I Finally did it!!! here’s the URL to my quickie test lizard movie
UPDATE: Currently I’m also working on making a 3 or 5 horned dragon, using the same method as the lizard, I gotta admit, after having read through all the tutorials, I’ve improved.
UPDATE2: being a college student, I got access to the 3d design computers that I will hopefully use one of these semesters. They had 3ds Max 6 (educational edition) and, I hate to say this, but after like 5 minutes. I thought… This sucks!!! I ended up begging for a comman that was at least somewhat similar to blender. 20 mins passed and I ended up getting frustrated. the only thing I could do well was choose from the programs library of pre-made trees and I thought, this sucks even worse! are you telling me that proffesional programmers who use 3ds max are just that damn lazy to make their own trees, they need the program to do it? (mind you, I don’t mean to offend any animators here who use 3ds max… I just feel that with those options, I feel like the program isn’t really encouraging me to learn and be creative) Sorry if I offended any 3ds max users out there, I just feel that paying 3000 dollars on a program that, to begin with, you could get for free (in the guise of blender) and has not only all the options of 3ds max, but it has extra features as well… sorry but I’d rather go with blender. Blender rocks! and I hope that it will remain a free software till the end of time, especially for people like me who wish to do animation, but don’t have the money to pay for it.
anywho. here’s the same link, only in orange so you can click on it, in case the URL above doesn’t work.
