SOFTIMAGE|XSI is production-proven 3D animation software for games, film and television. XSI offers a complete 3D modeling, animation, rendering and development toolset out of the box. Built on a new, highly extensible architecture, XSI gives 3D professionals unparalleled power and flexibility to bring your creative visions to life quickly and profitably. XSI 7 introduces ICE (Interactive Creative Environment), a groundbreaking technology that transforms XSI from just another 3D product into a powerful and flexible open platform. ICE greatly improves collaboration between artists and technical directors, allowing them to create custom tools and effects visually, see the results interactively, and do it all without scripting. Effects built or modified in ICE are performance tuned and multi-threaded, so they perform at maximum efficiency across all available processors.
