Maya...STILL! I'm still ticked that AD killed it. If I ever win a hundred million dollars I'm gonna try and buy XSI. LOL!

I did find ONE site...but it's, hmm..."iffy"? Here:http://www.pcm.com/p/Autodesk-Graph...09~pdp.jahiife I got an email back after I emailed to make sure that it was LEGAL and that AD WOULD STILL AUTHORIZE IT. I told them I'd fork over my $4k right now. I got an email back that was nothing more than "Great! Call us and we can get you a better deal on multiple copies!"...with absolutely zero answers to my two Q's. I'm gonna email them back again...just to see. I'm also going to email AD, but I figure they'll just give me a stock "We don't support XSI. Here, buy Maya in stead!" (For the hundredth time, I don't f'ing WANT Maya!)

Now I'm depressed. Great. Time for a T3 with a Vodka chasser I think...
