You know damn right I can. I take it you've never done any (or not much) 3D graphics? This is good. Go learn Blender and don't give up. It's freaking good.

Just get the latest version. The realtime engine was just a joke, it ran with about the same speed as turing and they only made it to get new people interested in the program. Don't forget to read lots of tutorials, and NEVER give up if you are really interested in 3D.

I get an error in a MS dos prompt when I open the program it says:
'import site' failed; use -v for traceback
sys_init: warning - no site dirs added from site module.

Oh geez, I haven't looked at tutorials for a while. Try blender3d.com, I think they have some links. Also, check out Elysiun which has some tutorials as well as a huge forum (check one of the help sections for a thread full of tutorial links).

That's not an error, that's the blender console for feedback and stuff from renders and scripts that you might run. That message is pretty common for the windows version, everybody has it I think, and it's quite normal. Really, nothing to bother about.

also try Rhino , its the turing of 3d graphics , ye rtit can compete with the big boys pretty well , its only drawback are not being able to animate and make bones , i work completly in rhino then export into 3ds max to do the animation , its better to draw in the really easy program and only work in the difficult one when you need to , unles you really want to get deep into 3d animation , but as you said your just begining , but go with what you feel is right ,

Bah, is Rhino easier than blender? as Turing compared to other languages, cause I have no idea how to start blender, and Im too lazy to look at tutorials, I'll prolly look anyway though.

Excuse me as I lapse into leet-speak for a moment:
OMG j00 no0bz0r wtf?
To start blender: double click on the Blender shortcut. Tada. If you're too lazy to read a tutorial just give up on 3D graphics, computing, and maybe even life in general.

Don't Forget LightWave .... its a solid program ... and easy to learn the basics ... but still gives you alot new stuff to learn and create.
