XSI 5.0 is realeased!!!!!!


Recommended Posts

Booyah, people!

The fantastic XSI 5.0 is now available! Sorry if someone already posted this. Im a day late with the news delivery :oops:

In any case, I know Im getting mine next week. For those of you who haven't played around with XSI before.. its a pretty kick ass poly modeling tool (I think Valved used this for production of Half Life 2)..


The best thing is that they are offering a free 30 day trial of this awesome application.. And if you like it, you can purchase the least expensive lisence for only $500 US! An awesome deal I think.

Just thought I'd pass this info along.

Yeah.. the only free version is the Mod tool..

But for those of you who want to know about features, look here:

If you haven't used XSI before.. you may not know what they are talking about in this PDF.. but its still a good read for those of you who are interested in feature details..

Here is a detailed list of what features are included in that version:

and of course, for those who are interested in learning more through other forums and tutorials.. there are a few sites to check out:

But the new features in 5.0 may not have found their way into the mod tool however (as the mod tool is still currently version 4.2). But if you really want to get on the ball with XSI's extremely robust power and can afford to part with a mere $500 US, I would strongly recommend the 5.0 Foundation version.. You get alot for so little.

Hope this helps out alittle more.
