For modelling and rendering I would recommend blender - 
it really is very good. Watch some movies or tutorials
linked from blender page at http://www.blender.nl

The main problem with it is probably it's deliberate
ignorance of other 3d formats than IV 1.0,
videoscape and native blender. However the native format
is IMHO described on the homepage, so it should be possible
to make up convertors.
