Your graphical appliations

I’m tring to get a list of known/unknown apps you use to make art. It can be graphical to sound/music to programming related

For example maybe some use Clay3D i.e http://clay3d.com/. Reason I’m asking of this is I’m have a site in works and need to categorize work.

Photoshop CS2
Aftereffects 6.5 pro
Project Dogwaffle (“PD PRO Painter”)
Illustrator/inkscape for vectors
Rhino 3

Photoshop
Indesign
Illustrator
Scribus
Inkscape
Karbon
Ayam
Moi3D
Pixie (well, will be when i get the damn thing installed)
AutoDesk AliasStudio
PiTiVi if video editing counts (still in development)
Avidemux (again, if video editing counts)

Apps I dont really use but know of are:
AC3D
Open Canvas
pixel image editor (http://www.kanzelsberger.com)

Ill add more once i remember them :)) I had a hugh list before… I left out the major well known apps obviously for the second para…

I use (or have occasionally used), in no particular order:

Blender & Yafray
Wings3D
Paintshop Pro
Poser
POV-Ray
VideoMach
Audacity
Pinnacle Studio
Hexagon
DVD-It (Not really for making art, but for compositing it)
Animation Shop

I’ve played with, but don’t really use:

Xara 3D
Inkulator
Bryce
Anim8or

It’s also not uncommon for me to write code for reading graphics files and creating pieces of meshes, so it might be correct to include:

.NET languages (Visual Basic, C++, C#)
Python

I can only afford free progams, so:

Blender (duh)
GIMP
Inkscape
Artrage free
Audacity (barely at all)

I use some at school but most of these at home:

Blender3D
Photoshop
Flash MX 2004
Sony Vegas
GoldWave
jGrasp(java)
CodeBlocks(c++) <=== just started
Python IDLE

Things I have used in the past and no longer use:
GIMP
Maya
3DS Max
Wings3D
Anim8or
Audacity

Blender
Gimp
xinview( some times it comes in handy)
hdrshop
terragen
4dblue
virtuldub
3dem(reads .dem and export to tarregen)
and all the free renderers I can find
I have been playing with winosi lately

whoa! that artrage2 program is fantastic! I had no idea of it! And it’s quite affordable. Thanks for the link :smiley:

Link!?.. What LINK!!!

sorry was a bit confused :wink:
http://www.artrage.com/artrage.html
It’s mainly an artistic painting program. Simulates oil, chalk, pencil, etc very precisely! Check their gallery, some impressive stuff there.
Gotta get a wacom tablet! (Radscientist would love this one for his new toy)

Home:
Blender + Yafray
Photoshop 5.02
Renoise
Audacity
Virtualdub
Microsoft Gif Animator :smiley:

School:
Blender
3dsmax 8 + Mental Ray
Photoshop CS2
Combustion
After Effects
Macromedia Flash

I used to use:
Photoshop
Sony Vegas
Maya
etc

now I use:
Blender
Gimp
Inkscape
Cinelerra
Ardour

The switch was a matter of principle, not finances. :slight_smile:

I am currently using:

Blender
Photoshop 7

That’s it.

BgDM

Blender
Yafray
Photoshop CS 2

These are my regulars and all that I really need. All of the other stuff (GIMP, Inkscape, ImageReady…) I have is probably useful once in a while but not really necessary…I like to keep it simple.

Oh boy… Most of what I use are OSS tools:

Blender, The GIMP, Inkscape, feh, dvdauthor, Cinelerra, Kino, mplayer/mencoder, ffmpeg, Scribus, Rezound, and OpenOffice.org.

Occasionally, though, I still have the need to use some proprietary apps to do some things that OSS tools can’t or aren’t allowed to do:

InDesign, Acrobat, Quicktime Pro, and Windows Media Encoder

Pencil & Paper :cool:

At the moment, none. See my EEEEEEEEEEk post!

Blender
Gimp
Genetica
Poser
Daz
Bryce
Inkscape

All os which will have to be re-loaded

Well, I use some at school and some at home, so, at home I use:
Blender
Photoshop 7
Bloodshed C++ (as some people like to say a good program is like good art)

At school:
Inventor 8 (we have 10, but its unstable… at best)
Bloodshed C++
Visual C++, seeing as our book is made for visual C++

There is supposidly a copy of 3dSM at our school, and I’d like to see that, but no luck so far.
