Can't afford Maya because young and been looking to get into modelling.
>>662361>Can't afford MayaMaya got an Edu license and it's freehttps://www.autodesk.com/education/free-software/maya
>>662361Just pirate maya and/or use student license and worry about paying for it when your skills are paying you. You'll be doing yourself a huge favor in the long run.
>>662369Forgot that I had a edu license but never used it. Gonna give it a go. Thanks for reminding me!
>>662361Jesus christ, let's be honest here. Virtually nobody pay for Max/Maya for home usage.
>>662369Enjoy bloatware and slight OS slowdown afrer installing autodesk software
>>662663That's an issue that solves itself after a while, once you get money and buy a better computer. This is not an option with Blender -- right now you may have better performance, but in a couple of years you won't, and you won't have any money to upgrade your computer.Choose wisely, choose Autodesk.
>>662361Even though its in beta (and some crashes) start with 2.80 yes.2.79 and below is a total assfuck to learn and backwards everything and is a a waste of time.2.80 makes blender actually close to a functional 3d program. Shame they couldn't have done this UI /design overhaul years ago.
>>662694new UI is shite imo
>>662663Bloatware? No. Pro software that includes stuff people clients need for their jobs. I have both Maya and Max installed and I didn't notice any slowdown. Go tell your lies somewhere else comrade (((Rosenthal))) erm I mean Roosendaal.
>>662663Typical broke blendie who thinks barely 10 gb of software is heavy for his shit tier hard drive already chock full of waifus.
>>662369Why do that when you can just pirate.Besides, you can at least own your models if you do. Autodesk owns everything you do if you get the education license for god knows what reasoning.
>>662725That's false. Stop spreading bullshit.
>>662725Nice "info" you picked up from a Blender "Guru" video.
>>662725This is 4d chess trying to make blendlets look bad
>>662663>bloatwareWhy are you even alive?
>>662370>and worry about paying for it when your skills are paying you.You simply cannot risk reaching that point alone using exclusively maya. If Autodesk chooses you to make an example of, your life is effectively over in debtor's prison. Maya's for the industrial career path; if you never intend on being in a situation where your employer covers the cost at some point in your life, then it's simply not an option as an entry-level career path.
>>662361no, it's not the industry standard softwaresaged
>>662361If you haven't maxed the potential of Blender, you shouldn't even consider other software.
>>662369>>662370explain to me why I would want to use maya or autodesk or whatever.What do they offer that blender doesn't?
>>663168The limitations of Blender are there within a few weeks of using it. For example, the horrible UV editor is something newbies will run into quite soon. If you've never stepped outside of Blender you will never know what you're missing.>>663471There is a massive why Blender sucks thread directly below this one. Go read it instead.This advice applies to anyone posting in this thread.
>>663473>This advice applies to anyone posting in this thread.it applies to anyone whom believes you dumb ass. literally just shut the fuck up with your stupid heckler software wars
>>663486Keep shitposting, lowercase.
Blender is good for making porn
>>663498Maya is better for making porn
>>663502we won't feed your anger
>>663502it definitely is but 3dporn is made by people who cannot into maya so blender is supreme
>>663508Just imagine the kind of porn that must be done off-hours at Pixar. I wish I could have a peek.
>>662694>2.80 makes blender actually close to a functional 3d program. Shame they couldn't have done this UI /design overhaul years ago.>tfw so used to the older UI that the new one trips me up constantly
>>663517yeah lol I'd like to see porn made by actual professional animators instead of amateurssadly I don't think this will ever happen even if they put it under anonymous every major name has their own distinct style and it doesn't matter what name they use, others will instantly recognize who made this performanceand with community infested with nofunallowed faggots, this animator is instantly roast and lose career guaranteed
>>662729>>662738>>662739It's true, I own Maya and a Skuddbutt model. Whenever I open it in my copy of Maya, this keeps popping up.That's why I'm saying pirate Maya. That way anything you create doesn't get slapped with this retardation.
>>662369Does that only work for Universities only? I take courses at a training center and i was told that it didn't matter. And they use student licenses as well.
>>663618I had a CODEX for Maya 2018 some time ago but i don't even remember if that works anymore, i did get 3DS Max 2016 this way though.
>>663618No, it's not true. That Skuddbutt's model is his, regardless of it being made with the Educational license. But he agreed to not distribute it for commercial purposes -- as long as that is satisfied, he can do with it as he pleases.((Besides, you can easily edit the .ma file to remove that notice. Though this would be in violation of the license, of course.))
>>663644But he makes money off a Patreon. Pretty sure that counts as commercial.Either way, it's easier to just pirate the damn software.
>>663651Yeah, I'm not debating whether he abides by the license, just pointing out that by using the Educational version no one is giving Autodesk the ownership of their work.
>>663618You literally just have to open the .ma with notepad, delete one line at the top, and save it.
>>663473>There is a massive why Blender sucks thread directly below this one. Go read it instead.Something something industry, something something python custom GUIThis really doesn't answer my question it just sounds like subjective taste.
lads, do MtoA patches get rolled out to educational maya licenses as soon as they happen or are you stuck waiting for point releases of Maya?
OP here. please stop commenting. Im sure both programs have their merits (Maya having slightly more), but leave the blender stuff on that one blender thread.
