I was wondering how Sketchup compares to Blender and Daz 3D and professional but costly packages such as Poser and Z Brush(if at all). I want to start 3D modelling and Rendering and have a few ideas, but I need something I can get to grips with quickly but has lots of functionality. Does anyone know the pros and cons of these programs? Also DAZ 3D seems to have ready made 3D renders you can add to your own image like uniforms, ready made male and female models, cityscapes, the lot. Doesn't that qualify as cheating a bit?
I'm really confused as I've never ventured into 3D modelling before and really want to get to grips with it as it looks like so much fun!
Could anyone who is patient enough to have me going "huh" at them for a while give me a hand?!
I sort of feel like this---->
If you can help I shall be incredibly grateful
