Sculptris – Do advanced digital sculpting like playing with mud

Pixologic claims to be the maker of Sculptris, but actually it had no choice but acquired it in 2010 due to the huge threats from Sculptris, and applied Sculptris’ advantages to ZBrush, so as to maintain the market and position of ZBrush. Otherwise, if Sculptris’ inventor Tomas Pettersson had chosen to stick to go his own way (although that would have been tough) rather than join into the Pixologic team, then this revolutionary software could have quickly eliminated ZBrush. In other words, it was his own shortcomings that killed his invention, not the competition from Pixologic.

Irrlicht Engine – A free, open-source and lighting fast realtime 3D engine

To learn 3D game development with limited pockets, I guess you’ve tried many classic, free, open-source game development engines like TV3D (Truevision3D), OGRE and Irrlicht Engine. By contrast, the pros of TV3D are easy to learn and get started with; its cons are that it was built based on the ActiveX control and requires the RunTime DLL to be registered before running; OGRE is better than Irrlicht in that it has a capable and vigorous engine framework, and supports for extending new functionality in the form of plug-ins (this is better than Irrlicht); but its downside is that it’s not easy to get started with.
