Hi [3/, i need some helpGoing back into 3D after 6 years of doing video editing.Can anyone share good expert level maya tutorials to get me up to speed without having to go through piles of trash?How are the sculpting tools? are they anywhere near as viable as a proper sculpting software?Can i incorporate more pipeline into maya w/o having to go into other software compared to half a decade ago?How does arnold compare to vray in popularity?Are the UV tools still horrible?
>>692139>How does arnold compare to vray in popularity?implying that popularity matters more than functionality
>>692145popularity often mirrors functionality
>>692139>How are the sculpting tools? are they anywhere near as viable as a proper sculpting software?No.>Are the UV tools still horrible?Outside of 3d coat and topogun they are the best now.
>>692139About Arnold... MAX removed vray and replaced it with Arnold, so don´t be surprised if the same happened to Maya. Like all the fancy new renderers, it has its own materials, its incompatible with standard materials and has its own light and cameras, and takes time to get used to. About sculpting, you can always export from Zbrush directly.
>>692177>MAX removed vray and replaced it with Arnold,such bullshitVray was always seperatetely availbable and still is
>>692177Back when i did CG i worked with both maya and zbrush and on complex projects it became an absolute nightmare.
>>692177shitposting/10this anon doesn't know shit about renderingArnold is indeed native in both Maya and MaxVray never was though, but it's more than ever a top tier rendererNobody uses "standard" materials and lights anymore
>>692251m8 that's like the most common and straightforward workflow possible
>>692254The jetleg from jumping apps becomes too disorienting as you go on into a very complicated project. I know this is lazy talk but you haven't seen what I've seen, an ocean of flipped texture maps streached beyond the horizen. A team of mimimum wage 3D artist staying in the studio with silenced phones up to 1am.
>>692256Wow, it's f-ing nothing then.
>>692177At first I thought you were doing next-level trolling, but considering your most recent posts I'm starting to believe you are genuinely retarded.
>>692276only noticed now that was a namefag LOL
Back on topic, where's the high quality turorials?
>>692256it's literally nothingany company that matters jumps from Zbrush to 3D softs like Maya, Max, or Houdini all the time>oh no zbrush flips textures verticallythat's the fucking easiest thing to fix in the universestop whining, we know you're a young noob just by the fact that you called them "apps"
>>692334No need to be an asshole
>>692329apparently, you don't know shit.
>>692256holy shit nigga get a grip
>>692358apprently I produce AAA shit daily, so I certainly know. stop whining
>>692256imagine being this bad
>>692357What are you talking about. They have the best intro to Maya going goes through every facet of the program. Now they don't make good art in it but that's up to you Nobody can beam how to be a good artists into your brain.
