Has anyone had any experience with this software? I'm finishing up at my local Community College this year, and plan to take two classes in the Art department titled "3D Modeling" and "3D Animation". One counts as my Art general education requirement, but I plan on taking the 2nd semester animation course (which is designed to follow it) out of interest. Both are 200 level courses and focus on turning sketches (both others and our own) along with objects into 3D Models - complete with textures and lighting. The animation portion requires us to sketch storyboards/flows, and then produce animations complete with sound using Apple's Final Cut Pro 2. The class sequence culminates with a final project consisting of a fully-rendered 5 minute "film" at a minimum resolution of 480p (our school has a brand new MacPro lab). I spoke with the professor, and he said it could be anything from a Pixar-like short, to a fly through of an animated manufacturing process that is narrated by me. I will be taking a full semester course on AutoCAD for Civil Engineers, but I thought this would be a much more dynamic way for conveying ideas/products/processes to others (ie. to management, customers, or investors).
