Begginer questions, RAD apps in 3D and more

Hello, I am new in 3d world, started reading, and first I discovered Iclone, but figure that Iclone is not native 3d app, it looks more like RAD program for animation and character creation.
Then I discovered Blender and want from beginning dive into 3d world.

But I want to know, does 3d artist using some RAD programs for faster production, and is it iclone for animation and character making? Maybe Iclone is not faster in animation than Blender, but for example making characters from scratch looks so easy in Iclone CC3 ? Point is, does is Blender fine for all, or for faster production some using and some other apps
thanks :slight_smile:

Yes, I would like to know about these “RAD” apps too.
