Blender is pita to learn , it took me almost 6 months to get were I felt comfortable like IN 3d max , but once you knew the hotkeys and zooming/panning /edit cursor placement …KABOOM
That’s exactly my point, i don’t have those 6 months, not the time, desire and not the patience, but i still want to make an occational 3D model for fun and i choose simpler apps for that. I made this in about 15 minutes in Paint 3D for instance:
I don’t even know where i would start in Blender and would probably spend hours. Of course Paint 3D is a toy, but it has some very nice features that makes simple things like this super easy.
You misunderstand, i do not compare Blender with MS Paint, those are two very different things and not comparable. My comparison was about the time consumption i’m willing to spend to get a simple job done, like you said, you spent 6 months getting comfortable with blender. I have maybe spent an hour in Paint 3D and it’s so dirt simple that makes it fun to play around with. I don’t need half of the features in Blender and i’m not gonna make 3D movies or 3D games.
I’m just not being inspired to do work in Blender, i wish i was, but i can’t just change this fact.If i can sculpt what i want in another app far easier and more fun, then i do not see the point in learning an over complicated fully proffessional tool just to do the same.
Anyway,;blender foundation is aware of the steep learning curve and they will introduce basic versions of blender , for just sculpting /modelling /compositing etc…iow a simpler User interface .
That sounds more like something i would be interested in. For now i’ll just stay with Photoshop 3D, Misfit Model 3D, Paint 3D…wait a sec…seems like MS has added a new app called 3D Builder, i definately need to check that out…
