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.

Any workflow for artsy types?

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!
