I’m currently looking for any software for CGI. I currently use After Effects and know the ropes there pretty well but I’m really looking to broaden my spectrum of visual effects and I think that would include cgi. I really only see people using 3ds max and was wondering if thats the one to get for a beginner or if theres any others people might recommend. And any tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Daniel! I have another post about this. But go download blender. It’s free and just as good as 3DS max. As long as you know how to use it.
There are a ton of tutorials on that on YouTube. Or just read the manual.
Hope this helped!

Hey thanks! I’ll check out blender and watch some tutorials. Sadly I’m not a student anymore and just work haha. I’ve heard Blender is as good but less user friendly. But free is always good haha

I agree with Connor. Blender is a fantastic tool with a great community. Here are some really good tutorial websites:

If you go with Blender, you’ll find a very nice community full of tutorials and various other bits and bobs on the Net. I already made a post earlier with a link to a very helpful starters guide for Blender that I’m following.
