#4952494 total noob here. Can you recommend a c++ compiler?

Posted by HeinrichSchtark on 24 June 2012 - 06:39 PM

Hellooww! I fell like i should share my EPIC quest in finding an IDE for C++, because i have Tried MANY!!!

I would say that MS Visual C++ 2010 is a great choise, and i think is the most popular. BUT ....

Looking and surfing i found that the one i like the most is the QT IDE, http://qt.nokia.com/products/

The Qt Creator is just awesome for programming in C++, and its cross-platform, so you can write your code once and compile anyware.
It also has the whole Qt framework for programing graphic interface in C++ in case you want to write software.

BUt if you just like to learn C++, you can do a plain C++ project on the Qt Creator and its really smooth.

I prefer Qt Creator over MS Visual C++


#4952491 Best 3d modelling software for beginners?

Posted by HeinrichSchtark on 24 June 2012 - 06:31 PM

Hello! I found myself asking that same question a few months ago, and this is what i can tell you ....

Whatever software you learn and feels comfortable for you will be the right one.
I've red COUNTLESS articles and forums asking ppl to tell me what is the best 3d modeling suit and so far the best answer (and most wise) was just that!

There are many 3d Suits that will do the job just fine

3ds Max, Maya, Blender, etc ...

You need to focus in the learning process of 3d modeling, and then decide which piece of software to use.

I personally recommend using Blender: http://www.blender.org/ especially for beginners! It has a Great community and lots of tutorials online.
It has great, Great Potential and ITS FREE! and Open Source.

But the main reason is because its actually really easy to use, it has a very nice and smooth learning curve and it could really open your eyes to the 3D way of viewing things.

I also learned how to use 3ds Max, because its has some advantages that others dont, and its more difficult, but the idea is the same.

My conclution is: Dont abandon any piece of software, use them, try them out, see how it feels to work with it .... and then.... make a choise, but my guess is that you will end up loving Both Posted Image
