== Matrix Explanation ==
 
=== General ===
 
'''Software'''
 
 
The matrix above includes a number of different version of the software as some have different features available, this is also because not everyone is up to date with the latest versions of the particular software. The links are to individual wiki pages that includes more information on the software.
 
 
'''Price'''
 
 
The prices shown are in United States Dollars for the base line of products available. For prices in your local currency please refer to the software's website or use the below currency converter to get a rough idea of its cost.

This indicates whether the software's file format is natively supported by Unity. This allows the user to just save the file rather than exporting it.
 
 
'''FBX Mesh Export'''
 
 
FBX is an open-standard, platform-independent 3D file format that is supported by Unity. This indicates that the software package is able to export as FBX for use with Unity. FBX plugins can be download from the link below.
