Avid unveils SOFTIMAGE|XSI v.5.0
8/4/2005



In addition to running on standard 32-bit CPUs, SOFTIMAGE|XSI v.5.0 will be available in a native 64-bit configuration, allowing users to model, animate and render extremely complex scenes with billions of polygons and layers of 3-D, film, and video content.

During the SIGGRAPH show in Los Angeles last week, Avid Technology unveiled version 5.0 of the company’s SOFTIMAGE|XSI 3-D animation software.

The software delivers native 64-bit support with advanced modeling, animation, and rendering capabilities. New Maya migration features are also added.

As a key component of Avid’s integrated computer graphics solutions, SOFTIMAGE|XSI v.5.0 introduces 3-D teams to new features, like Ultimapper, a map generation tool for producing cinema-quality maps in a few clicks; and GATOR, a property transfer system for merging fully textured and animated 3-D models.

In addition to running on standard 32-bit CPUs, SOFTIMAGE|XSI v.5.0 will be available in a native 64-bit configuration, allowing users to model, animate and render complex scenes in their entirety with billions of polygons and layers of 3-D, film and video content.
