I started playing with it recently, and it’s pretty interesting.
The UI is pretty unintuitive at the start, especially after being used to other packages, but as I’ve gotten to grips with it a bit, I’ve found it’s grown on me.
I’m wondering whether anyone else has played with blender, and what their experiences have been like? How would you rate it compared to Max etc? I’ve only started with it, and I’d be interested to hear if anyone has looked into it in depth.
I’m also interested, because Blender is free, and I’d be curious to see whether people think it might one day catch up to, or even eclipse (no pun intended) commerical tools?
Had a brief look at it when I started out first so haven’t really used it enough to form an opinion. I do know that it is a competant modelling app and fan support is huge. Check out some work done with Blender here: http://www.blender3d.org/cms/Images.151.0.html
