i'd tell you, but you'd just make popup ads with it.

The place to go for those looking to kick the M$ habit is here. If anyone has any experience with getting a 3D program to work (there are a few listed) I would be glad to hear of it. I'm not a graphic artist however as an network technician I like to dabble in all things computer and have found GIMP to be excellent for image manipulation (go figure) but I like Sodipodi for basic graphic creation (squares, boxes, stars, et cetera). It kind of sux having two programs to replace on but then you look at the pricetag of PhotoshopCS compared to that of GIMP and Sodipodi and you can't help but fix yourself a nice bowl of shuttheheckup. Hope this helps.

I don't know if it is what you are looking for, but Blender is very much like Maya. It is available for WIndows and Linux and is free....check it out....

good luck

A mate of mine used to use Dreamweaver, but now he's on Linux he recommends Bluefish: http://bluefish.openoffice.nl/ take a look.

I would have to agree. Bluefish is an excellent tool. I use it exclusively for creating/maintaining the 4 sites in my charge. Be warned however, it is NOY a WYSIWYG web editor (like that bloated P.O.S. FrontPage), you're gonna need to know HTML, CSS, JScript or whatever else you want to use....

good luck

Software for 3D/2D Artists

Hi there
I'm a web designer / 3d Animator and have just upgraded to Linux (SuSE 9.1).

I run a wacom intuous tablet, Maya 6, photoshop 7, Illustrator 10, flash mx , dreamweaver mx and IE 6 - all in linux (the later for web development purposes only). All of these apps, bar maya, require codeweavers crossover plugin to werk. I use version 3.01.

After 2months, without having to launch my dual boot version of XP to get a job finished, I can finally say that I've migrated to linux as a designer without to much trouble. The initial setup and learning curve was the major expense for me. My ATI 9200 gfx card, whilst detected, didn't support 3d acceleration out of the box. Getting it to werk taught me alot about linux, which was good... but not what I wanted at the time. Now I've finally managed to get both 3d support and dual monitor support enabled. Printer setup was a breeze. Getting access to my ntfs external usb drive was an exercise in google research, but werked out well. I ended up buying a second drive, formatting it as 'ext3' and copying the ntfs data into it. Its alot easier to find applications that can read and write to ext3 than to ntfs. Windoze doesn't like to share or play nice with the any other kids in the playground.

As far as applications go, I found this link to be absolutely priceless when kitting out my studio with linux supported applications:
http://www.linuxforum.com/forums/ind...howtopic=53452 (Its the article by Dark_Night - 3posts down)

Hope this all helps.
If you need any more info, contact me from me folio site (www.tropt.com > contact).

Cheers
tropt
