Corel is releasing service pack for X5 sometime in the next couple of months. Hopefully will make X5 more stable for those having issues.Know what you mean, I have 3DStudio Max 8, but I still have version 3 on the system in case they have change modified or rework a feature that was solid on the earlier version, I still drop back to Corel 8 but I've finally got a handle on 12 and any tricks to work around changes, hope to have 15 soon
Same here. I downloaded trials of Maya and others and while I could produce some decent results (mainly shiny objects with reflections etc,) I was never at the level that I wanted to be and I just gave it up. Maybe if I would have stuck with it like I did with graphic design programs I would be a pretty good sculptorgod bless you guys and the 3d stuff. i've tried in the past but that's something i could never wrap my head around. "wrap my head around"........3d ........get it? yeah it's that bad. yikes!
looks good. just gotta wait for the mac version. tick. tock.You guys should give ZBrush a shot. It's interface is much less technical than others I've used (3DS, Cinema4D) and is very similar to modelling with real clay. It has a much more organic feel to it.
Best of all, it's quite a bit cheaper (at $595) than most other 3D programs too...
Here's a link to the trial:
