Well, fuck your ssd anon
Tested on sandboxie
>>
>>625938
You'll unironically get less bloatware with a pirate

Even a background miner would take up less resources than half of the palettes of shit they deliver to you
>>
>>625938
You can deselect some stuff in the installer
The rest you have to delete/uninstall manually though
>>
>>626015
* Also I wouldn't recommend using 2018
The last "kinda stable" version of 3ds Max is 2016
>>
>>626017
Is there portable version where I could just enter my serial number without having to crack anything?
>>
>>625938
Nah
C++ Redists are required though for almost everything though

Anon... Where on Earth is the internet speed so shit its going to take you almost a third of a year to download 4 Gigs? And those C++ libraries aren't bloat, the program needs them to work.

And if you don't uncheck some elements in installer it's gonna get even worse. Nigga I bet you don't even know what you are installing on the system. Enjoy your botnet
>>
>>626170
why is Max such an infectious disease, even when compared to Maya it comes out as the worst
>>
>>626170
To be fair, 3ds is also much more capable than Blender and gives you more resources out of the box, so it's understandable.
>>
>>626173
Do you even know difference between software and bloatware?
>>
>>626177
Yes.
>>
How dare you imply that I'm dumb enough to just let any old Johnny come lately installer have it's way with my pc.
>>
>>626171
Fuck, why doesn't Autodesk just merge the two at this point?
>>
>>626170
>now your system is slow as shit because of the background processes

I use 3DSMAX 2018 Student version in a core i5 laptop from 2013 and it works perfectly, loads in about 2 minutes tops.

Because one is cross platform, the other isn't.
>>
>>626171

Maya still feels modern considering how old it is. Max feels like a dinosaur.

I like how just the licensing file for a.free educational license is mysteriously over 500mb

Oh, and uninstalling takes longer than installing

Get it fucking together autodeskt for fucks sake
>>
>>625938
Do what I did and dl a copy of 3ds max 2008

500 mb install ;)
>>
>>626427
Have you tried both? They are massively different, deceptively so because of the plain grey UI, but even minimal use is enough to see they are worlds apart under the hood. Not to mention MAX using Windows UI and Maya using Qt.
>>
>>626816
How is 3ds max 2008 compared to a new version? What are the drawbacks. I'm new to 3d and installed 2008 and am following arrimus 3d's beginner playlist (he uses 2010). Just wondering if I should be at a later version or if its fine.
>>
>>626436
2 minutes is a stupid amount of time lmao

Fucking poorfags and their 128GB SSDs...

Simple, get Blender

Literally the only thing that could be considerd worth a damn would possibly be the graphite modeling tools added in 2010 and cuda iray renderers for video cards.

I started out learning 2008, upgraded to 2010, used 2014 for a little while, now I'm back to 2008 and I'm so much happier.

No stupid ass gizmo, it starts up and runs faster, has a bunch of plug ins that work, already has an established scripting history etc

Still crashes regularly, but that's max for you.

So to answer your question, you may be missing a few minor things but the tradeoff is worth it imo
>>
>>627212

OPBut bloatware is still better than useless software. Back to your donuts already.
>>
>>627388
Thanks for the answer, I'm far from anything passable yet. But I'm also wondering about the results of using software that is 11 years below the current version. Is it still capable of decent results? Is it capable of making styalized characters like in overwatch look good?
