Autodesk Softimage|XSI

I recently posted about Animusic and how they have been using Autodesk 3ds Max but now use SOFTIMAGE|XSI. How little did I know that now Softimage is to be acquired by Autodesk.

The press release: Autodesk Signs Agreement With Avid Technology to Acquire Softimage

Autodesk plans to acquire and continue developing the following Softimage products:

-- SOFTIMAGE|XSI: Including XSI Essentials, XSI Advanced, XSI Academic,
   XSI Mod Tool and the XSI software development kit. XSI is
   production-proven 3D animation software for games, film and
   television. It offers a complete 3D modeling, animation, rendering and
   development environment for visual effects and custom tools.
-- SOFTIMAGE|Face Robot: A complete software solution for easily rigging
   and animating 3D faces. Face Robot enables studios to create life-like
   facial animation at incredible speeds.
-- SOFTIMAGE|Cat: This advanced character animation system is a plug-in
   for Autodesk 3ds Max software. It is intended to be integrated into
   the 3ds Max product line.
-- SOFTIMAGE|Crosswalk: This interoperability solution is intended to be
   integrated with Autodesk's own interoperability technology.
Is it XSI that can be seen in this movie?
