I asked a question sorta like this before but I am just wondering... How do graphics work in C++? Can I use a program to make 3D graphics like 3D Canvas and then use code in C++ to put the animation in the program? I'm not asking HOW to program graphics, I just want to know if you can make graphics with a program like that and then use it. Thanks

Yeah, that's basically how it works, although I've never heard of 3d canvas being used like that. Your graphics engine needs to be able to read the format that the 3d program spits out, or you'll need to write an exporter for it. You should look into a beginners 3d programming book, that will give you a basic idea of the entire art pipeline.
