What are the free/cheap good 3D modelling and animation applications for the Mac? I used 3D Studio max almost 10 years ago in university, and havent done any 3D animation stuff since, and was looking to get back into it.
I'd prefer somethign with a UI similar to 3DSM, but am willing to learn something new.
I checked on getting 3D Studio Max but the price is prohibitive. This is just for a personal hobby.
