Spesso leggevo che il quartetto formato da Blender - Wing3D - Yafray - Gimp è

molto apprezzato e soddisfacente dal punto di vista produttivo (ovviamente

nell'ambito open source).

Wings3D x modellare - subdivision modeler (http://www.wings3d.com/).

Blender x l'animazione e la gestione dei progetti (anche x modellare) (http://www.blender3d.com).

Yafray x il rendering (http://www.yafray.org).

+ Gimp per la grafica raster (http://www.gimp.org/).

Gimp per capacità e versatilità è considerato il Photoshop open source.

Photoshop chiaramente è photoshop (non si discute).

Provare per credere... recensiti anche su Computer Gazette.

WOW!

Per una novizia come me, carica di buone intenzioni ma carente di denaro, questa è la strada per il paradiso virtuale!!!

Certo, arrivo con un discreto ritardo, visto il periodo della discussione...ma ho pensato di scrivere lo stesso per ringraziare, anche a distanza di tempo, l'autore della discussione! GRANDE! :Clap03:

...e magari, chiedergli se pensa che possa sostituire 3dsmax e photoshop con blender e gimp...è lecita questa domanda? :rolleyes:

Grazie! :)

Ciao! :hello:

(Spero di non aver sbagliato posto! :unsure: )
