Hi everyone. I'm looking to get more into 3D work (3D illustration, modelling for games etc), and frankly the choices out there are quite staggering. I'm also quite shocked to learn that some major packages aren't available for Mac, which is what I work on. I learned basic 3D at uni with Maxon Cinema 4D, and I understand it's known to be the easiest to learn with, if comparatively limited. Can anyone offer any info or advice as far as recommending the most suitable 3D package for me to really sink my teeth into? I'm after an excellent all-round package really, not something that only does one task. I've heard plenty of the names (Maya, 3DS Max, Lightwave, Strata...) before but any insight into which ones are most widely valued in the creative industries would be greatly appreciated - I'd hate to waste my time becoming skilled in a 3D package few companies use!
