I have a question, I got a magazine(3d world) a few weeks ago and on the cd it came with it has 2 3d software on it. One is Wirefusion 3.2 and the other is WF-3D 2.0. They say there worth alot of money and they look like good programs but does anyone ever use them or hear of them?

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.

you might be interested to add Modo, a new 3D modeler that's really really nice, mixes lots of cool concepts from other modeling packages (I see it as a lightwave++++), has a really easy to use UI imo, handle ngons subds (not like lightwave), and comes with some nice demo models, you can check their site for more infos:

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.

An update to the list has been done with all of the above-mentioned software.

Thanks!

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+)

### #99Veovis  Members

Posted 02 February 2006 - 01:10 PM

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.
