Why Blender

There are a lot of 3D animation programs out there. I've chosed Blender(external link) for us to work in.
Blender is free and open-source. It has pretty well all the options and bells and whistles of any of the other "big" software packages has.
Maya has a pretty good rendering engine. But you can do photo-real 3D rendering in Blender. So I'm not giving Maya the advantage in rendering by much.
3DS Max is nice too. And so is Cinema 4D and a million other programs out there.
But the fact is we can do fine work in Blender. We can use it on Macs, Linux, and PC's.
And it's free.

Besides, our favorite artists use Blender.
