Thanks for that tip! I had downloaded the newest version of blender and was looking at older tutorials.

Blender is the best thing ever, for beginners and for experts.

Also, try Google Sketchup, I used it to design some levels in a small videogame I did.

Good luck


I had google sketchup downloaded for a little while but just couldn't get the hang of it! I'm trying to learn blender, coding, and writing a game design document all at once...I'm busy!

So I downloaded blender, just have to read those tutorials!



One of the most confusing things about getting started with Blender is the windowing system. This postmay help you a bit. As you can see, you can actually quite easily customize the heck out of Blender, but its a bit confusing at first.


Thanks for the link! I opened blender up, then closed it...It LOOKS pretty hard to understand, but the link should help! Thanks!

Thanks to everyone for the info! I contacted Autodesk last week but never got a reply, don't know what that's about.... If I have time I'll download cinema4d but I'll check out Blender first! What program has the least steep learning curve? Or all they all like that?

Hi All!

So i recently asked a question "UDK or Unity, the best engine for beginners?" And as i explored Unity a little more i realized i'll need a 3d modelling software. From Autodesk i can get a free software and spent 2 hours downloading Autodesk Maya 2013 and reached a corrupted files message when installing after the download, so i figured i'd start over and figure out which one is best.

So for a beginner, which 3d modelling software do you think is the easiest, most helpful, and with some pretty good features?

i've heard of a few

Maya
3ds max
Cinema4

(getting sidetracked: did anyone else try to download Maya 2013 and get a corrupted files message and to redownload?)


Thank you for all the info, as you help my journey as an indie game dev. greatly!
