the skin weighting colouds are amazing! in both XSI and MAX, its a shame maya doesnt have it
theres also enveloping, which a lot of people dnt like, but shud still be there for those like me
oooooh sumthing else thats amazing about XSI, the RTA and the whole crowd simulation, its like massive but only cheaper
but apart from that, Maya kicks more ass than XSI does
