I need to model and animate a 3d cartoon character. The character is pretty simple but it needs to be really good because its for a local TV commercial.
I work a lot with freelancers to help me on these kind of productions.
I was wandering which program to use. I am a 3d studio max guy but I know that c4d and maya are more used for characters.
reason for asking, sometimes I need to involve extra freelancers and I need to use a program that is used by many animators, in other words, it will be easier to find animators. With 3d Max I have found that there are not a lot of freelance character animators out there.
So keeping this in mind and that the budget is not super, which program would be best to start using.
