Thread: 3D rendering software

  1. 3D rendering software

    I have to learn how to do basic 3D rendering (for creating images, not animation or games etc), and have no idea which software to get. Since I have no idea how to do rendering, I need something that is powerful and n00b friendly (until I get the hang of it). Any suggestions?

  2. Exactly why kind of 3d rendering are you talking about? What's an example of something you'd like to do?

  3. For getting started, Caligari TrueSpace is the easiest to use. It's incredibly intuitive. Although feature-wise it's very powerful, I don't find it really well suited to making really detailed models, but you can get more basic stuff done in a fraction of the time. Fast to learn, too. It's almost like a toy.

    Once you get more comfortable and willing to invest more time check out Maya or 3D Studio.

    For rendering? Renderman or Bonefish.

    For modeling? Maya is the only way. MEL script was handed down from on high.

    Maya is the professional tool of choice it seems. I don't know too much about it, but whenever I'm browsing throught the post-production mags at work, whenever there is modeling being done for film, they always are using Maya.
