Originally published as Inside Softimage 3D by New Riders, the complete guide to using Softimage|3D is back in print as Softimage|3D Fundamentals, updated for Softimage|3D v4.0 and with an additional all-new chapter on writing expressions. Softimage|3D Fundamentals covers the techniques and art of animating with Softimage|3D, but it is also so technically complete that Softimage licensed Fundamentals as the user manual included with the Softimage|3D 4.0 software!
