cmiVFX launches its next highly anticipated Softimage Training Video?. or should we say “More than just” Training Video.
This visual adventure goes way beyond button clicks and tool locations, by captivating the viewers creative side. This video creation was designed to showcase talent at work. Featuring Ubisoft’s very own 3D Modeler, Sebastien Giroux, the journey begins with a simple polygon, and turns into a complex mechanical warrior right before your eyes. Edited for time, so that your not waiting around for answers to your questions, we trimmed all the fat and added a killer soundtrack to inspire the mood even further. When it comes to training, AND entertainment, there is clearly only one choice. cmiVFX! Say it to yourself or scream it from a mountain top. It just feels right!


In a sea of XSI training materials, only one brand rises above to cater to real world problems in a production environment. cmiVFX created this new ICE video to fill a void in the Softimage | XSI training vertical market. While doing so, we sought the help of ICE Master, Thiago Costa, who is currently dealing with ICE on several projects in a professional production pipeline. This very exciting release is a must have for any and all XSI users and should be the primary tool for anyone migrating from other procedural based FX software packages. When it comes to high end CG and VFX training, there is only once choice… cmiVFX


Within this training video Thiago Costa explores the development of a toolset that deals with scalar data in ICE, by showing it in the context of a weightmap tool. He will guide you through his exploration process and implementation of how to use per-point values to capture and store data between different sources, to diffuse data across the mesh, work with time information and much more.

This training video takes focus on this specific toolset that goes from the basic to intermediate level of how to build an ICE system.
