Softimage 2011 or 3ds max 2010 or Maya?

I have recently started learning how to model, i started off with 3ds max 2010 and am now using softimage 2011(full version of xsi mod tool). The thing about softimage is that I can’t find an .smd importer. I also don’t know how many source units 1 unit in 3ds max is. If anyone has any tutorials that can help me then feel free to share.


3ds max has an importer made by wunderboy
