Check out Dunreeb cutout (found via AlternativeTo) -- however it seems to be a plugin for Autodesk Maya. You might not be ready to spend $3,495 for Maya just to run this plugin.

Somewhere I read that if one is out of work temporarily, Autodesk has a special campaign for those people, and one also gets many of their software products for free.

So there are lots of possibilities, you just have to know them.

Welcome to Super User. Just FYI, you answered a very old question, and the site standards have tightened a bit since that question was posted.
