    Default A 3D modeler render for $10

    Ok so its a bit of a viral marketing ploy but there is this one I had not heard of which is normally super dear going for $10 only if enough people buy it. Any good to anyone ?

    Wow, that's awesome. I ordered the Pro version. I've always thought it was an interesting field but way out of my area of expertise and certainly price range. I just hope I can find the time to use it if they reach the goal. I'm sure it'll be another way to burn my free time. Thanks, I think

    I got it (er hope to get it if enough people go for it!) for the caustics and the subsurface scattering (which Bryce doesn't have), I wish Vue or Natural Scene Designer would put out an offer like this, I'd snap it up in a second!

    I would really love to play with all the rigging stuff, but I think that would be one hobby too far for me!

    I downloaded the demo version and the UI doesn't look user friendly. Anyway, I'll give it a try and with the price you can't do anything wrong.
    Oh, yes Vue... They halfed the prices for all versions a few weeks ago before the new version came out, but still too expensive.

    Their progress bar is moving really fast now. I dropped $40 on the pro version yesterday and it was just barely over 50%, now its past 75%.

    I had to think about it until payday to make sure I wasn't succumbing to my normal impulse-buy techniques, but in the end $1100 software for $40 was too good to pass up. I'm in too.

    That was part of my thinking as well Gidde. Plus, after watching some of the "Plankton Invasion" stuff I just had to have it.

    I thought id sling the link out just in case but it seems that its taken up some traction. I wasn't going to buy a copy actually. I am more into the content creation or the object modeling side of things than the renderer or animation. So before this bar whoops up to the finish line. Am I right in thinking this is for character animation more than character creation ? Does it have a modeller in it ? I just dont do bones, hair and deformations etc. Would I ever need this ? But $10... maybe I should just do it anyway ?
