3D Studio Max Alternatives

Recommended Posts

GrandMLee    122
I can''t afford to get 3D Studio Max. +$3,000 is about 100 times my price range right now. What are some good alternatives that use the same basic user interface? Does anyone know how much Maya costs? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

There is always Blender, Moray (a front end for POV Ray that i really like)

I''d give Moray a try, I learned a lot on it. do a search for MORAY 3D on google and it should come up.

Heh. Bad, bad, bad idea. Autodesk (The makers of 3D studio/owners of discreet) are famous for prosecuting software piracy cases. Even against students or the underage. And they do occasionally investigate low budget products that are using 3DS models. Remember, in the US one instance of software piracy can cost you up to $200,000.

GrandMLee, ''warez'' is just cracker jargon for software piracy, that is, obtaining and using software without paying for it.
