I am confused. There is a version of XSI called the XSI Foundation version that is priced at less than $1000. But is this just a mod or plug-in for 3D Studio Max or something? Or is it its own modeling package? On the site I was at, it said something like, Switch from 3DS Max to XSI for $700 some dollars. So as far as I can tell so far, its just an add on to another modeling program. I appreciate any help.

XSI is a modeling program unto itself. It has no dependence for any other modeling program. The comment they make about 3D Studio Max is simply an incentive offer to get people to stop using 3D Studio Max and use XSI instead.

Yes, XSI is a stand-alone software made by Softimage, and the very best modeler and animating software if you ask me. It was used to make little things like Jurassic Park and Half-life 2.

Anyway, they have a special sale for the people that own 3D studio Max. Basically, they will buy your old 3DMax license if you buy an XSI license. Of course XSI cost much more than 3DMax.

They also have educational licenses that are cheaper, but I dont know if individuals can buy those, of if it is just for universities and college.
