Anyone use this?

If so, can you tell us about it?

Wings3d was my first tentative steps into cgi ... even did one of the animations, a bird walking simple stuff. but I remember liking it at the time.

I would be interested in hearing how users find it now . it must have come along way in the 8 or so years since I used it.

i used it when I first started out... It's based on Nendo if I remember correctly. Nice easy interface... Great for beginners. Only real drawback was the poly limit...

LW7 / LW8 I think were the ones around at the time.......

I think If i remember rightly I imported Dennis Bailey original Enterprise
and even fabio´s classic enterprise at the time.

anyway I know I was able to import something

Yeah, it's a good little sub-d modler, but I had to move to max so I could really start greebleing stuff a bit more easily... but then again Ozy uses Wings and he is a greeble eater too... so...
