Hi
 I'm gonna throw in AC3D into the mix for modelers, seems nice and easy to use to me, there is a free version, but you can also register for some extra plugins and tech support. It will import and export in a number of other formats. There is also a java 3d loader for it in the resources section over at NewDawn software. I'm planning on porting it to whatever comes out of the ashes from java3d (or xith 3d if it takes too long).

Cheers

I've been doing some research on 3D modeling programs lately and this is the list I've come up with. I'm sure it is incompelete and you may can probably find better pricing on some of them. Opinions vary on all of them with everyone having different favorites. Most of them have free versions or demos and I suggest you try the ones you are interested in and find what's right for you. Please feel free to add to this list. All prices are US dollars.

Anim8or is a free Programm and can be found at http://www.anim8or.com it imports and exports a lot of formats.

For newbies and beginners its great, it has a clear interface a lot of tutorials and u can learn the basics of 3D modelling.

For professionals i recommend

Poser 4.x ( v5 is toooo bugggy at the moment )
3D Studio Max

You forgot POV-Ray. That's an unpardonable sin. Wink

(For those of you unfamiliar with POV-Ray, it's a free - source available - ray tracer that's been around since the days of 286s and Compuserve. It produces some really great output and has tons of tools and features.)


You know what?  I TOTALLY forgot about POV-Ray.  It's been about 6 years since I even looked at it.  Thanks!
