Anyone know of any good 3d apps that are free? I lack the cash necessary to pay for all the commercial software, so for 3d i use freeware. I currently have Strata3Dbase and Blender. Any other suggestion for free 3d software?
hmmmm…nurbana, povray, and erm… hmmm… gmax is pretty ok… blender of course, kicks all their asses…
:o YAWN wings, loq airou, teddy, lime…, magazine cd’s,
this is such a boring year for 3d, I miss game blender,n
3d is solw slow. Learn how to paint, you will have to anyhow. Textures
there is a thread somewhere around here I started on free software that has a good list that you could use. Ahh. …ya… here it is:
have fun !!!
It’s under Linux
so I don’t know how good it is
it’s under active development though.
Amapi 4.15 is free from the eovia.com web site. It’s a fairly capable, commercial grade 3D app for modeling, rendering and animation.
found it @ http://amapi.idevgames.com/
This is sweet.
Export to RENDERMAN *.RIB FILES!!!
There is a windows only program called openfx that used to be commerical. I read some where that it was called soft f/x. It has GPLed source code now. It has IKA , can load/export its own format as well as 3DS and DXF as well as skeleton information. Standard type windows interface. The developer community doesn’t seem to be to active on it. I had pulled down the source to look at it, to see about what it would take to make it cross-platform. It was built with Visual C++ with Microsoft non-ansi data types and seems to have a mix of OpenGL, D3D coding in it. Not a weekend project for quick conversion, IMHO.
You can find it at www.openfx.org.
