Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Modeling software?

I want to ask what modeling software is good for starters and can be imported to UE4.

For an example, let's say if I want to make a detailed robot design. I've been surfing around the internet and saw good modeling programs like Blender, Maya and ZBrush. But since I'm still new, and have a low budget, I want a program which is free, or at least quite cheap (but I prefer not to spend any money if possible tho). Any suggestions?

Just for info, 3DSMax and Maya (and all the autodesk products) have free 3 years licenses for students and academics... You can find them here http://www.autodesk.com/education/free-software/all

Hi Shadow Phantom,

This can be a very subjective question in some instances as everyone will probably have their own preference.

Personally, I'm a fan of 3Ds Max since that is the software I really started using first.

If you're just looking for something low cost or free then Blender is probably you're best bet. There can be a steep learning curve since the UI doesn't feel very intuitive (at least to me it does not), but that can be overcome with practice and use. One of the guys on our support staff started using Blender almost a little over a year ago and has come quite far with it in that time.

If you're unsure still, most if not all of these programs do offer a free trial that may help you make an informed decision as well. :)
