What are the best Blender alternatives?

    Blender is described as 'is the free and open-source 3D creation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing, video editing, and motion tracking' and is a leading 3D Modeler in the Photos & Graphics category. There are more than 100 alternatives to Blender for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, Online / Web-based and iPad. The best alternative is Autodesk Maya. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try Wings 3D or Natron. Other great apps like Blender are Autodesk 3ds Max (Paid), Cinema 4D (Paid), Bforartists (Free, Open Source) and VRoid Studio (Free).

      HitFilm Pro vs Blender opinions
      This alternative is disputed. HitFilm Pro is still a legitimate alternative to Blender, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Hitfilm is more for film, while Blender is used for modeling.
