Software recommendation please?

Hi, I have a question if anyone knows about the softwares for 3d modeling. I have been using daz for a while now and been having a good time with it.

I really want to start learning how to make my own things like props and stuff. I watch video tutorials and have download blender. It is ok but I don't feel like interface is very friendly. I have some money to spend on softwares but i want to make sure i spend it best.

Can someone recommend best one for newcommer like me?

Oh darn  I see there is a area for 3d modeling. If mod wants to move this question there, it might be better. Thanks.

I haven't tried these but someone suggested them to me a while back. Thery both free. Freecad and Sculptris. Sculptris is like a basic version of Zbrush to see what that's like. I hope that helps.

Thank you for the links. I did see sculptris before. I do have money to spend so don't need just free programs I have blender.

Anyone knows about difference between maya zbrush 3dmax and cinema4d and have used them before? I been watching lots of vidoes and still cant decide. Thanks!!!

I am also interested in this.  I would also love to know about 3D painting recommendations too. Like Substance painter or 3D coat?

@3DCG23 --- I only make simple props, so I haven't gone with any of the big software, but I use Silo. It's a powerful program for like 99 bucks. https://nevercenter.com/silo/


@3Digital --- I haven't used 3D Coat, so I can't give you a comparison. But I do use Substance Painter and I love it.

If the regular 2.79 version of Blender is doing your head in, which it does to the best of us, google for the 2.8 beta version.

If sculpting is in your plans the newer streamlined interface, left click selection and dedicated, cleaner sculpting interface may work better than the dog's breakfast they call 2.79

Took me a while to get used to blender, but now I LOVE it, it is really powerful and best of all free :)

My Likes:

  • If free - Blender - As to it's learning curve, put your mind, time and effort in to it and you'll be surprised how easy it actually is to use.
  • If paid - Cinema 4D ( which has an absolutely amazing user friendly interface), 3DS Max, Modo
  • Sculpting - ZBrush is King. If you have the Blender is difficult mentality then you'll have the same for this software

There are of course many others on the Market of which many are good, some average and others just plain CRAP! I won't say it out loud 'hexagon'
