Another option to get great 3D scenes to laser is Swift3D. It is a cheap and simple 3D program that outputs to Flash, which can then be output to laser. Pros: Converts 3D to vector images for Flash, so you can get a great combination of 2D and 3D images being animated together. Once your 3D scene has been converted to Flash you can then create small, powerful and streaming Flash web advertisements for your laser show, instead of relying on Pangolins laser-to-movie option, which can get bulky. Also, Swift 3D is very cheap with products ranging from $129-$295 US. Cons: The main draw back is that you won't get an immediate laser preview, you'll have to wait until it's been output to Flash and hten converted to laser (Swift 3D actually makes a very basic program which creates 3D objects out of 2D text and vector images, all inside of Flash). Also it's not as versitile as 3DStudio Max or Cinema 4D, but you really don't need anything too complex for lasers. I thought that I would throw this idea out there if anyone was interested.
