Hey everyone, sorry if this has already been discussed, but, I really want to start leaning 3d, so I can make some extra money around here. What programs should I start with? And/or resources should I use to start learning? Thanks guys.

Cinema 4d & 3D S Max. Mostly Cinema 4d though. I think Cinema 4D has a more user friendly layout.

Cheers

I’m using 3ds Max and Vray for rendering process. But i think Cinema 4d is a good start for a newbie :P

Well… in your opinion, what’s the difference in Cinema 4D and 3D?

I would give Modo from Luxology a try. They have a trial version on their website.

It’s powerful and not really that expensive compared to other packages out there and the community is awesome.

I will use 3ds max, maya, zbrush, and modo, and maybe to do the really hard stuff i will go with Ms Paint!

I would start with cinema 4d because it is more user friendly interface, for newer users. 3DS Max is great but not as easy to use as Cinema for a newbies.

You can create pretty nice files in Cinema. I think it would be great for you to learn on. Also Blender is great and it is free.

Cheers
