lol, yeah I know what you mean
nice, so I'm not the only one
I read many forum where guys download a software, try it for a hour or less and then take a firm decision ("this software is shit" or "awesome software"). Cannot understand how they can do so, software like SI or Maya are so big an deep...
and Softimage was a great choice on your end to start with
I hope so. Actually, I find modelling great (a bit of confusion with local/global coordinate and summetry), I become from Blender, silo and Modo, so now with SI. Actually there is a possible cooperation with a studio, so stop for a bit my rendering studying and start rigging animation side. For this reason take a look at Messiah, look nice, but if we exclude autorigging, for my little experience, Blender rigging look better (IMHO)
