    As far as I know ActorX is used to export to .ase. There are export scripts for Blender, too.

    Hmm.. But When you export, As I know the ActorX plugin only supports Max, Maya and XSI.

    Well it seems you can still use gmax but you have to bring them into 3ds max to get the right export file.I dont have the link on me its on my usb card.But you use a script and a toolset that allows you to export your files into 3ds max and then your all good.

    modo is nice modeling tool and not expensive ( less than may) It contains sculpting and texturing features. Also you can bake anykind of light and ambient occulsion on your character. It's only for modeling though. But a good modeling tool

    http://www.luxology.com/store/video/...02_Sample.html

    those two video are a good example of what modo can do.

    It's not for commercial use from what I can tell. They only talk about the possibility of upgrading to commercial license from the educational version or to use the educational versions in commercial companies for educational learning.

    Really ?! For Commercial use ? I thought it was just for personal use...

    If that´s right I might look into this as this would make everything much easier for me if i had such a great variety of proffesional tools.

    I couldn't see any option to save in the pixelogic version. I think it's just to test, they will probably implement its features in a future zbrush

    The way Autodesk makes the licenses work it's very hard to sell a license for 3ds Max to someone else--if you see anyone selling 3ds Max for anything below a few thousand dollars--it's a scam. No one would sell a $3,500 program for much cheaper. But again, the way to transfer licenses is not easy.

    Gmax is based off a very old version of 3ds Max, it's pretty much useless to use just because it's so old. Plus I don't think there's any rendering capability.

    You can also download most Autodesk programs (including 3ds Max, Maya, Softimage, and Mudbox) for free if you are a student--go to students.autodesk.com and register, and they've got free 13-month educational licenses that you can download. No need to pay $350 for the same software. And it's most likely going to continue with new releases so you could essentially use 3ds Max as long you are a student since the next version will come out before 13 months is over.

    There Blender which is free but does not support file types very well. You can download XSI Mod Tool from the Autodesk site for free (non-commercial use) and it has actorx support. If you are a student, you can buy autodesk edu suite for $350 in student sites which contains 3ds max, maya, motionbuilder, mudbox, and XSI ModTool. ALL full edition and commercial use, i say that worth the price. (They sell 2010 and 2011).

    I know, but it's still free, it's been renamed to Alpha 5 again, but it's free

    /edit: ZBrush also hired the creator of Sculptris...
