    want to convert your image to ILDA?

    want to convert your image to ILDA?

    very cheap tools for creating laser 3d animations

    If there are any questions you can ask here. The manual is a little old. Thinking of writing my own. If you're new to Blender, blender.org and Blender Cookie | Great Blender tutorials and training are great sites for tutorials.
