Hey, guys!
I need to make some 3D graphics for an intro screen of my game Pig Of Revenge, and I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get a good editor? Right now I have "Anim8or," but I was wondering if there was anything better?

Thanks,
Lazarus

Ok, to tell you i would personally recommend lightwave 3d because the modeler is super easy and has alot of features.The animator is also very easy.All you have to do is insert bones in your model and animate the movements.Start with lightwave 3d, the movie maker's secret.

LightWave is a bit of overkill for games lol... I use animation master myself and I would recommend it for animations/prerendered 3d, although the export might not be the best (Havent really used it that much but I think its ok)
