Maya 2018 or 2019?
>>662784Do you really think it matters? The only difference is a number and some nonsense changes. People who buy into Maya have to upgrade the devs only have to say it's more stable. Just pirate whatever is more convenient you're going to have the same issues no matter what
animation cachingviewport performance improvementsbetter load timesarnold in the viewportand if you're pirating you get the newest arnold with sheen and polymesh to volume
>>662811>and if you're pirating you get the newest arnold with sheen and polymesh to volumeDoesn't this come with the edu version?
>>662814it should.i just meant that if you're upgrading a pirated version of maya from 2018.3 (or w/e the last one was) to 2019 it'll bring in the updated arnold renderer.pirated maya releases don't get updated for every arnold update so unless you're willing to fiddle around with separate mtoa pirated releases, you're only getting arnold upates with every major maya point release.
will maya 2019 include dynameshing?
>>662784More speed is always appreciated. Just waiting for muh plugins to get updated. Redshift devs released a cocktease update yesterday that didn't include 2019 support.>>662821Since 2018 you can enter the polyRemesh command in the commandport to do auto-retopology for a piece of geometry. It's not like Zbrush dynamesh (which is more like convert to vdb -> convert to polygons)>>662805Blender 2.8 isn't the only update that's ever been made to a piece of cg software you hateful shill. Are you one of the people downvoting Maya informational videos on youtube?
>>662827>Just waiting for muh plugins to get updatedthis I'm waiting for my staple plugin to get updated hopefully soon because this dude now charges for it... 2x evaluation performance increase sounds just too good to pass
>>662827>If yOu DoNT lIkE MAya Ur a blEnDEr ShILl
>>662805I'm a pirater and already have 2018, just wondering if it was worth the time upgrading >>662811Thanks, I guess it is
>>662830you just proved his point senpaitachi
>>662833>samefaggingYou are aware that blender and maya aren't the only 2 3d softwares
did they put in menu options for the polyRemesh and polyRetop yet? I can't see them.
>>662835>accusing of samefaggingyet another sign...
/3/ is such a slow board that shitposting seems like a huge waste of time. back on topic all
>>662830but what if he's a C4D shill? or a Modo shill? What then?
will entering an early graduation date whilst setting up an education profile limit my student license for maya?
ok i just signed up for autodesk student account. in regards to maya, do they watermark their files on education accounts, do they upload my data of my models to check against stuff at a later date?
>>663020lol just tell them what they want to hear senpai
>>663024i think not
>>663024there is a watermark on your renders + cutID on your fbx exports, but that's just itI personally never heard about them doubling down on individual pirates
>>663043There's no damn watermark on your renders. Eesh. They mark save files as "created with student version" version but all you have to do is save your file as .ma, open it in a text editor and delete the student line which is in the first 10 lines or so at the top of the file.
>>663044strange... I remember having a watermark or some other problems with student edition
>>663024Theres a video file showing all of your computer information and location as well as your webcam video for every model you make using their software. Then they use a bot to scour the internet so if it finds a file with data that doesn't make sense they sue you.The bot also searches around for every render so they can sue you from those.
>>662784there aren't enough developers on the autodesk payroll for one year's iteration to give you any grief. they don't make their money by gaining market share.
Don't use Maya 2019 lolhttps://youtu.be/bFQazxohwqk
