Need to select a 3-d Building Modeling Software for Productions

Hi all,

This is probably an easy question, but we're looking to add 3-d building re-creations to our productions, and were trying to determine what software is the best.

This clip from the History Channel best shows what we'd like to do.. it's about halfway through the webclip (it's the shot that is all blue, and the "camera" goes into the building).

As always, thanks in advance for your help!

Did I post in the wrong forum?

You might get a better response if you posted in one or more of the 3d software sections (autodesk 3ds perhaps).

3D modelling isn't my area, so I have no opinion about software. My experience is that it's a rather specialized field and the best way to go would probably be to find the right person for the job and use whatever software they happen to prefer.

Andrew,

Thanks for the honest answer. The situation is that we would be taking on this project ourselves. We have a relatively small staff running CS5.5 Master Suite. We produce training videos for law enforcement and would like to re-create buildings to use for scenarios to map where different team members are..

I thought there would be a "Post Production" forum here, but I didn't see one. So far, it looks like 3ds Max, but I was more interested if there was an industry standard of sorts, or one that was commonly used by post-production facilities for stations like the history channel.

Should I re-post, or can this get moved to another forum?

I don't know what the deal is with moving stuff around, I'd just repost in the 3ds max area, and possibly in Maya and/or Blender as well
