3d animation

Recommended Posts

hey I wanted to make a simple cut scene for a game in 3d I have milkshake at the moment but am still learning how to use it. Basically what I want to know is what is a good program to use. My friend recomended Maya but it would be awhile before i can afford that so maybe something cheaper for now as practice what do you think?

Try Blender, it's free. The user interface isn't what I would call noobie-friendly, but just work through the tutorials and you'll find that it is quite feature rich.

Blender is indeed the best modeler you can get for free in my opinion (just look at some movies on Blender3d.org), it can do everything a commercial 3D package like 3D Studio Max or Maya can with a little bit extra effort.

The Blender interface can be very intimidating, but you will love it ones you'll get the hang of it. Just take a little hour for this, I recommend reading this (link to PDF - 11mb)

After you have learned the interface, you schould take a look at this guide.
And ofcourse, other nice tutorials can be found at the offical Blender webpage, and if you have any questions, you can ask them on Elysiun forums.
