I recently started learning UE4, I am a complete beginner. I’ve had alot of fun exploring the starter content and using the landscape tools etc. However, recently I had some ideas to build a wood cabin inside of UE4, and after some hours fiddling around I found that UE4 is not really meant as a 3D modelling software. I have some basic forms of the cabin, but my workflow is pretty horrible and it takes alot of time. Some people told me to use a 3D modelling program to make my models, and to import them into UE4, and this seem like a good step. Problem is, there’s alot of software out there and I have been googling the differences, but can’t really decide on what I should pick up. I’m thinking of picking up Blender but I really want your guys’ opinion on this.
What do you guys use for your models? If you were to build a house, what program would you use? Is it worth picking up Maya? (I will soon be a student, then I could get the 3 years free) Or should I just stick to something like Blender?
