Hi everyone,

I'm going to guess most people would recommend Blender, however I can't really stand it's user interface. I don't need a million short-cuts that make very little sense or an interface that prefers to hide the useful stuff by default hahah, no offense.

Anyway, I'm sure some people know what I mean. Are there any worthwhile alternatives that come to mind??

I've been using Fragmotion for years, you may want to check it out.

Thanks! I have heard of that before years ago, but never actually tried it (used to use 3D GameStudio and it's included vertex animation editor). I will look into it.

It hasn't been updated in a while, but I still use Milkshape 3D to create and animate my 3D models. http://www.milkshape3d.com/ I am a fellow hater of Blender's interface. I have used Fragmotion too, but I will take MS3D any day.



So many games to code.....so little time.

Cool, I'll look into Milkshape too then. I did like Fragmotion though. Had some animations going in literally no time actually, without the visual distraction of a million features cluttering the screen. Just as a side note, it's also nice to know more people feel this way about Blender, which is otherwise an extremely capable software without question.

Too bad u cannot get into blender. Actually i tried blender severals time and always put it down. Since i coming from 3dsmax(what i like the most is Biped) it super ultra hard to learn blender. I also admit cant learn maya.

But one day i tried to mess up with the blender cube using basic modelling like extrude,scale,loop cut and mirror. Suddenly i get the feel for it. But yeah, i still wish 3dsmax dont go for subcsription.

Now im with blender and still wish there are better animation program i can use.
