I was about ot spend a nice chunk of change on Cinema4D software in order to creae enviornments for my projects...until I realized I still had a free software called Blender.

Has anyone in this community ever used or heard of Blender? If so, has it worked well with VisionLab Studio?

Please be patient with me ladies and gentlemen...I'm still a virgin to this realm. And my thanks to the guys who answered my earlier question.

I use Blender, and once animated, your video works well with VisionLab.

But then again I never used blender to create enviroments. I only did characters that I composited on my video using Chroma Key, since my character was animated on a blue background.

Blender works fine with VisionLab Studio. It can import and export video files, which is all a program needs to be able to do to be compatible with ours.

That isn't what he was asking for.

I've seen some amazing things produced with blender, including a city being flooded. And it works very well with Vlab. Although I hear it is one of the hardest programs to use or learn to use, mostly down to a complex interface.

What you need to do is find some good tutorials on the web.

I used this one, and I liked it (it's a text tutorial): http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Blender_3D:_Noob_to_Pro
