What I want to know is what is the difference between 3ds max and Blender....besides the fact that 3ds max cost a lot of money to use commercially. Are there any differences in the way things turn out in your finished model that are noticeable? when I say this I mean whether your professional or a noob like me. I know a finished model can look good or bad depending on the person whos using the software. I hear 3ds max is used in most of the game design industry. Is Blender also used? I know all 3d software can be hard to use, but 3ds max vs blender, which one would ususally be considered the most difficult? Any other major differences that I didnt ask please do tell me. Ive had thoughts about using blender for awhile, but I first started with 3ds max last year when I was 12...havnt really developed much skill at all since I took a break from 3d software and moved to programming and concept art instead, but I just want to know which one would be a better choice...people have tried to persuade me to use blender instead of 3ds max and stuff because they think its a lot better, but only state like one reason why, and the usually reason is because of money and being able to modify the software. Also what are your opinions on zbrush?
