I've been trying to look for a straight answer for a while, but I understand.If I pirate Maya as opposed to getting the education version, am I bypassing any difference? Any restrictions or weird things on the edu version instead of the full? I've heard that you're constantly connected to autodesk's servers with the edu?Sorry, I know these are noob as fuck questions but I've been really thinking of pirating cause I'm going to be moving to a place for the summer/fall with limited internet and it would be nice to just dive in with no big worries or roadblocks down the road. Any help/suggestions?
if you straight up sell anything online and get noticed you will be prosecuted. but it won't happen that quickly, you need to generate stable economy and have a company under your name for that to happen, and when it does you are fucked
>>523690I getcha. I have no intention to sell anything though. Just want to get better at the program
>>5236752016faggets still blark about student maya versions instead using blender or other better software.
The educational version of Autodesk software is missing nothing.It is very much the full-fledged version of the software, with the stipulation that you can't sell anything you produce. Some applications apply watermarks to exported work (as in a popup saying, "THIS WAS MADE IN MAYA 2016 UNDER THE EDUCATIONAL LICENSE")
>>523718I plan on using Blender and a few others alongside Maya, I was just wanting to know the differences with maya like I stated before.
>>523721Thanks! I think that's my best option for now. I'm already going to be juggling Blender, Zbrush, and 3D Max. Good to know there's no big restrictions, other than the watermarks.
>>523721Maya doesn't do this.
>>523730I use the edu version, there are no watermarks that I've ever seen.
>>523750pls go back to 2008
>>523766There are if you open the file in a full version, it will blurt out some shit about it being made with the edu version.Of course if you export with FBX or obj, it doesn't do that.
>>523836you can open up the maya file in notepad and edit out the educational line then it won't give the popup
