@00:20Uh. I've been modeling for a few years now, but I only got RealFlow a few months ago. Setting up the animation took me maybe an hour or two. The rest was all processor work, and THAT'S what took the longest.

This is the animation I've been waiting on for so long. It's uber simple, really, and it wouldn't have taken so long if I hadn't added a few bells and whistles. It has 3 light sources, an HDRI image for the sky, and the water itself has a transparency with refraction and reflection.

All in all, not a BAD animation, really, but it could have been so much more.

@00:20I basically taught myself with C4D. I just downloaded the demo and starting messing around with it. I've never used Maya, but I don't think they make a Mac compatible version anyway. From what I know of that particular debate, it boils down to what you're more comfortable with and what works best for you. And the best way to find that out to try each.

You can find a C4D Demo here: [link]
It'll run full featured indefinitely, but you cannot save any projects or save any images. I'm sure if you look, Maya will have a demo version available as well. You may also consider Blender, 3D Studio Max, or some other modeling program. I'm sure they all work just fine, I'm just more familiar with C4D.

And if you have any questions, don't hesitate to note me. :)

@00:20Aww, you're too kind. :aww:

I'm sure if you pick up a free modeling program like Blender you would catch on quite quickly! You should check it out sometime. :wave:

@00:20I tried....T_T I can't figure out 3D....I wish I could....

@00:20Certainly. There's usually lots of places you can find tutorials for the major 3D programs.

I'm only really familiar with Cinema4D, and it's not free. If you want to try Blender, you can find it here: [link]

If you want to try C4D out, there's a demo version here: [link]
You'll have to fill out a form for it, but the demo version is fully functional EXCEPT you can't actually SAVE anything.

Once you have a program you like, you can find tutorials on one of these sites:

Or basically any google search will get you what you want.

And, of course, I can always help you out if you like. :D Feel free to note me or IM me using one of the screennames on my main page.
