I need opinions on what 3D Modeling Software I should use. I am a 2D artist freelancer and could be 3D if I didn't have the Student Version of 3ds Max 2012 (aka can't sell or make profit off the models I make). So I'm looking for a cheaper solution and easy to get into program. Blender is out of the question. Period. I'm trying Silo which I was recommended but my concerns are it's navigation in the viewport and mapping and other clinks. There probably isn't a better solution then the those two and my choices are limited. But I'd like to hear what you guys use but 3ds Max I jumped into it and I was modelin' away with a day without even help/tutorials but every other one I've used is eh. So yea, any suggestions?
