    Reply to How can I make J in Futura more intelligible like j?
    B
    If you want it to look more like a regular j, just place a curve at the end like a regular j has. Why are you stuck on Futura, though? If Futura isn't working, why are you trying to force it to work....

    I am using Futura for my logo (jbk), and the problem is that j appears like i.

  • Good 3D software for Mac users

    Hi 3D experts

    I've heard that 3D software only work on Microsoft platforms. What about Mac??? Any suggestions and feedback would be appreciated...

    Thanks

    Wow...that is so not true!!!!

    But, it does depend on what you want to do.

    I have Maya and various other programs. Of course, there is always Blender, which will cover you for most anything.

    It really depends on what you want to do.

      It used to be true, and in some instances still it.

      The thing with 3d is that a lot of the plugins are independantly created by individuals or small businesses that just don't have the financial bank to develop for two platforms.

      Things have changed, especially in the last 5 years. Many of the mainstream 3d applications are now completely compatible with MAC.

      3D encompasses a wide range of tools and programs. Which one to use, will be entirely based on what you want to do with it? Do you want to buy models to pose, light and render? Do you want to model from scratch? Do you want to create different characters? Do you want to do sweeping landscapes? Do you want to do everything?

      also adding in what type of budget do you have. 3d programs can be free to 10s of thousands of dollars.

        Hi Darkwolf29a and Drazan

        Wow. Thank you so much for your feedback. I am currently finishing my Dip. Graphic Design and know very little about 3d. This helps alot and will give me something to start with.

        Thanks again.

              I also just posted a "getting started" thread.

              Click here and it is also stickied at the top of the 3D software forum.
