I tried blender and to be honest, I hate it . I am not tending on stepping back to blender ever again, lol, Max is just great. both for modelling, and rendering. with Vray as extended render nothing can go wrong. I have used max over 2 years now.
I am adding this into a free source engine build by Christian called Pipmak. It will allow me to use my pano's for a hotspot map to walk around freely.
Thank you Chacal.
Now, for some more shots.
Note that it is far from completion. There final renders will be similiar to Exile or Revelation.
I am not showing the console yet
it moves to the left when you turn the handle...
