Got what on eBay? Blender? Wouldn't that mean you had to pay for a program that is completely free from the creators?

Well, it looks like he paid for a "professionally produced" CD with Blender on it. From the ebay listings:

Professional CD-ROM

You will receive a professionally produced and printed CD-ROM in a protective sleeve and mailer. The CD-ROM includes a start menu to assist you with the easy installation of your new software.

The box image used is for illustration purposes only.

I got it off eBay because the people on blender.com wanted your credit card number and stuff. I do not have a credit card.

I don't know where you were, but it certainly doesn't ask you for a credit card number at www.blender.org. I just went there, clicked on downloads (which leads to the page spydurhank originally linked), and clicked the button to download the installer for my OS of preference. In fact, they didn't ask me for anything at all, not even my name.

Glad you head you only paid a paltry sum or it, but it is a shame you had to pay at all for a program that was built from the ground up with the specific purpose of being free to everyone.

Micah,

Did you click on the optional PayPal link on the Blender download page? They accept donations, but they in no way require you to give a credit card number or to have a PayPal account to download the software.

The muzzle flashes on Effectslab Pro and Visionlab Studio are rotatable 3D. So you can choose the angle it's coming from.
