Sorry Mistery, Google SketchUp is proving to be too much for my computer to handle. It stops responding. Do you know a program that`ll b easier for me handle. Pentium III, 192 RAM, 600 MHz? :shock:

Well, Animator is in my opinion pretty difficult to use :?
Gonna look out for other software that is easy to handle.

@ Doggy, thanks for the help, it`s working ok...only i should probably view a few tutorials -.-'
@ Mistery, If you can find something easier i`ll really appreciate it, working with animator will take ages and lots of try/erase and with school it`ll get on my nerves too much -.-'
If you two can find anything else...? Thank you very much for wasting time on me. :oops: I found a program called "blender". what do you think of it?download for me is really slow, so i should know if it`s gonna be worth it... thanks again guys! *hugz*

We 're getting a little off-topic here... should we move the posts?
Anyway... I know Anom8or is way too difficult, but it's running in low-end systems. If you found it too difficult, I would suggest you didn't use blender...

I tried google sketchup two times. Ended up uninstalling it each time. I dont know if its because I am on vista or what, but every time I would use it for the 2nd or 3rd time, the boxes would all be transparent and you could see all of the lines.

I gave up on it.

Yes, you're right, this thread is about the contest.
Please post further questions about software to create frames/artwork in the following section of this forums:
http://www.adventuremaker.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=8

Thanks :)


EDIT
Okay, I've moved out these post to a separate topic.

I think that most 3D software have higher requirements nowadays than what your computer has Nef :?
Additionally, most 3D software is pretty difficult to use - that means that you need weeks and months to learn to work with them.

I have found Sweet Home 3D http://sweethome3d.sourceforge.net/index.html
but it has also the following requirements:
Your computer should have at least a processor running at 400 MHz, 256 MB and a graphic card with its driver updated

However, there are also alternatives to 3D, you don't have to use 3D artwork for the contest. You can draw (or ask a fried with talent to draw for you), use photos or images that are not copyrighted (!).
