why would you use Wings 3D and render with Blender? Wouldn’t it make more sense just to make it in Blender?
Wiggie, an artist should use the tools he feels comfortable with using. Everyone percieves 3D in a different way. Our minds all work a little differently, thankfully. Having over 14 years of CAD experience, I find Blender to be a very difficult program to model in, because I’ve done “man-made” models (read: geometrically “primitive”), mostly, and Blender is simply missing much of the functionality of today’s CAD programs that make doing such work so much easier. Wings3D has a lot going for it as a modeler and should not be simply dismissed because its “not Blender”!
Which is what these forums are about, by the way.
I totally disagree! These forums are about creating work that utilizes Blender as one of the many tools to accomplish the goal. To say its “Blender only” is to dismiss a plethora of useful functionality that Blender simply doesn’t offer now, and may never. What about Yafray? What about GIMP (or any other bitmap editor of choice)? What about [insert your favortite artwork-creating software here]? Keep an open mind, in terms of tools, is all…
