I think it's more /gd/ but i fucking regret getting the new photoshop cc, takes literally 10 seconds to make a New file and it's a billion times more laggy
>>589801$185/mo richer than you are.
>>589808>get some coconut water, export in .fbx
Only be a paid userif you're ligit making money of it.
>install maya 2018>importing and exporting objs require a plugin>obj export isnt enabled by defaultseriously, defend this
>>589828takes 10 fucking seconds to set it on autoload. Seriously, there's a lot of shit to talk about Maya so this is nothing.
>>589828As a maya main, i have tons of shit to bitch about maya. This aint one of them . Get yo shit together.
thats why i left maya after 2 years learning it. got blender and feel alot better, no crash, no unneeded stacking of nothing, the only thing that can crash blender is if you have tooooo many polygons.
>>589828yeah its fucking dumb, but far from a dealbreaker
>load up Maya 2018>it crashes sometimes>$185/mo... oh wait, my boss pays for it>it's the software I use at my job>oh shit, I have a job>in 3D>imagine that
>>589982>have a job in 3D>forced to use Maya 2018well, at least it isn't Max
>>590000Every thursday the higher ups dress up in robes and sacrifice a Blender user on an altar dedicated to The Pipeline.
>>590001Can i come and watch? I'll bring a Blender user...
>>590020don't worry, when 2.80 is released we can render 'industry standards' users tears in realtime
>>590021> Blender 2.80 is released> It's 2021> Autodesk users asked for realtime rendering> Arnold has implemented realtime years ago by now, took them about 6 mos> Blender UI still shit> Blender rigging, animation, FX still shit> Post on /3/ about how Blender 2.9 is going to take over the industryWhen will it end?
>>590077> Autodesk users asked for realtime renderingWhat is Keyshot
>>590086its not industry.arnold is.
>>590000>ultimate quads of idiocymaya and max are part of any serious 3D production pipeline for film and games alike
>>590091Maya is god-tier, 3ds max is shit-tier at best.
>>590093houdini shits all over maya.
>>590095Not for character animation.
Upgrade to 2018.1 / turn off autoloading of seldom used plugins and scripts like bitfrost etc, no need to wait for them to load / you're doing something wrong if LMB crashes Maya
>>590102wrong. Houdini is years ahead. Watch this new content at 12m12shttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26CTJ6kEWDM&t=12m12s
>>590077last I read 2.80 is due for release next year. Might not be able to beat the big name software but looks pretty good for an individual user with no money.
>>590113how do you eat? Do you just leech?
>>590115money enough to eat and pay bills but not enough to sink into expensive subscriptions to shiny software that is usually paid for by studios and not individuals
>I only ever want to animate>Mr.Goldbergsteinblatt forces me to use it for my jobThose are the only two reasons to ever use Maya. If those don't apply to you, fucking drop that turd and pick up something else. If you have the balls for it, start learning Houdini to future proof yourself.
>>590135Congrats on, just now, discovering Houdini, identifiable posting style Blender guy.
Blender is the best
>>590104That, is legitimately one of the coolest fucking additions I've seen added to a fucking 3D software. Fuck I hope a lot more fucking programs catch on and copy the hell out of it.
>>590379unlikely. The other software packages would need to be re-written from the ground up. You might get one off features that are close to this in other software, but it will never match the inter-operability and customization that Houdini gives artists. Don't wait for your other software to catch up, start learning Houdini now.
>>590374Not the best, but not nearly as bad as the haters make it to be.
