I originally got lured into the wonderful world of Softimage with the 4.2 Foundation version which was extremely affordable at the time, but even when it became more expensive, I always figured that, while I had the money I might as well go for the best possible software I could afford. Hobbyism obviously doesn't necessarily mean having to settle for second-best. It often does, but it doesn't have to per se (cash permitting).kiwimation wrote:Out of intrest if this is a hobby for you, what was your reason for looking at Maya or even Soft. They are pretty expensive apps at the end of the day. I had always thought if i ever turned this back into just a hobby i would go back to lightwave and or blender.
