i was at an online school thing from summer 2002 to summer 2004, and in the first term, some guy posted some piccies in the school's virtual 'student cafe'.  i asked him what the program was that he'd used, and where i could get it.  guess what his answer was?  :D

It was around 4 years ago when I was ten, I was looking for a good 3d modeling program to teach how to 3d model (before this I had never 3d modeled at all), and found a program named swift 3d from ERain

and after about a week I stopped because I had no idea what I was doing, then searched google for a good software, but soon after that I got more rules for the computer to where I couldnt install programs unless I needed it, and searched for a noninstallation one,(not very easy to find :P ), then found anim8or and saw it was non install so I got it, I wondered why it was purple for a second then got out of my trance and figured out I had no idea what any buttons did :P, started experimenting and after a while started messing around with points faces etc..., and 4 years later here I am :), and I like the result  ;D

after reading my first programing book i was looking for 3d models online and i saw a link to this website it looked interesting so i started exploring the site and looked at some of the tutorials. i have had a little experience with 3ds max(30 day trial version) and this looked way way way easier so i downloaded it, did the chicken walk tutorial, and 1.75 years later im doing a modeling project to help other noobs (check out the "noobs come" article)

Well let me see... Like my sig. says, I found Anim8or while searching for something I could make 3d stuff with about 7 years ago when I was like 13 or so. I have loved Anim8or so much that I actually use it as my main source for 3d modeling and such. I have Blender, Wings3d, and others. I used to have 3dMax, but I kept going back to Anim8or Because of it easy to use interface. Anim8or is very strait forward when you want to do something. And personally I think if you can create some amazing work in Anim8or than I would hold you over someone who is versed in Max. It takes more to make outstanding models and complex scenes in Anim8or because of its lack in mainstream tools. But that's what makes every project you work on so special to you. That's why that final render that takes half the day is worth so much. You have something that you have put real effort into and stuck with it all the way till the end. That's my incite. Any way, have fun ANIM8ing everyone!

That was beautiful (but I'm not going to cry)!
