    Fingers crossed... have mistaken your enthusiasm for the product as some reason for Avid to maintain enthusiasm for this business. My point has nothing to do with the tool (I have no doubt it has worked out significant workflow isues.) My point is that the BUSINESS is dead. Just talk to any of the major effects houses who are using Maya now and ask if they plan on changing over to XSI any time you think the typical Avid sales guy (with a $XX million dollar quota) has the time to even say "XSI"? and if he did, who is going to do the heavy lifting to do lengthy evaluations (Avid animators RIP, or, better yet, resellers) so that big effects houses can, at the end, say "sure, i'll buy, at 75% discount of the list price."....Please, I love your enthusiasm for the product, but if you're a user, I bet you haven't even paid for maintenence in the past 3 years!! Now how the hell is anyone supposed to make a business on customers like you??.......or, you're probably some engineer in montreal who lived Sumatra to it's natural and unfortunate get on with it and get your "3DMax for Idiots" book while Borders still has them in stock.....but everyone should do their own research
