Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children
Has anyone seen that movie? It's absolutely amazing! You can't even tell that the characters are 3D! It's in Japanese, but it has english subtitles, so halfway through the movie you can swear you're speaking the language yourself

I say it's definitely worth a look :nod:

Lol, I hear different stories. I've read sites saying it was made in Maya, and more saying 3ds Max. Perhaps it was made in both?

Ive watched "the making of advent children" in the dvd included in this box set and they used XSI.
also a mate told me that XSI is the preferred animation software used in Japan apposed to Maya or 3DMAX
