no. 1. can`t be done.
no. 2. just search google
no. 3. explain what you need to do a little more, as in set them up with Nadeo so they work in game or have you done that and you want to know how to upload them to actual webspace once this is done after it has been made or both?

You might want to look over at TM Creative.

I find Cinema4D to be by far the best 3D software around although you will find far more tutorials and resources for 3DstudioMAX on the web. Expect to pay about $3,500 for each with the essential add-ons unless you know some 'cousins'( :wink: ) who have it.

Well, 3dsMax ís an industrial-grade program, many big games are modelled with it. There are cheaper programs avaible (even free, non-profit programs, like Blender), but I don't know if you can use those for TM.

lol... have a look here...http://www.nextag.com/3d-studio-max/search-html This gets you the basic pack. Start adding on plug-ins for advanced hair, textures, lighting, and rendering and you'll quickly exceed $80,000. But if you master it you could create the next Shrek of Ratatouille and make yourself millions! Have a look at some of the galleries on http://www.cg-cars.com... some of the work is pretty amazing!!

Blender is free and it can do most things you would want to do with modeling too. Never made a car with it though, but it has to be possible. Just a lot of work.

What ever software you decide to use is going to a long time to learn. Best to start with the most basic tutorials and work your way up. Don't be expecting to model cars for at least a few hundred hours of learning.
