    I'm looking for a UB 3D animation software that I can integrate into Flash when I'm finished.

    Anyone have a suggestion?

    Thanks

    Props to Swift 3d

    interface, last I checked, was an eyesore, but it worked magically.

    3D flash looks awesome.

    you can get the same "loook" with alot of 3D programs out there.

    cinema4d comes to mind

    but I dont think they output to .swf

    I would NOT recommend Amorphium -- EI has really stopped supporting it. I seem to recall Tiger broke it -- It won't run properly on newer Macs (something in the way Tiger renders the interface didn't agree with Amorphium, and EI still hasn't fixed it.)

    I moved to Cinema 4D after giving up on Amorphium, and I have found it to be an excellent program overall. It's not the least expensive 3D program out there (I want to say around $695) but it's very user-friendly and can put together some amazing graphics. Plus, it can export to Flash.

    Hope this helps! :)

    Cinema 4d can export to flash?

    Can it export vector flash objects for manipulation IN flash, or only its own .swf movie files that you can then import into Flash?

    Maya has a .swf vector renderer and it's easy to work with. Few things in Maya are easy but this is not too bad.

    Thanks folks, all great suggestions. There's a conference for Cinema 4 coming up at my local college so I signed up to attend it. But gee they're all very expensive software.
