I got my start in CG with Autodesk Animator. Glad to see it still has a following.

I've started in the industry by using ZX Spectrum for first graphics and animations, then moved on to Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC and then Amiga 500.
Deluxe Paint was great because it had NON LINEAR thinking.
You were able to do more functions at the same time!
Not even the photoshop learned that leason, and it still doesn't do that today.

Hewre is a demo reel of

Autodesk Animator


And here is abit more on Dan Silva on what he did for Autodesk...

The history of 3D Studioís development began several years before its official launch in October 1990. Its early origins can be traced to Solid States, a 3D wireframe renderer that ran on the Atari 800 and was published by ANALOG Computing magazine, and CAD-3D, the next incarnation of the software, which was published by Antic Software. Anticís software arm was being managed by Gary Yost, and thus started the collaboration with Tom Hudson in 3D graphics software development. Gary, Tom and Jack Powell were the three initial members of the Yost Group, and Dan Silva (who created Deluxe Paint for the Amiga) joined them later. The four of them worked on the development of 3DS release 1.

This part of history is told in great detail and with excellent documentation by Martin Doudoroff, an early user of CAD-3D who collaborated with the Yost Group on many projects. We strongly encourage you to read it.
