(D1) Comparing the differences between Blender, Adobe Flash and Maya.
One of the biggest differences between the Adobe flash software and the Blender software, is that Blender is a 3D animation package. Blender is for building shapes made from polygon meshes, Flash on the other hand is for 2D sketches and drawings where you would use it for simpler animations.
Maya is another type of software that is much more similar to Blender, although Maya is far more complicated compared to the Blender software.
Blender is a software that most experienced animators would use to create 3D shapes and effects. It is a software that lets you change the layout and adapt to the components and tools within the programme to make it easier to use.
This software includes a suite of tools that will enable you to create 3D animations and interactive 3D content. The programme will offer functionality for mainly modelling, animations and rendering. Blender is mainly targeted at the media professions, where it's used in commercials and most other broadcast linear content.
Some of the features included with this programme are:
A full made creation suite.
A small and executable size that's easy for distribution.
A high quality of 3D architectures that will enable to have fast and efficient work-flow creations.
Adobe Flash Software: A type of multimedia software that is used to create mainly just animation features for commercial use, this software can create navigation buttons, web banners, slideshows, introductions, moving text, and various other things that are to do with flash creations.
This software isn't that advanced compared to Blender and Maya, but it can create simple animations easily that you would find on most websites such as, logos, buttons, roll overs, flash banners etc. This software isn't for 3D object creations like Blender and Maya, in fact it's a totally different type of software.
Some of the features included with Flash:
