bryce 5 is good but i wouldnt recomend it if you are using windows xp as it freezes the taskbar and does not allow you to access any other programs (unless you alt + tab)

It is a good program though and i would recomend it :D

Talk to Nucleo, if anyone could help you with that he could. Try Cinema 4d. Im still learning it, but it seems cool so far. Also look into 3D studiomax, and Lightwave.

just drag ur mouse to the top of the screen, for the button to drop the screen to the taskbar ;)

cinema 4d works on windows, and i dont think it is for mac. (probably works on mac)

well
cinema 4d and bryce work very differently

bryce is like it is
cinema 4d looks more like 3d studio max

i made stuff like THIS in cinema 4d
and THESE in bryce.

cinema 4d makes a more abstract shape, with alot more options (making it more complicated)
Bryce 5 is easier, and you get a nice mould of shapes and collours.

Personally I'm REALLY starting to like Maya...

Can you actually model in Bryce? All the scenes I ever see rendered in Bryce are just basic spheres, torus, cubes, stars, etc. No actual custom objects (people, vehicles, etc.)

Btw, if you don't have 7 grand spare to buy the "Unlimited" version of Maya, they do have a free version for you to play around with. Maya 5.0 PLE (Personal Learning Edition). You can't render with it, but you get a good idea how to use the program, and there is a plugin for it to export models & animations to Unreal Tournament 2004.

For both Maya and 3DSMax though, I highly recommend http://www.3dbuzz.com

It's an absolutely great site, they have video tutorials you can download, great 3D forum.. real nice site.

you guys should really look at 3ds max though, It is difficult to learn but there is so much functionality out of it. Yeah and plus you can model.

I mean damn, if price is the problem, I see it on ebay all the time...costing less that bryce.

like this

Yeah, Max is nice... but still, Maya's better ;)

Maya was used for most of the work in the matrix movies.

Nope, not yet... I've not even figured out how to bone my models properly yet, hehe.

It's a LOT of learning to do :)
