So, I'm a fool.
Why, oh why did I not check out DAZ products sooner?
Why did I go through mucking with so many different other programs that ended in me dropping them, particularly the one I just came over from?
Why? Because I'm a fool. That's why.
I've been going through the tutorials on GeekAtPlay for Hexagon and, I have never had this much *fun* using an interface. It's like you guys at DAZ sat back, looked at each tool and thought "what would be the coolest, most convenient and most useful functionality we could give to this tool to make modeling with it as effortless and enjoyable as possible? And then went ahead and implemented it. If there's a more artist-friendly 3D program out there, I haven't tried it yet.
I know I'm gushing, and am probably preaching to the choir here, but I don't care. lol.
What an amazingly fun program to work with. The last 2 hours just went by in a blink.
I checked out some videos of DAZStudio, which looks great as well, and I checked out Bryce which I knew about but hadn't really kept up to date on all that's been done with it.
Man oh man are good times ahead.
I'm really late to the party, it seems, but hey.. better late than never, right?
