I am considering the purchase of either Maya or XSI v2. I’m interested in knowing if XSI has direct support for the following (built-in), if it’s available via plug-in or if it’s necessary to use a 3rd party solution.
Camera Matching - does XSI have an integrated module to track live action footage to support the addition of 3d elements?
RIB support - can XSI export the geometry and materials to RIBs for rendering in BMRT?
Trees / Foliage - I’m guessing XSI doesn’t have an equivilant to Paint FX in Maya, but… what is the normal process for adding trees, grass and other foliage?
Thanks for the help guys.
