    Learning 3D

    Whats a good thing to learn how to do some simple 3D? what s a good program to start with and a learning resource?

    I guess 3d Studio Max isin't the best place for 3D newbie to start is it?

    any advice would be good, I'm not looking to become a worker at Pixar , just want to do some cool effects in can apply to graphics etc.

    Bryce is extremely easy to use and gives great landscape effects.

    3D studio is OK if you get past the initial !!!! of the interface.

    There are quite a few basic packages out there. It has been a while since I was actively in the game, so I would suggest a look over at www.3dbuzz.com and ask in the forums there. You can also pick up some great FREE learning CDROMS.

    If you go the 3DSMAX way, great newbie link:

    I have access to 3DSMAX I think it's version 4 or something like that but is the best tool for a complete newbie to start?

    I also have access to Byrce 5 and Poser and I can buy other 3D software if it will be of use.
