Most of the 3rd party models in FB were done for the love of it. No $$$ involved.

Time for an honest reply. 3D modelers average anywere between 800/1500$ US per week. In order to get more, you need to learn animation and other skills. Then you can pull 80,000 a year easy, or more. Not a bad living at all http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

To answer the original questions:

The pay varies, average I'd say 50-55k/year USD. There's a broad range though, it really depends on what you model and how well you do, and if you're freelance or working for a company.

I got into it because a friend of mine introduced me to 3d Studio MAX 3.0 5 years ago. I really liked it and took 3d up as a hobby. Hope to turn it into a career this spring when I finish university.

Speaking of school, an education in 3d is generally not a requirement, thought people who have it tend to go further. However they probably have that education because they're into art to begin with, so its hard to say if these are related. Bottom line is its about what you do, not where you learned to do it.

As far as free software goes there are:

gmax -- free version of 3D Studio MAX, less some useful features www.discreet.com (http://www.discreet.com)

Maya PLE -- free version of Maya with most features www.avid.com (http://www.avid.com) (think?)

Softimage|XSI EXP -- free version of XSI with most options www.softimage.com (http://www.softimage.com) Personally, I prefer XSI, but I've been using it a lot, so I am a bit biased http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

If you're interested, drop by the forums at www.digitalrendering.com, (http://www.digitalrendering.com,) its a nice place to start in 3d.

A bit OT but i heard that starting pay for a capn at American Eagle is bout 17000 a year! That seems like FA to me, thats about double what i get on a student allowance in NZ (ignoring the differance between the two dollars).
