    i just DLed 3dstudiomax5 and found one of the .cab files corrupted
    so stalled once again, while i DL the .cab, i thought i'd put it to you;
    what 3d software do you think is the best?
    did you get a reliable p2p copy?
    what should i use?
    [i'm a very confident user of illustrator and rasta apps like photoshop/fireworks already]

    Really Please
    the 3dsmax5 i DLed from KL is inert shit [see my other post in softwareworld here]
    surely someone must have experience with a 3d application
    what is it?
    tell me how it is
    what are the strengths or weaknesses
    i need some feedback here

    at least what are some alternatives to 3dsmax5? or tell me why you don't use 3d appz if you don't?

    I use 3d Studio Max 5.1. Although I hear good things about Milkshape, which costs $25, if you want affordable. Some people like Maya, others like Poser. It really depends on what you're wanting to do.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    i'd like to learn to draw and eventually animate 3d graphics like i can 2d
    i'd probably be happy to produce web res output for a good while
    how is 3dsmax to learn compared to say Aillustrator?

    I've never heard of Aillustrator before, and Google's just showing me Russian and Japanese sites. So you'll have to show me the site of it, or something. Poser might be what you're looking for, it has huge pre-created libraries to choose different things from (models, animations, etc). 3d max is used more for making game models and the like.

    This is the website for Poser. From what I know of them both, 3d max has a steeper learning curve, but you can ultimately do more with it. Of course, most of the "more" is stuff most people likely don't need.

    I've been doing 3d for 3 years now as a hobbie and it's not what programme you use but who is making the model.
    I use Max 5.1, Maya 4 and Poser 4.
    Each of them have there strenghts over the other.
    Find some tutorials at 3dbuzz.com and go from there.

    Something i have noticed is that most 3d programmes are becoming more alike so there really is'nt much diff.
    I just found Max the easiest to get around in and really no 3d prog is easy to get around in to start with.

    Hope that helps mate.
