View Full Version : 3D Program

I just want some opinions here. What's a good 3D modeling program that:
1. can create models and animations
2. is easy to learn for someone who knows practically nothing on the subject
3. I can download for free

*puts on best Jar Jar voice* any help here would be hot.

Milkshape 3D is really easy to learn, however if does not allow you to UV unwrap your models, so you'd have to have someone with 3Dsmax to do it.

Gmax is another free one that is almost identical to 3Dsmax I have heard, but i'm not sure, i never downloaded that because my 56k is too slow.

You can search those out on google methinks.

(if you look in the modeling forum they have a stickied post about modeling help)

free? ha... the best ones arent free. in fact, they're very expensive. it also depends on that kind of 3d modelling you want to do.

GMax is good for after you get used to Milkshape I think. :)

Here (http://www.discreet.com/products/gmax/) (<- ) you'll find gmax, tutorials, etc. It's really good.
