Normally i don’t write such posts, but sins xsi was a long time dream to me…

i was looking in to xsi from version 4 i guess, gathering courage to move from max to xsi. At first i thought i should learn maya, but after autodesk bought it i was very serious to move to xsi. after ice release i downloaded demo and started playing around with it. Xsi always had this feeling of independence, and being not pro monopolist. Thinking about artist and so on.. And sins i am not a programmer (scripter) ice looked very apealing to me. But now???

What will it mean – if all biggest 3d aps belong to one company?

who dies first? well i am sure you will find much more about topic in base forums or wherever, but i just couldn’t resist…

on other hand: could it be a good thing?more money for developement, sins it seems avid was not very lucky with xsi lately….

I am deeply shocked.

what i would be interested is opinions from maya and max users who deal with autodesk.

any thoughts?
