    Anyone know of a good way to easily make a scale stage scenery model or an image (it can look computer generated, I dont' care much about colors or anything, just the layout of the props and stuff)? Yeah...short question for once....:)



    and free is nice too...

    if your suggesting photoshop then you can use a program orginally designed for linux and then made for windows that is suppose to do everything the same as photoshop. It is called gimp. You can get it at http://www.gimp.org

    For doing scale renderings I'd recommend any of the popular CAD programs (AutoCAD or Vectorworks, basically). Though they are not LEGALLY available for free, and cost a great deal to purchse. You can do any of the paint/drawinf functions you can in other programs and have it come out exactly to scale. There are multiple posts around CB about them.[/i]

    Might want to try Sketchup. you can download a trial for 30 days and then just redownload the trial again and again the last time i check. You can draw the shapes and then just drag them to the height you want. You can then change the viewing point to anywhere.
