I just found this site and and I really like the stuff you guys are doing. Really impressive that I thought I might ask a question too :)
I plan to write a fully blown 3d application that is gonna be in the league of Maya, Softimage XSI, 3ds Max, LightWave, etc. I have some friends as part of the group. C# is our target language.
We are all professional 3d artists working in the film industry and some of us are more in the programming/art area.
Anyway the problem is we don't know which 3d framework to use as the base.
Right now these are on our list (some might be irrelevant due to our misinformation):
Please add others that we could use if we have missed them?
We included WPF because some people suggested that it has "serious" 3d capabilities, I doubt it, but haven't tried.
So if you guys can help us find the right framework to use, we would be most that grateful.
