SOFTMAGE|XSI scripting presented by Mantom teaches the fundamentals of scripting, empowering animators to solve production related issues through creation of their own script-based tools. Emphasis is placed on interaction with XSI through the use of scripted languages such as Jscript and/or Vbscript. All students receive hands-on experience writing scripts and course notes of material presented in class.

It is planned that this site should be evolved into 'a space of communication' of data and information for 3D animation. And hopefully, it could be a room for promoting mutual friendship between persons of the same business line.
