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

seriously, defend this
>>
>>589828
takes 10 fucking seconds to set it on autoload. Seriously, there's a lot of shit to talk about Maya so this is nothing.
>>
>>589828
As 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.
>>
>>589828
yeah its fucking dumb, but far from a dealbreaker

Every thursday the higher ups dress up in robes and sacrifice a Blender user on an altar dedicated to The Pipeline.

>>590001
Can i come and watch? I'll bring a Blender user...
>>
>>590020
don't worry, when 2.80 is released we can render 'industry standards' users tears in realtime

>ultimate quads of idiocy
maya and max are part of any serious 3D production pipeline for film and games alike
>>
>>590091

Maya is god-tier, 3ds max is shit-tier at best.
>>
>>590093
houdini shits all over maya.
>>
>>590095
Not 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
>>
>>590102
wrong. Houdini is years ahead. Watch this new content at 12m12s

>>590077
last 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.
>>
>>590113
how do you eat? Do you just leech?
>>
>>590115
money 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 job

Those 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.
>>
>>590135
Congrats on, just now, discovering Houdini, identifiable posting style Blender guy.
>>
Blender is the best
>>
>>590104

That, 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.
>>
>>590379
unlikely. 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.
>>
>>590374

Not the best, but not nearly as bad as the haters make it to be.
