If you’re like me you occasionally need to do something in a 3D program but you don’t want to shell out thousands of dollars. I want a 3D program I just can’t justify that kinda money, I don’t need it that much.
In going through the tutorials on VideoCopilot.net I learned about Blender. Blender is a free 3D program and a pretty sophisticated one at that. Even thought it’s free you still get a complete 3D toolset with materials and physics, pretty impressive.
I may dive into it deeper but for now I’m just using it as a tool to help composite in After Effects. Using blender I can create some true 3D title graphics or create and edit other 3D objects to export into AE. If I get real courageous I may use it to create some better models for when I use Light Converse. I need some better people models in there.
