3D Drawing && Design (which program to use)?

Posted: December 17, 2011
Thanks for checking out my question

I am programming games and my game engine supports these 3d designing programs

Maya .mb & .ma1
3D Studio Max .max1
Cheetah 3D .jas1
Cinema 4D .c4d1 2
Blender .blend1
XSI 5.x1

any recommendations based on the fact I am new to computer 3d design and want something easy to use (draw 3d creations) and get up and drawing fast without spending hours trying to figure the program out?

Appreciate your help thanks

None of these is super easy. I heard that C4D is very intuitive so maybe try with that. Personally I feel most comfortable with max.

Yes MAX is really a good one. It has good features

MAX is pretty much industry standard for games. Maya is great, but it is mostly used for high poly modeling for film.
