If you are a 3D artist who’d like to try out a different ( and free, but very powerful ) modelling package, or if you are interested in looking at new potential technical solutions for game content creation, check out Blender 3D.
Just downloaded it the now mal. Nice program indeed, especially as its free. Ive tried some other free packages and they were quite honestly just not up to scratch. As u said initally its like bein thrown in at the deep end but after a while browsing through the interface it all becomes clear, as with most packages. Im gonna spend a bit more time gettin into it later because some of the images of renders are quite amazing. Cheers for the find mal.
