Which Blender forum is the most active? I ask because I have NO idea and would like to know. We may end up hiring a number of CG animators, and while we currently use Lightwave I would like to (possibly) move towards Blender. Which forum - in your opinion - has the widest variety of skilled artists?


Thanks in advance!

thats about as ponited and opinion based as what program is the best


every person has their own specialty and methods and versions and they tend to stay close to similar minds


if you are looking for examples of what blender artists can do check blendswap or the user submissions on cgcookie


im pretty sure that there are some good modelers here that run blender only but most of the real hardcore users work elsewhere and stay to themselves


you could youtube search blender animations  ive found a few good ones


i dont do animations because i only work with hard body meshes


there are those here that are way better at animating in blender than i am so lets see where the dice land

Third that vote. It's probably the busiest forum for Blender, certainly. The threads on Cycles are simply mind-boggling.

This is great!


Thank you ALL for your input - it is MUCH appreciated.


I don't know what route we'll eventually be taking - going with Lightwave and/or Blender - but at least I have an excellent starting point.


Again, thank you!
