Resource for ICE in Softimage
show user profile  hamid javan
the most important thing for me in 3D world that I have ever studied, was and will be Simulation, how to interact with things in 3D space and how to solve the simulations. For that reason I have tried many Applications such as Maya, 3DsMax, Realflowuntil I finally found Softimage. Of course 3DsMax is the mother of all 3D programs, and I do all my work inside it, but this area (Simulation) is not its advantage. So I came to Softimage. It's a real heavy and difficult program. The only problem is that it has no tutorials, and there is only a user enemy "User Guide" available.
For working with simulation in this program, you have to learn ICE (Interactive Creative Environment). But without Tutorials it doesn’t work. It's simply too difficult. I need Help.
I'm looking for some good resource and tutorial for ICE in Softimage.
Any place???

Doesn't Softimage come with help files and tutorials like Max does?

I've only really been using softimage for a few weeks but 'pooby' has a few intro videos that go over some key concepts:

Plenty of videos in his feed to get through!

And, although paid, these sites have a lot of tutorials for ICE too (some free);

The help is pretty good I'd say, ICE is tricky to get your head around to begin with.. Forums aren't huge for XSI but I learned myself through manual...trial and error.. lots of videos on vimeo..

ALSO although autodesk will probably want you to think Softimage is just ICE now... 3dsmax is not mother of all 3d apps ;) - unless when you say mother, you mean old. And er, other things just sound rude about mothers if I continue.

There was talk at Autodesk of integrating ICE into Max last year as one of the long-term plans.
