What do you use for 3D graphics? Of course Maya and 3DS Max are best, but I think AC3D (ac3d.org) is the best for the price. It lacks many features, but it is still very powerful. I'm still learning to use it, but it's great so far :D

I dont do 3D modelling or anything related.
I only do 2D in my beloved Photoshop.
I've heard that 3DSMAX and Lightwave is very good, well, they are most known ones.
Maya is the best I think but it's VERY VERY expensive.

I haven't really done any 3d. I downloaded a free program[blender] a few days a go and don't even know what to do. Uninstalled it though yesterday. There are quite a few free ones though that I think I will be trying out.

Fred, but who even buys there software anymore? Honestly, Kazaa and other programs of there ilk have forever changed how people get their software, along with the cd burner. Anyways, I want to learn how to do 3D rendering, but is it really hard to enter, or just to get good at it?
Looking for a Flash/Graphics Designer with a lot of expierience? PM me and we'll talk!

I have one Fred. To me it isn't worth the risk using P2P software, they have been cracking down on people that trade big-name software (as they should). If you want a free / cheap industrial strength 3d modeling / render program try http://www.strata.com/

Hehe. It looks quite hard at first but once you go threw tutorials and play with it for a while it isn't so hard.
