3D Studio Max is the best. I use that one.

Yeah, 3D Studio Max is used in most all professional 3D works. (Ie Oblivion, Pixar Movies, Someone Told Me Everquest and WoW, and not to mention Kages most awesome 3d renders of computer parts)

Nope, but you can download a 30 day trial

Thanks Paradox, hehe

Yeah, I didn't know Pixar used it, but if they do, they use their own renderer built into it called RenderMan. Never tried it.

Get hold of Vray Free though from the Chaos Group website, and you'll be laughing

Well you could purchase AutoCad or if you got the bucks, get
Massive Software: http://www.massivesoftware.com/
And no, it aint massive, it's the name

I have AutoCad. It's great for 3d design or wht ever you want to do.

I believe 3D Studio Max gives you a lot more freedom in terms of everything else though, as you can still create photorealistic renders with it with the practise.

Well theres Anim8or which is free, but if you then decide to go to Max after, you'll find the transition rather hard. I know I did.

But it does offer quite alot, including most modelling tools, an animation part, and a renderer (pretty basic but it does what it does on the tin)
