Thread: CGI Software?

  1. #1

    Default CGI Software?

    Just as Vegas is one of the top leading video editors, who makes the best CGIs? Or is it a plugin I can get for Vegas?

    I don't know them all, but the three applications I have played with in the last 18 months are:

    (1) "After Effects". Expensive and not fully 3d. Trial version available.
    (2) "3d Max". Expensive (Autodesk - 2D and 3D Design and Engineering Software for Architecture, Manufacturing, and Digital Entertainment). Trial version available.
    (3) "Blender" (blender.org - Home). Free.

    One that I have not tried is "Maya", also from autodesk (Autodesk - 2D and 3D Design and Engineering Software for Architecture, Manufacturing, and Digital Entertainment).

    As far as I can see, they can all do the same basic things; but have widely different advanced features.

    I have a feeling they will be extremely complicated to use. I just need a few scenes for a documentary I might be able to find someone that will do them for me. Thanks for the info

    Thanks! I will keep you posted, I need to animate two trees and their roots growing together tangling underground.
