I am looking for apps in Ubuntu that I can work to create 3D animations, models and other similar stuff. Similar for example to Maya and 3D Studio in Windows.

With which apps can I count on.

Blender is absolutely the best in my opinion. Great tool working superb under Linux, many tutorials, and years of usage. And add to that build in game-engine. I am using it and i am very satisfied.
