Smile Blender alternatives?


Hi,

Okay, if this question has been posted here (in some or other form) then I'm sorry for this...just point me in the thread's direction

Okay, so, for anyone out there who knows me, Blender has been acting up on me...better yet, it has NOT, in fact, Blender crashes all the time.
So, I tried it on a clean install (Arch, 512Mb, XFCE and an nVidia GeForce 6200) and it comes back with something ultra-cryptic like "bad instruction"...wow.

So, now I've had it with Blender (sorry for the Blender gang - I loved Blender, but it's time to shoot the thing down) and am looking for an alternative. I'm looking for a modeller that can export to several formats.

All/any/funny/weird/zany feedback is welcome!

Thor

Well. it'll cost you, but Cinema4D v11.5 (not V12 or later) works a treat using wine. There is, apparently, a native Linux version, but it's only made available to the studios and is not on general release.

For native Linux, there are a couple of modellers out there, but TBH I've tried them and they are incredibly limited. They simply can't hold a candle to Blender or commercial solutions. Maybe as time passes and development time is put in they will improve, but for now your choices are pretty much Blender or commercial+wine.
