    Blender


    Wow I have found this excellent program for my graphics for linux as opposed to Gimp, but i don't know if it is free or not. it looks like something that can do this kind of work would be expensive. has anyone ever worked with Blender or know if it is free or not? it says it is open source, but i know that does not mean free. but after looking around there site, blender3d.com i haven't found any price for anything or anything of that nature.

    yea im getting that alot. i just called my friend over at my ISP who knows all kinds of stuff, and he said the same thing. that he had never heard about it until now. but i am getting good reviews for it from deviantart.com and a book i saw last night at Barnes and Nobles showed that it had some awesome capabilities. and no offense to Gimp ... i want to be able to do more.

    I donít know if blender3d is free or not, but I did use it long time ago and it was free. I remember downloading it for free but it was beta I think so if there is beta then it means the original software would have a price. Well I was stupid enough to delete it but I did not like it anyways. I like such software as Maya, which is the best out there, and it runs on Linux. And there are like 3d max cinema 4d that are much better then blender3d. This was long time ago they could have improve dramatically so I could be wrong about this.

    i got the blender a while ago and it is completly free.
    but you better know your stuff before you get it it is apsolutly impossible to understand.
    i got their linux version so it might be different from the win version but you better have a degree in something before you get it.
    oh and sunday is maya free ? and where do you get it?
    Thanks v much

    yea ... i just downloaded Blender, and whoa nelly is it intensely difficult. Now i know i need to go buy that book on it. And i don't believe Maya is free, or I would have gotten that. same with other software like Bryce and Max 3D s or whatever it is called, they are quite expensive and clearly directed towards professionals who have some dough to throw around.
