Autodesk Maya Alternative: Blender

Blender is a software 3D animation program. It can be used for modeling, texturing, rigging, skinning, animating, rendering, UV unwrapping, particle and other simulating, non-linear editing, compositing, and creating interactive 3D applications. Blender has a robust feature set similar in scope and depth to other high-end 3D software such as 3ds Max and Maya. These features include advanced simulation tools such as rigid body, fluid, and softbody dynamics, modifier based modeling tools, powerful character animation tools, a node based material and compositing system and Python for embedded scripting.
