    I haven't bought the video from 3dtutorials yet, but for 49.99US$ , wich i think is a low price for traning materials, you can't go wrong.

    If any one has seen the "Getting Started with SOFTIMAGE|XSI" they can tell you if it it's worth it.
    I've tried the demo of that one, but it seems to be aimed at people transitioning from Maya to XSI.

    I have purchased the Modelling I by Stuart Diston-Hunter from 3dtutorial.com and that one is an awesome introduction to modelling in XSI. In just a few hours (I think it's 12 hours) it will get anyone up to speed using XSI's modelling tools.

    I also recommend the XSI - Production Solutions and Tips as well, since the Modelling I only covers modelling, and the PST one covers Shading, Lighting, Rendering and Compositing.

    I got the Production Tips, the SubD-Modelling and the Render Tree videos. And i like all of them. My favorite so far is the Production Tips one, cause it covers a range of topics in xsi.
    Did anyone here watch the head-modelling tutorial (the new one)? Can someone recommend it, or say something specific about it?

    cheers,

    I have the new head modelling one Daniel and i can highly recommend it. I've only just started to work through it but i've learnt a lot. Especially on the flow for creating nice edge loops etc.

    Really looking forward to completing this head.

    I'll try to upload a render tonight of where i'm at.

    Well thanks Lancelot....i'd say it's a very good tutorial that you can't really go wrong with. For the last 30% though i am going to deviate a bit from the tutorial, don't want to be copying it totally.

    Thanks for the feedback and uploading your images mrmacca. Those renders look really nice.
    One more thing. In the videos - is the author only showing what he's dooing, or also explaining why? I don't want to replicate every single cut or edgeloop, instead i want to understand the technique behind it, so i'll be alble to transfer the knowledge to other "heads" or even other 3d packages.

    cheers,

    Greetz HokutoTC,

    I am happy to consider doing this on a case by case basis, so if you are interested making a volume purchase you should contact me privately at:

    joe[at]3dtutorial.com (please replace the [at] with @)

    And tell me what you have in mind, I'm sure I can work something out that will make you happy :-))

    When you write me, make sure you tell me who you are and that we had a chat about volume discounts on the 3D Buzz site.

    I hope this will help



    Cheers,

    Joe
