tip: One thing I’d do if I were to model stuff in wings and animate in blender is…do th elow cage in Wings, and let the subdivide done once in blender.
That’d make a greater importing time. Though I have imported the other day a dunno if 250k tris model, if I remember welll, and while it took a time importing, I’d say blender is relatively fast on hi res mesh handling.
metasequoia is probably one of the faster and agile softwares for huge count meshes. Today it loaded an enormous 3d scan in no time.
Indeed, I carefully tested that metasequoia deals better same meshes than Max. Which is not that hard…max eats a load of resources, and only way to go with it and hi res meshes with some comfort is trusting in good cards…(mainly for drawing complex wires…the driver in opengl and dx that comes with it has not allways been very good)
I don’t think Blender is the king of the 3d apps(no one is), but I disagree also with what you say :
“I have tried out blender for some weeks now.
cant get warm with it.
I cant even import a lwo or 3ds object. Afterwards everything looks messed up. Not like the object at all.”
There’s some problem much more related with 3d general problems. There’s a load of stuff that happens when porting a mesh.Can be the other exporter tool fault, even. maybe just u don’t know yet how to set smooth shading, or unwelded geometry (*.3ds format kills this stuff so easily) and a long, long etc.
Also, the power of Blender is -yet- in having knowledge of where are the great plugins for each format. Digging in the plugins forum u should find the latest.
Also, not every format is ideal.I’d recomend OBJ an dtrash *.3ds as soon as you can.It has a 65k tris limit, it cannot have shared UVs (neither md2 or md3) , it breaks often smoothing info, it does not support long names for materials…etc…Go for OBJ.
“I can recommend everyone Metasequoia. At least its reliable, fast, no problem at all.”
I’d agree is more inmediate to learn as is more standard in UI. But that’s only a modeller…while I think is an extremely good one…my second favourite after wings. But none of these really render or animate.
"I have already deleted that confusing , ‘you never know whats going on with it’ software. "
U should be at least more cautious, hehe. But I understand the feeling as I had it once
Blender is very good(trust me), and free. And I am not actually a Blender user. Only a 3d user.
