Rendering Programs??

What is a FREE Rendering Program I can use?

Would I have to get 3DSM...or some expensive program like that?

Milkshape 3D
poly modelling tools = yes (very simple)
box modelling tools = yes (very simple)
particle systems = no
rendering system = sort if
biped animation = no
bone animation = yes, but a little clumsy in ms3d
IK chain animation = if only
good import/export compatibility = best for games
Extras:
Free for 30 days
Easy to use
available at http://www.milkshape3d.com
Sort Of? WTF!?

the "sort of" is there because you CAN take pics of your model, jst those are screenshots and not renders. i'm pretty sure there arnt any free renderers for ms3d, the only ones i know of are 3dsm plugins

decompile it, import the smd into milkshape then export that as a 3ds, then import that into 3dsm, or dl the smd importer plugin for 3dsm

well someone said mdl, so i assumed you had a complete model, in that case just export it to 3ds format and imprt it into max then render it there, 3dsm's renderer is really good

I use bryce[expensive] to render all my model pics, it's more work to export/import them, but one you have the right plugins you can get some awsome results. Most ppl just take screenshots from their models and edit them in photoshop so they look better...

OK...I still need to do the Head/Torso....

Ok this thread is no longer about "Rendering program?", and since the thread originator has used that information to now show a model WIP, no need to close this.

Thread renamed to "mix between Big O & Betterman", post back/PM if you want another title for your thread, and a mod will be glad to do it.

And also, '[DBZ]SSJ Vegeta': please refrain from double posting again and instead use the EDIT button to add new content to your previous post.
