I render models in Truespace4, but some people say that Truespace is poor... I disagree, but what do you guys think or use?

I use Blender. It's only disadvantage is that it can't really load textured models. Or it can, but it's hard to make them and hard to load them.

I tried using trueSpace 4.2 but I just can't figure out the interface.

I use trueSpace 4.3 (I have no complaints). It's interface isn't that hard to learn either. I really don't know what everyone is complaining about.
Ingen orsak.

 
It's because alot of people cant pick up on the interface that easily or cant be botherd to learn so they blame the program.

The TS interface really isn't difficult. Only TS1's texturing abilities are very limited, and raytracing often leads to some very unpleasant effects.

you just gotta learn to work around the problem. 6 months of practice also helps.

I use TS too, but I have problems with it - it runs amazingly chunkily. Any ship above the size of a Loki makes the handling... how to say? Badly animated? Well, the frame rate is so slow, that by the time it moves, it has been maneuvred half way across the screen. Sucky, huh?

The interface IS hard to learn, especially when you're used to all the keyboard commands of Blender. The scaling and rotation are completely different, too.

3dS 3.0 and I love it.

Setekh that only happens to me if I try to use TS3, which I had but whenever I installed it it made my mouse go all screwy. so I'm stuck with TS1.

Wow, people are still using Truspace 1?  And I thought my Truspace 2 was old.

For those who don't understand the controls they may be interested to know that it's quite like AutoCAD's control system - which could be useful if you intend to work in the CAD industry.

I have a CAD program. The DXFs it pumps out can't be read by trueSpace

I don't think the rendering function in TS is poor. But I don't think it's as good as other 3d rendering (3DS Max, Lightwave) when you have a really complex scene. But people also say that 3DS Max rendering function doesn't look realistic enought (Probably when you have a scene with trees, water and stuff).

You have to convert the Pof file to Cob, using Pof2Cob.
