Hi Everyone Im new here and i have been looking at alot of the graphic threads, I have been intersted in 3D graphics/Rendering and animation, modelling and the lot. But now i am confused and i dont know what is the best programme for the job, because i dont want to spend my money on a fancy lookng programme and find out its not goign to the the write job. Exactly what i want to achive is mainly two things-3D house designs mesh/line -Animated pictures like, planes, planets,boats, and alot of the other stuff. i dont think i made this one quite clear. So here is a few pictures belowe. If some one thinks they cold suggest some good programmes please let me know, im interested in photoshop sense these pictures were produced by that, but im now sure they will produce the large scale house designs im looking for. Thanks for any help. And a extra thanks to Star Fox who produced the pictures, Any tutorials are welcome aswell.

Photoshop is a 2d image program, if you're looking to do something in 3d then you should look elsewhere.

Lady English is turning around in her grave about now... Anyway, the first sun is some kind of filter job because i recall making one in the wee days. You're talking about creating houses , but for 3d drawings you need a 3d program , not photoshop. Here are a few: -3D studio max 7 -Lightwave 3d -Zbrush 2 (works different to all other 3d programs and is best for organic drawings. Starting out iwth zburhs may end you up very confused)

FireThroneand what would be the best for 3D stuff?[/QUOTE] Best? Houdini or Softimage XSI, a bit out of most people's price range though. Good? Maya, 3ds Max, Rhino, Lightwave. [QUOTE=FireThrone]here are 2 planets could they be rotated and changed in photoshop?

No. Well, you could change them a little bit but not as in picking it up and looking at the other side or anything like that.

Technically as your monitor displays on a 2d plane, no. A 3d object is something that is 'rendered' out into a 2d image, it contains all the information which would be need for the computer to calculate how it would look from any given angle. The thing you show as an image is just a 2d image, the result of the computer's calculation.
