I wanna produce some nice photorealistic images using global illumination and all that nice stuff, but I'm also looking for a really easy to use 3D rendering and modeling application. I tried Maya, but found it really extensive (powerful, no doubt), but I was put off by the old-looking interface. I downloaded the trial version of Luxology Modo and really love the interface polish and speed and ease of use. This may be my 3D app of choice but I'm not sure if it's becoming an industry standard. I'm saying this because I was big on Imagine 3D and TruSpace but those programs kind of died away. I want a program with legs.
