Hi,

What 3d raytrace software is used for generating stock images?  ???
I want to give it a try (used autocad/inventor at work), but don't want to start with buying a $$$ 3d software package  :(. And perhaps something more image related (iso technical)
Is there something free or cheap around that generates good enough quality for the stock sites?


Thanks,
Bjorn

The tulips looks a bit plastic still, but sold 100x...

I've never heard of that one. Can it be used in conjunction with any 3d package? Yafray is pretty good all the way around though.
