I would like to thank everyone that posted in this thread… your feedback/help is very appreciated
Hmmm free is hard to beat… especially when softwares like C4D are about 6K$ CAD!!
I have no experience with CGI or 3D modelling softwares. The only experience I have is about 6 months with Final Cut Pro which I used to create a 20 minute short film
But I feel like I would like to add more special effects in my films and so I have been looking around at softwares like C4D, Houdini, 3DS Max and of course Blender. The sales point of many of these softwares with a high price tag is they tut that they are simpler to use.
Well here are some of my questions:
- Can I use B on MAC?
- Can I take an bunch of images of an item from all sides of a car… and then bring in all those images and stitch them together so I can create my own 3D model?
- If #2 is possible to do in B, can I then manipulate my 3D object so it looks like it breaks apart or gets smashed up ?
- When a 3D animation is made in B, can I save it to a file type that Final Cut Pro recognizes so I can use it in my film?
- To accomplish #4, do I need a FCP plug-in such as the MO2 plug-in made by MotionVFX to bring in a 3D model object created with B into FCP?
Anyways that’s all I can think of for now!
Thank you so much for your guidance/help
