Looks like the Softimage programs had a price drop. While looking over the sites, I discovered I had to move 2/3's of the Softimage programs down by a whole price category.

I like mine better. It's up-to-date and categorized. :D

Thanks though, I'll go through that eventually and pick out the ones that are still valid for use.

Hello everyone. Sorry that I've been away so long, had a shift in priorities.

But, I haven't abandoned GameDev. I'll see if I can get around to doing the updates on my 2 threads soon.

Thanks as always.

And, I fixed a bunch of links which weren't going directly to the product page anymore. Also, a few products have had a change in price. LightWave 3D and Houdini Escape have both dropped by an entire price category!

Maybe we could add the MakeHuman project (http://www.dedalo-3d.com/) to the list... It's like an open-source version of poser, but not quite as powerful (yet).

And while it might not be suited for in-game models, it could still be usefull for game art, reference, etc.

Oh, and how about adding alias sketchbook pro to the list (2d, $100+)

Ok, updated with those two. Thanks.

and they do mention that MakeHuman can be used for game models. And if any software is being presented as such, I'll include it.

Paint .NET - Similar to MS's Paint, but improved...good for quick, basic 2D changes. Supports JPG, GIF, BMP, PNG, and a couple other formats. Oh, and it's free.
