Is Blender better than MODO at this point?
>>534901Does anyone know how well Modo handles big scenes (anything above 20 Mio. Polys or so)?Because that's one of the few things that really bugs me about Blender.
>>534910depends on your machine. my can swallow 80 mil. on blender and only 500 000 on modo. i use modo mostl for render shit. its simplier to asigne the materials.
Blender has more features but the UI slows me down compared to modo. Modo render is more reliable than cycles.I would probably use blender more if it wasn't for the UI.
>>535093Why can't developers just update the UI?
>>535096It's the entire concept behind the blender UI that is the problem. It only works if you use blender full time and have all the commands memorized.In modo, lightwave or Maya if I forget where some function is I can usually find it quickly in the menu. The other issue is if you are making concept models slowly you can still work with just the mouse and relax. I can lay back in my chair and model while drinking coffee in Modo and still get plenty done, blender needs keyboard + mouse for almost everything.
>>535103>blender needs keyboard + mouse for almost everything.not true.it just speeds up ur modeling 3x
>>535096They are going to. I can't recall if the plan was still to update it incrementally or if they've moved on from that idea and decided to do a complete UI update release, but they are doing it.
>>535093google it , press space
>>534901What really bugs me in Maya and Modo is the transforms commands. They feel so unnecessarily clunky after using Blender's transform system, it feels too slow using the grab-to-transform approach.
I'm starting to learn, just for hobby.Is Blender good enough or should i go with Maya?
>>535291Student licence with Maya, if you quit eh, if you stay you're career ready
>>535291As a Blenderfag I have to say you should try all three, starting with Maya. You might end up liking Blender or Modo or Max or whatever better, but time spent on any of them is valuable and you'll be able to translate things from one to the other. Once you learn the fundamentals (how to box model, what a normal map is, what specularity is, how lighting works, how texturing works, etc etc etc) you'll be able to watch how someone did something in Maya and adapt it to Blender or Max or whatever
>>535105Blender has many functions that simply are not present in visible menus without required keyboard interaction. If you don't use the keyboard, you will not get very far whatsoever.
>>535188After a while you'll understand how imprecise blenders tools are
>>535379>literally able to type in exact values>imprecise
>>534946>>535089Please fuck off.
>>535640I don't know
>>535695Can you repeat the question?
>>535395>all of the inputs are invisible unless you have a fuck load of ugly tabsMaya is better at organization
>>535737>goalpostsWe were talking about precision.
>>535750equal point for precision, blender loses a point for terrible UI, Maya wins
>>535751>gets btfo with previous claim>shifts goalposts about how better Maya's UI is
>>534901Modo is a good modeler, better than Blender, but the rest is so and so. You don't want to animate characters in Modo, nor do you want to play with Million+ poly models. Blender is the better package (as a whole) but Modo is still better in some disciplines. Maya as package owns them both.
