Comment by Aaron
about Autodesk 3ds Max Jun 2011

Its a good program, but I found it to be slow and lacking in features. You have to pay a lot of money just for the program, but it is like a skeleton program. You would then have to spend more money just to get the plugins to do what you want to do. Thats why when I found Blender I was extremely pleased because, Blender can do more than this program can be default. At least in my opinion.
