I'm a web designer looking to expand his repertoire. I'm interested in learning a powerful 3d rendering program. I currently use several adobe products and am ready to take on a new program. I just installed Blender. should I go on and learn tons of skills in this program or is there a better program out there? (I don't want to spend months and months on a program only to find that it is obsolete, incompatible, or unpopular among graphic gurus) I looked at Anim8er and it looks a little too basic. I want to be capable of making advanced graphics. somebody plz point me in the right direction. Any suggestions or info would be appreciated. thx.
