I randomly got Blender a few weeks ago, just to see if I could wrap my head around it. So far, no dice, but it looks like a lot can be done with it. It's weird that it's free.
offset by inefficient help/education materials, the UI used to be WAY, WAY worse(they really improved that a lot, believe it or not), and they make their money by selling the better tutorials/learning materials.
Pretty nice examples everyone. I played around with this stuff a lot in high school. I think the fact that back then it took sooooooo fucking long to render anything (and I had a decent gaming computer with a nice graphics card for the time) that I just gave up because I had to wait like 10 minutes to find out if the changes I made would be worth a damn lol.
Not enough free time for me to pick up something like this again. I'll try to remember the software I used to use. It is now all freeware/abandonware and pretty easy to pick up and get some quick OK ish results.
Edit: I am pretty sure the seperate programs I used to have are all now Daz 3D studio. Seems like a similar scheme as this Blender. Software is free, then they have other stuff you can buy.
These are old.i still use blender as well as modo and 3ds max,but i am currently relearning after my bi.
but i am far better now too bad i lost alot of renders since a crash in 2012.
anyway keep at it,it is easier than you think!
Blender is a very complete software, and the fact that is free and open source makes it a great tool. Now that many software companies are going for the subscription model, having a free resource like that is... priceless
On a personal note: i've always been fascinated by music and visuals learning. It obviously involves our brain's ability to absorb and progress. If i think to my first 3d renders i can definitely compare them to my first shitty music beginning. Then the brain starts to pile informations and experience... and you find yourself years later wondering how you arrived so far. Same thing with animation, photography and film. I love all of them but the beginning is always very daunting.
