Ok, I tried 3Ds MAX at our school, and it was absolutely stunning. I was already kidding around with modeling, but I never got my hands on real modeler. I was always disappointed with results, and I thought that it was just because I sucked at it. Now, when I have tried 3Ds Max for around 4 hours, I know it wasn’t me what sucked. It’s totally incredible tool. It was my first experience with it, and I already got into it, and possibilities started flowing through my head.
Problem is - I can’t get it.
- It’s expensive as hell
- It doesn’t run under Wine, and I can’t get Windows right now.
Please let’s not discuss how I could and how I should get 3Ds MAX. I want to look know about alternatives.
I don’t really care about how simple is learning of it, nor how intuitive it is. I have already mastered few obscure interfaces, and I say -bring it on.
Only thing I really want, is as powerful and useful tool I can get my hands on. Please list everything good, and what you use for modeling.
