I'm trying to make a map with a person tied to an electricity Poll, And when the player pushes a button, The person dies out of an electricity shock,

Since hammer wouldn't be able to make this itself, i'm thinking of making a model for it

I'm new to Valve Hammer, and I know nothing about creating models,

so can anyone help with what programs to choose ?

I've gone through some posts here, and different users post different programs. Can anyone suggest a program perfect for making this model ? so i dont have to learn more than 1

Thanks

I think any 3d modeling software would suffice (ie. 3ds Max, Maya, Blender, etc.).
Blender is free, iirc.


But, keep in mind that you're using an engine that really can't handle much. Sounds to me like what you want to do might be a bit much... dunno though.

What if i use the hostage model from cs ?, is there a more easy program than the ones stated above ?

Is it possible that i may use just use the appearances of the hostage model and change its animation

I found out a light software for modelling, it goes by the name gmax or max

Heres the tutorial Link

http://twhl.info/tutorial.php?id=147

The gmax link at this site is broken, so just type gmax at google

there are plenty of easy and understandable tutorials of gmax which can be downloaded from its official site

You'll need a SMD importer plugin for Max/GMax to load the models from HL.
