Avid SoftImage XSI Advanced 5.0
Introducing SOFTIMAGE|XSI v.5.0, the digital character software
designed with a gigapolygon core to handle ten times the detail
for next-generation productions and take full advantage
of 64-bit platforms.
Acclaimed for its ease of use, XSI v5.0 introduces a comprehensive
set of migration tools for Maya users. New interface layouts and
navigation modes let artists transfer their existing skills and muscle
memory to XSI, and migrate in days, not weeks.
Going far beyond normal maps, XSI v.5.0 introduces "Ultimapper" for
film-quality effect maps with a single-click workflow. Ultimapper
generates normal, ambient occlusion, difference, parallax, light,
and albedo maps from arbitrarily complex models using the full power
and cinematic quality of mental ray rendering.
A core component at the heart of Avid Computer Graphics solutions,
XSI v.5.0 allows 3-D art teams to achieve richer results more quickly.
Combined with Alienbrain. Studio, the scalable asset management system
and powerful Avid editing and compositing workstations,
the flexibility of Avid Computer Graphics solutions make it easier
and more affordable to bring order to complicated creative workflows.
