I'm not an expert user of Softimage xsi. In fact, I started using it no more than three years ago, still learning. The rumours started some time ago. Hardcore user forums were suspecting the inevitable. Softimage xsi launches their last release in April 2014, according to Autodesk, here the screenshot.
I got in contact with particle systems and VFX first through Cinema 4d. Started handling some resources from realflow but my research showed me the power I was eager to develop. Houdini and Softimage xsi seduce me the most. Some how my early ages in Maya oriented me to choose Softimage xsi. Now disappointed for the news.
But hey, if Softimage xsi goes, how are we supposed to do this?
