Hi folks, just picked up 3DWorld Magazine Issue 135 (November 2010).  Full version of Bryce 6.3, no limitations is contained on the DVD.  Downloaded it and it works just fine.  For the price of the magazine $15.99 U.S. well worth it for folks wanting to try a new 3D software product.  Jan

Hi Karl, here are the Mac requirements:

Mac OSX 10.3.9 or higher or

Intel, Power PC, 700MHZ CPU (I GHZ preferred).  512 K of Ram (1GB preferred.

Let me run a check on Plants, trees, etc. Jan

Yep, it has a fair amount of trees and plants.

Since you have a PLE, its probably worth your while to get it.  Jan

I can't keep up with that magazine! Every month they give away something cool. I just picked up Carrara7 pro from them and still haven't gotten real good at it. Is Bryce harder to learn than Carrara?

Hi Justin, the answer is-----no and it tain't any easier either.  Jan 

Since I'm somewhat familiar with Carrara, I can help there.

Hi JKelly

In my honest opinion and Bambam131(the Bryce master) agree's with me Bryce in my view is the easiest 3d program to use however is has quite a steep learning curve and making really complex models takes a hell of a long time just to save. You would proberly want to try it and make a few simple models first.

Hope this helps

Karl

Okay Justin, I guess I can answer your question now.  Carrara doesn't have a steep learning curve and making models with curves like pipes that bend horizontally and vertically is a snap (used for example for conduit that goes along ceiling around corners and down to a junction box).  Making say sail boats with flowing sails only takes about a minute all using the vertex room.

It also has a spline room where you can take cylinders and carve them like on a lathe for fancy table legs, jet engines or fuselages of space ships.

It's boolean operations is done in a different operation where after the model is cut, you don't see what cut it.

Additionally, Carrara has a fast rendering time.

If you want to say make a pipe that bends every which way. I can get you going in about an hour.

After you do it a few times, you will be able to whip one out in about two minutes or less.  Jan
