A cursory glance at other free 3D Modellers
While looking for an alternative to Blender I checked out these alternatives...
|Art Of Illusion 3D||Neither the 2.5.1 nor the the 2.6.1 installer .exe worked on Windows.||FAIL|
|GroIMP-0.9.7||Java jar without accompanying .BAT, didn't look so promising/fitting in the first place.||FAIL|
|OpenFX 2.0||A nice looking editor, but I couldn't find a useful object list view.||FAIL|
|Moonlight-0.2.0||Java yet again. No .BAT file to start it. Screenshots didn't look too bad though.||FAIL|
|Ayam 1.13||Needs an obsolete render engine. Looked extremely poor.||FAIL|
|AvoCADo-08.03||Java :( but comes with a .BAT file! Which doesn't work :(||FAIL|
|K-3D 0.7.9||It looked very promising for exactly 45seconds and then crashed when I tried to move a sphere.||FAIL|
The last try will be trueSpace from Caligari a hefty -used to be commercial- package and then it's back to Blender (yuck).
