My weekly update is done but i will postpone it to post a bit of news that some have been expecting for some time. XSI is no more. I can’t say Im surprised as are XSI users but the reason i am posting this is not because i am a user but because it was a really important piece of software in the industry.
Earlier in the year of the acquisition Softimage announced ICE. An architecture that has completely changed the way SI was perceived and used.
Anyway im sure users more familiar with the software and the dealings will speak of it on forums/twitter/blogs etc but here is a little piece of history i thought you might like.
This is the moment right after Autodesk acquired Softimage, in a talk with Marc Petit and Marc Stevens.
