I just signed up on this cozy forum becaues I could not find concrete answers elsewhere.
Basically, I have been doing editing, motion graphics and animation with the Adobe CS5 softwares like Premiere Pro, After Effects and Flash. Recently I have decided to widen my skills with 3D modeling and animation. I know it is a big topic, but I am a generalist freelancer and in many cases have to do the project alone from start to end, hence need to know as many usefull tools as I can.
So the question is, will Blender be a suficient tool to do simple 3D animations of mainly 3D text and pre-made 3D models to incorporate some 3D into my projects?
The reason why I ask is because I have some friends who do 3D work fulltime and they said that I souldn’t waste time with Blender and go straight to Cinema4D or 3DsMax.
What do you say?
(Please only comment if you actually have real life experience with Blender)
