Default 3D Software - 11-10-2011, 10:32 AM

Hi guys-

I'm used to Maya, I learned it when I was at a production facility. I'm on my own now, wanting to do some camera projections of some personal work, but I can't afford to buy it - Maya 2012 costs $3500. 3D Studio Max seems to be the same price. I thought Cinema 4D would be cheaper, but I don't think it is. I'm not familiar with the reputation of Lightwave or Modo.

I hate the thought of downloading valuable software for free. I know many people do it but I don't want to. Are there any software options out there for 3d modeling/camera projection that are easy to learn and don't cost a fortune?

Blender - is free, but it looks completely different from what I know from Maya, could take a long time to transition. I don't have the interest in learning a new piece of software that isn't used in many of the big studios.. or is it being used?

Appreciate any help you can offer.
-Gary
