I know some people may think this is a waste of time, but can someone explain me, why all 3d programs look a like, such as Blender, Maya, XSI, Lightwave, etc, whats the base, from where, all are coming from? I mean, is there a sort of convention or something? that developers, programmers use to start coding this programs ? (yes, because they can even export models, in some cases, animations, between them. It would be really hard to create a 3d program from ZERO, and then happen to find a way to export projects to the “same language” other programs understand - So, theres must be something about this theme).
I never used other program, then Blender, but when I see tutorials or even screenshots, or descriptions about functionalities, they all resamble in functions others got. I believe theres a base for all this and I would love to know more about this theme. Its really fascinating, I really believe in Programmers and developers, they’ve got a HUGE talent! But theres must be more, that it could let understand this people work, otherwise I believe this people are hyper intelligent, out of this world.
While you think about giving any information about this, i’m going to have a look at http://design.osu.edu/carlson/history/lessons.html
Sorry about sounding stupid, but I’m really amazed about this achievements in programming, etc,
Thanks for your time!
