IMHO Blender is the least user-friendly software I have used
Is it possible to do photorealistic animations in Blender? Or is it reserved for more "cartoon" graphics?
Also, is it possible to scan a physical model into a computer program?
in my opinion, blender sucks. its is a very good rendering tool but i cant seam to get the hang of modeling or animating in it
Blender does not have the functionality to automatically model objects
but you should be able to use whatever technique you used in Anim8or with blender.
