Hey Guys, I'm new to 3d modeling, I have been using Poser 9 on a mac for about 5 months, I love the work I've seen here, being a mac user I can't use SFM, I was wondering if you recommend I try GMOD. Thanks

Depends how good you are on Poser. But the run down is! Gmod is really a sandbox game with a physical engine that happen to have decent posing capabilities for those who know how to utilize them. Try Gmod if you will for the insane free amount of content is has. But for quality, Poser is your choice. It is a professional 3D platform, Gmod is not. It takes work and experience to get Gmod poses to look good. But there is hardly anything you can't do in Gmod. Pose, build cars, houses, a city, a plane and fly it. Or set of a nuclear bomb or unleash tornadoes on your hard work. That is just the tip of the iceberg.

thanks for the advice rastifan, I'm ok with poser, like I said just learning, the animations I see here are just amazing to me. I'm on deviantart if you want to take a look, same name. Thanks again

The animations are made in Source Filmmaker. It basically uses the same engine as Gmod, but are more specialized towards animation.

SFM looks pretty cool, thinking of getting a windows computer ( after I find a job !) just to try it !

I know of several Mac users who either run a Virtual Box or just partitioned a portion of their hard drive for Windows. Might want to look into it if youre interested in SFM, I assure you it's worth it.

Thanks AbsoluteZero, Yes I forgot my Imac has bootcamp, I can partition & start up in windows, so I just have to get a windows disc( presently unemployed) so I can download SFM, thanks again.
