3-D Design Software

Anyone know of any free or relatively cheap 3-D Designing software? For modeling and animating?

I've used CyberMotion 3D-Designer and 3DS Max at work. (I've also used AutoCAD for drawings) I've found a few that will do modeling but nothing for animating without putting watermarks on every frame.


I know a whole dick all with 3d modeling.

What about Google sketch up ?

I'll have to give it a try to see. It reads like you can just do camera adjustments / motion for the animation in it though and not object adjustments & motion. But it may be the best I can get for the price I'm looking for haha.


I did some searching and found exactly what I was looking for and it's free. In case anyone was looking for there self.


There is lots of good tutorials on youtube as well.
