    Right...but we can only get the license for that if the progress bar is at 100%, tho, that's the catch, so we'd better make sure that we get this right. Went for the $40 Pro Version of it, truth be told. That might be worth the while.

    Yeah. I got it too. Hopefully the goal is met. And as they say...

    Whether you get the software for this amazing price is up to you, and how well you get the word out.
    Not sure when the timeline ends, but it's clever way they are promoting their stuff.

    Yep, another one here that went for the $40 one. Seems like nothing to lose.

    Over halfway there. I hope this pans out!

    If we do hit that mark, then maybe Buzz might stick together a few VTMs on Messiah and see if that would fit into the class somehow.

    Question

    I am sorry to post this twice but I didn't get an answer in the other thread, and I just feel I might have a better chance of getting one here.

    So would MessiahStudio also work for Blender? You can't model in MessiahStudio right? You just have to model in a different software, and then bring it into this one to rig and animate? Is this like Motion Builder? So in this program it is more dedicated to making animation easier then things like Maya are? Like if I had Maya, I would want this because it would speed up my work flow? Would that be the only benefit, or can it do things that Maya can't do as well?

    I don't have Maya now, but maybe someday. But If this is great for Blender, then maybe it is worth me getting. I don't have any 3D software at the moment, so if it didn't work for Blender for some reason, buying this would just give me something I couldn't even use, so that is an important question for me to get answered.

    Seems to work fine with blender: http://setuptab.com/index.php?topic=2130.0. Can't really answer your other questions as I've never used it before but I believe its primary purpose is to aid you in the animation process. So in your case you would import a model that you created in Blender into Messiah Studio and then rig and animate it there.

    I'm assuming that MessiahStudio will be compatible with MilkShape 3D as well? I'm still waiting on my license from Chumbalum Soft in order to use that one, but I'm pretty sure that I could that I might not have any trouble between the two apps. Use MilkShape for modeling, and MessiahStudio for enhancements and full-blown rigging and animation. I'm betting that Messiah has better rigging and animation than MilkShape itself would.

    I know that you believe you understand what you think I wrote, but I'm not sure you realize that what you read is not what I meant.
