I've decided to do it in animation because it will be easier for some parts, with the rest being very easy for me to control.
I was wondering, what would be the best software to use, and the easiest for a beginner to pick up on? I could probably find some tutorials, but I'd like some opinions from the community first. Whats got the best plugins, the best renders, the best god-knows-whats? (Those were just terms I've heard thrown around.)
I'd prefer fairly simple to use/learn, some kind of Minecraft kit, and really rather quick.
It's free, powerful (if you are not new to 3d modeling, in which case, if you are, all programs will be a pain in the ass and suck for you), and quite versatile especially if you can utilize the python integration.
Actually, autodesk does support student discounts i believe
Regaurdless, blender is a very powerfull program. Completely capable of doing just about anything you can do in Maya. I strongly reccomend it even though it has a steep learning curve, but then again all good 3d programs do.
Yea its pretty easy to get the free student version, except that it has to be used non-commercially, and everything you make with it has a watermark.
I have the student versions, but i dont get a water mark
