After cribbing about Blenders complexity for a while, I tried to search for simpler alternatives. I came across a nice small Java program called ‘Art of Illusion‘. It is a surprisingly small program (few MB download) and requires JVM to be installed to work. But I am impressed with its features, clarity and ease of use. Great software for an absolute beginner like me.
