      I remember when the first full length movies completely rendered in CG stations hit the theaters - it amazed me to know that, somehow, there were both people and computers out there capable of producing such images unlike anything produced by traditional older means. As time went by, computers getting increasingly cheaper and better, small studios appeared everywhere offering services previously available only to high-budget projects. Finally, in the present day, most of us have one or more personal computers with the resources necessary to process almost anything we wish to create - if the machine is given the required amount of time, of course. Being so, monetary and technological issues put aside, the only problem that might keep one

      apart from realizing idealized creative ideas is the learning curve inevitable to those who lack experience with whatever the new endeavor is.

      In a matter of fact, when it comes to 3D modelers, the aspirating computer artist must find his or her way through some of the trickiest user interfaces. Specially in the case of high-end professional pieces of software such as the commercial Autodesk Maya or the open-source Blender, the sensation of staring at the cockpit panel of an alien spaceship may last longer than the perseverance of some. Taking into consideration the depicted scenario, astonishing ease of use allied to surprisingly high potential results make Silo 2 by Nevercenter one of the most interesting products available for fluid multimedia ...


      • and graphics production.

        Silo 2 offers all the modeling and deformation tools one would expect from a high quality program for similar purposes. However, every single function is accessible from a simple, minimalistic menu. It is also worth mentioning the wonderful selection assistance system - which helps a lot when it comes to selecting points or polygon faces amidst all the others in very detailed objects.

        The only downside here is the absence of a renderer bundled along. However, there are great free options from the open source community which will work perfectly and, thus, solve the issue. And since, given this characteristic, Silo 2 is not going to be the only piece of 3D edition software you are going to use,

        nothing more adequate than providing the possibility of importing and exporting objects in all major file formats used in the industry. By doing so, Nevercenter managed to decrease dramatically the time spent and frustration risk inherent to transferring 3D objects from one software suite to another.

        Nevercenter Silo 2 can be freely tested by downloading a trial version from the site of the developer. There are versions for Windows and MacOS, while a Linux version is being worked on. If you decide to buy the fully functional version, the process is also done through the internet by paying with a credit card and receiving an activation key. With absolute frankness, I assure this is the most rewarding 3D modeler I have ever worked with.
